Chris Pronger spoke with Sportsnet's Dan Murphy in an interview recently that will air in a two-part series beginning Wednesday night in Canada.
Pronger was struck in the eye on Oct. 24, 2011 by an errant stick, which resulted in an ocular concussion and he hasn't played since Nov. 19, 2011. "What happened was, I had 30-year-old eyes. I got hit and the doctor told me I had 60-year-old eyes," Pronger said. "I don't have very good peripheral vision." Pronger also touched on his current state and the subject of retirement when he said: "It's gotten a little better. I can leave the house and go do stuff. If I do too much, I may get a headache. Occasionally, if I start to feel a bit better and I do a bit more, I get nauseous. Everyone wants to go out like a John Elway, where he wins two Super Bowls and retires on his own terms. Very, very few people get a chance to do that."
