Chris Pronger

Drafted second overall in 1993 by the Hartford Whalers, he spent two seasons there before being traded to the St. Louis Blues. In St. Louis, his numbers began to expand on all fronts: points, plus/minus, and PIMs. By 1997, he was the team captain and would play nine seasons with the Blues.

His best year came in 2000 when Pronger finished the season with 62 points and a 52-plus rating. This earned him both the Norris and the Hart Trophies, making him the first player to do so since Bobby Orr. He played key roles in Edmonton’s run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006 and in Anaheim’s Stanley Cup win in 2007. He would also go on to captain the Philadelphia Flyers before concussion issues forced him to end his playing career in December of 2011.

He was the youngest member of Canada’s men’s hockey team at the 1998 Nagano Olympics and played for Canada in the 2002, 2006 and 2010 Olympic Games winning Gold Medals in 2002 and 2010. He is a member of the exclusive Triple Gold Club, winning World Juniors, World Championships and Olympics. Chris was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2015.

Prongers career stats including regular, and playoffs are 1,1340 Games, 819 points and 1,916 penalty mins.
