Chris Pronger hasn’t played since Nov. 19 because of a concussion and anyone who is still hoping that he’ll be ready for the start of the 2012-13 campaign won’t like the latest news from Philadelphia Flyers GM Paul Holmgren.

Holmgren said Pronger is still dealing with headaches and is “the same,” according to Sam Carchidi.

He will go to the Skate Zone at Voorhees in the coming weeks, but Holmgren said that Pronger will not be skating.

The current CBA is set to expire on Sept. 15, but if the season starts on time then the Philadelphia Flyers will be dealing with a number of injured blueliners. In addition to Pronger, Andrej Meszaros is recovering from an Achilles injury and Andreas Lilja underwent hip surgery.
