There are generations of hockey players who never would have achieved their success without the love and support from their “hockey moms.” Bobby’s Big Day Bobby Orr has always enjoyed May 10.

Pre-Flyers History Pronger started his professional journey as a member of the Hartford Whalers. He was drafted by the franchise second overall in the 1993 Draft. He only played a couple of years with the club before being dealt to the St. Louis Blues for winger Brendan Shanahan. The Blues are where Pronger spent the majority of his career, being a solid complement on the backend to forwards like Brett Hull, Pierre Turgeon, and Pavol Demitra as well...
