There's been no kind of announcement but it sounds like Hall-of-Famer Chris Pronger is ready to begin the next chapter of his National Hockey League career.
During Thursday edition of Insider Trading, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun revealed that when Pronger's contract expires this month, there is a real possibility that he leaves the NHL's Department of Player Safety to join the ranks of an NHL organization.
"For the right fit I think Chris Pronger is ready to join an NHL team & front office," said LeBrun. "He's sought counsel recently from Steve Yzerman about Steve Yzerman's journey from learning under Ken Holland and getting that tutelage before becoming a GM himself."
"I think Chris Pronger would like to take that path."
Yzerman has been very successful as far as most fans and pundits are concerned, so Pronger seemingly has a very good teacher as he gears up for perhaps the biggest challenge of his career to date. LeBrun did not specify which teams Pronger was looking at, but did state that he could look to begin this newest journey somewhere as an assistant GM.
He would certainly be an intimidating general manager to negotiate with.
