Pronger to address Philly media at noon

Mar 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

Chris Pronger will address the media in Philadelphia at noon ET today. The 38-year-old Flyers defenseman — out since late 2011 with a concussion — recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Sportsnet to talk about his condition and his future, and we expect he’ll speak more about that topic today.

“What’s happened was I had 30-year-old eyes. I got hit and the doctor told me I had 60-year-old eyes,” Pronger said in the interview. “I don’t have very good peripheral vision. That so-called sixth sense? I used to really have a good one. Now, I couldn’t feel anybody comin’ around a corner. My kids scare me all the time.”

Following is Part 1 of the interview, with Part 2 to follow today.
