Over the course of his career, he played for several notable teams including the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks, and Philadelphia Flyers. He captained both the Blues and Ducks, leading them to significant achievements in the league, including appearances in the Stanley Cup finals with three different franchises and winning the Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007.

In addition to his on-ice contributions, Pronger has been involved in NHL administration, particularly with the Player Safety Division.

2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Why Is Chris Pronger Such a Jerk?

BR (bleacherreport)

Before we get into this, let me clarify a few things. One, I understand Chris Pronger is one of the toughest guys to go against in the NHL and plays the game with an edge, who often steps over the painfully thin line that separates aggressive play and malicious intent. I have no problems with these things. Two, I thought the coverage of the whole "puck thievery" hoopla was stupid and ridiculous, and couldn't care less about Pronger's or anyone's actions when it comes to swiping game pucks. Three, while I have no love for Chris Pronger, I believe him to be one of the best defenseman to emerge in the NHL over the last 25 years. He's also a jerk. Well, he's a little more than that, but I'm...

Chris Pronger settling into quieter life outside hockey

AP News

Chris Pronger finished a game of air hockey and put the paddle down to pick up the phone. It’s as close to hockey as the Hall of Fame defenseman will get any time soon. Pronger worked in the NHL’s department of player safety after his playing days were over and tried out the management path in the Florida Panthers front office. But that lasted less than three years, and at 46 the formerly feared defenseman has settled into a quieter, private life in the St. Louis suburbs helping his wife run a travel business with no desire to return to the game that made him a star. “I’m out of the hockey game and just a fan and kind of watching when I can,” Pronger told The...

5 Reasons Chris Pronger is the NHL's Ultimate Enforcer

BR (bleacherreport)

The uninformed hockey fan might think of an enforcer as a player who is merely a good fighter. Someone whose moment of glory occurs as he victoriously skates to the penalty box, pumping up the hometown crowd and ready to sacrifice five minutes of ice time for the sake of sending the opposing player to his locker room for stitches. A true hockey fan knows how absurd this notion is. While fighting will always have its place in the game, the role of the enforcer has changed throughout the years, and players holding that title are expected to do more than throw a few right jabs and tear off a jersey or two. As hockey has evolved, so has the enforcer and teams now rely on role players to...
