The Flyers officially announced that Chris Pronger will be the 18th Captain in Flyers history. Pronger was the clear favorite to be named Flyers captain since Mike Richards was traded earlier in the summer.
Pronger has been outspoken and a very good leader for the Flyers ever since he was signed here. He stepped up his game and how he leads on and off the ice. Although injury prone (and may or may not be ready for Opening Day), Pronger continues to be the Flyers emotional leader.
Danny Briere and Kimmo Timonen will both wear the "A" for alternate captains during the season.
