In a conference call with reporters Thursday, Pronger said he was not quite over the virus and “I don’t know what’s going on.”
Pronger’s surgery was his fifth in 16 months. He said most of them werefluky, caused by getting hit with pucks, and implied he wasn’t breaking down because of his age.
The Flyers said he will be back in a little less than four weeks. Pronger said it could be three to six weeks.
If the Flyers were playing in the Cup Finals, Pronger said, he would not have had the surgery and would have played through the pain. He wants to be 100 percent for the rest of the season and the playoffs.
As for the virus, Pronger said he has been experiencing headaches and nausea like never before; he revealed he passed a concussion test.
