(HockeyStL) -- Former St. Louis Blues and current Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger is out for the season and playoffs with severe concussion symptoms, according to the Flyers general manager.

Pronger, 37, has not played since November 19 and has played in only 13 games this season after also being sidelined with an eye injury for six games.

The six-foot-six defenseman has 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) in 13 games played.

Pronger has played in 18 seasons with the Hartford Whalers, Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks and Flyers.

Pronger has played the majority of his career with the Blues beginning in 1995 until 2004.  During his time in St. Louis, he was selected to four All-Star games, won the Hart Memorial Trophy and James Norris Memorial Trophy and led the league twice in plus-minus rating.

The Blues acquired Pronger in exchange for Brendan Shanahan on July 27, 1995.  The Blues would eventually trade Pronger to the Oilers for Eric Brewer, Doug Lynch and Jeff Woywitka following the lockout on August 2, 2005.
