Defenseman Chris Pronger is "progressing very well," according to a brief update provided by general manager Paul Holmgren this afternoon.

Pronger was seen by Dr. Stephen Goldman today, Holmgren said. He will remain on strict bed rest for the next three days and did not make the trip with the team to Montreal for tomorrow night's game against the Canadiens.

In a scary incident, Pronger was hit with the blade of a stick above the right eye and immediately left the ice.
