The Philadelphia Flyers say captain Chris Pronger will miss the rest of the season with “severe post-concussion syndrome.”

The decision was made after the 37-year-old was examined in Pittsburgh by doctors John Maroon and Mickey Collins, who also treated Penguins star Sidney Crosby.

“Chris will continue to receive treatments and therapy with the hope that he can get better,” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said in a release Thursday.

Pronger has missed the Flyers’ last 11 games since coming down with what the team first described as a virus and later changed to post-concussion symptoms.

He also took a stick in the eye from Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski in late October that resulted in facial trauma and caused him to miss six games.

Pronger has one goal and 11 assists in 13 games this season.

The Dryden, Ont., native, who won gold medals with Canada at the 2002 and 2010 Olympics, signed a seven-year contract with the Flyers in 2009.

He also won the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007.

Pronger joins a long list of NHL players suffering from concussions or concussion-like symptoms this season. Crosby returned to action last month for the first time since early January, but has since suffered a setback and is again out of the Penguins lineup.

Flyers forward and NHL points leader Claude Giroux is also out with a concussion, as is the league’s top goalscorer Milan Michalek of the Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes sniper Jeff Skinner.
