Pronger May Miss Start of Training Camp

From Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post:

Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger is progressing nicely from offseason back surgery, but he may miss the start of training camp, general manager Paul Holmgren acknowledged Friday.

Pronger had disc fragments in his lower back removed on May 12 and underwent surgery to repair a broken hand on March 15.

According to Holmgren, Pronger was examined by a back specialist and a hand specialist last week and was given permission to step up his rehab.

I read this incorrectly at first glance and thought Pronger was announced “Miss May,” which would make for an awkward calendar/centerfold.
