Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Chris Pronger will undergo surgery on his back Thursday.
The 36-year-old veteran blueliner appeared in just three of 11 playoff games for the Flyers this year due to a lower back problem and was limited to 50 regular season games because of numerous injuries.
Thursday’s procedure will be his fourth surgery in the past 12 months. Pronger had knee surgery last summer as well as further procedures on his knee and foot.
