-

Former all- star defenceman Chris Pronger has joined the National Hockey League’s department of player safety. NHL senior vice- president for player safety Stephane Quintal made the announceme­nt Friday. Pronger hasn’t technicall­y retired, and the former NHL MVP is still being paid by the Philadelph­ia Flyers through 2017, even though he hasn’t played in the league since 2011. NHL commission­er Gary Bettman said this week that he would have no problem with Pronger working for the league while on the Flyers’ payroll. “Chris’s case is unique,” Bettman said.
