Chris Pronger spoke about the struggles, which included depression, he's dealt with during his recover from an inadvertent stick to his right eye.
Pronger hasn't played in 16 months, as the incident left him with vision loss and severe concussion symptoms. "You get headaches, you're not wanting to do anything, you sit around, you can't work out, you get depressed," said. "You try to work out and you get nauseous, a headache, you want to lay down. It's an awkward feeling, and it's something that when you haven't experienced it before you really don't understand what it is that these guys are talking about. I guess the biggest part is the depression and how you feel about yourself and how you feel about the injury. How dark you go down." Doctors are unsure if he'll ever regain his peripheral vision and he is still dealing with headaches -- even after a news conference -- when he has any physical activity.
