NHL superstar Chris Prongser is reportedly considering a comeback to the sport and will play a part in the Olympic Games, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.
Pronger was a member of the U.S. Olympic team in 1984, the year the U of A and the Soviet Union won gold medals at the Olympics.
He is also the all-time leader in goals, points and points per game for the NHL.
He is a member for the third time in his career, this time in the United States, and his NHL career began in 2009, when he was drafted No. 4 overall in the 2008 NHL Draft.
The Associated Press first reported Prongers future plans in July.
In August, he tweeted that he would be making his return to the game of hockey, after playing two seasons in the NHL for the Los Angeles Kings.
“This is what I’ve always wanted to do and what I always wanted in my life: play in the Olympics,” Pronged told reporters at a Los Angeles restaurant.
“I’m so excited and excited to be back.
I think I’ve got a great future in this game.
I’ve been working very hard.
The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday that Prongern’s agent, Michael Ault, confirmed the report to the newspaper.
The news of Prongert’s plans came as the team announced that it would begin training camp for the upcoming season in a new rink, the Los Angeles Forum.
It will be the first time the team will be open to the public since the arena was demolished in 2007.
