PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chris Pronger and the Philadelphia Flyers agreed to a multiyear extension, ensuring the former NHL MVP will remain under contract beyond this season.
The Flyers, who announced the new deal on Tuesday, acquired the star defenseman in a blockbuster, draft-day trade with the Anaheim Ducks last month. Philadelphia surrendered a pair of first-round picks and a promising prospect to get Pronger.
The 34-year-old Pronger had 11 goals and 37 assists last season with the Ducks.
