Chris Pronger is out of action yet again.
Injuries kept the current Philadelphia Flyers captain out of the final three games of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs after he missed 32 regular season games.
Since returning from the eye injury, Pronger said he's had knee pain. An unknown illness kept him out of the lineup initially, but he is now out due to his decision to have knee surgery.
Pronger told Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer he should be back in three to six weeks.
The Flyers need that time frame to be as short as possible.
