Howard Eskin was right. Chris Pronger will have back surgery tomorrow.
After getting tested on Tuesday for a herniated disc, it was revealed on Wednesday that the 16-year veteran will need surgery and will likely need a little longer than six weeks to recover.
General manager Paul Holmgren said that Pronger will have a discectomy — or removal of the herniated disc — in New York at The Hospital for Special Surgery.
Richards and Meszaros both had successful surgery today.
