Flyers Acquire Pronger, Dingle from Anaheim
 
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have acquired defenseman Chris Pronger and forward Ryan Dingle from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for right wing Joffrey Lupul, defenseman Luca Sbisa, the team’s first-round pick (21st overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, the team’s first round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and a conditional third-round draft pick, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren.
 
“Chris brings a lot of things to any team he’s on,” said Holmgren in making the announcement. “He’s a proven winner and obviously he brings size. He can pass the puck as well as anybody and he brings a nice physical presence both in stature and the way he plays.”
 
“I'm very excited. It’s obviously a city that’s very passionate for the sport of hockey,” said Pronger. “The style of the play that the Flyers have been known to play certainly fits my game.  They’ve got some great young talent and I hope to help not only develop the team into being regarded as one of the top teams in the league, but winning a Stanley Cup.”
 
Pronger, 34, recorded 48 points (11G,37A) and 88 penalty minutes in 82 regular season games for the Ducks in 2008-09. He led the Ducks in average time on ice (26:56 – 2nd in NHL) and finished second on Anaheim’s defense in goals (11), assists (37) and points (48). He also posted 10 points (2G,8A) in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
 
Over parts of 15 seasons in the National Hockey League with the Hartford Whalers (1993-1994 to 1994-95), St. Louis Blues (1995-96 to 2003-04), Edmonton Oilers (2005-06) and Anaheim Ducks (2006-07 to 2008-09), Pronger has recorded 142 goals and 464 assists for 606 points and 1,457 penalty minutes in 1,022 regular season games.
 
He has also recorded 22 goals and 80 assists for 102 points and 286 penalty minutes in 147 Stanley Cup Playoff games, including 15 points (3G,12A) in 19 games to help lead the Ducks to the Stanley Cup Championship in 2007. In 2006, Pronger posted 21 points (5G,16A) in 24 playoff games to help lead the Oilers to the Stanley Cup Final.  
 
A native of Dryden, Ontario, Pronger won the Hart Memorial Trophy (most valuable player) and James Norris Trophy (best defenseman) in 2000. He has also been named to the NHL All-Rookie Team in 1994, NHL First All-Star Team in 2000 and Second NHL All-Star Team three times (1998, 2004, 2007), and participated in the NHL All-Star Game five times (1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2008).
 
Pronger has also appeared in three Winter Olympic Games as a member of Team Canada where he won the Gold Medal in 2002. He was the second overall selection in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Hartford Whalers.
 
Dingle, 25, posted 18 points (11G,7A) in 70 regular season games with the Iowa Chops of the American Hockey League in 2008-09. He has posted a total of 25 points (12G,13A) in 93 regular season games in the AHL with the Portland Pirates (2006-07 to 2007-08) and Iowa (2008-09).
 
Prior to turning professional, Dingle played three seasons for the University of Denver Pioneers of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (2004-05 to 2006-07), where he posted 55 goals and 43 assists for 98 points and 107 penalty minutes in 119 games.
 
A native of Steamboat Springs, CO, Dingle was a member of the Pioneers’ 2005 NCAA National Championship team with current Flyers defenseman Matt Carle.
