Originally drafted second overall in the 1993 Entry Draft by the Hartford Whalers, Pronger has enjoyed 17 bone-crushing seasons with Hartford, St. Louis, Edmonton, Anaheim, and Philadelphia.
Overshadowed by his physical presence and leadership qualities, Pronger has a secret weapon that opponents tend to forget about: the fact that he has one of the most dangerous slapshots in the NHL.
The reason Pronger's slapper is so dangerous is because it's not only hard, but accurate! He prefers to shoot low, which creates an abundance of deflection goals and rebounds to frustrate puckstoppers.
His shots have also put many players on the disabled list with a variety of foot injuries. Just ask teammate Jeff Carter, who last April, suffered a fracture during a 4-1 Game Four victory over the New Jersey Devils.
