It looks as though Chris Pronger may finish his career as a Philadelphia Flyer.

Pronger's agent Pat Morris said on Tuesday that his client has signed a seven-year contract extension with the team worth $35 million. The contract also includes a no-movement clause, meaning Pronger, 34, is likely to wrap up his time in the NHL as a member of the Flyers.

"I am very excited to be able to retire a Philadelphia Flyer and I am looking forward to many years with the Flyers logo on my chest," Pronger said in a statement.

"We are pleased to have one of the NHL's premier defencemen in our organization and under contract long term," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. "When we made the trade for Chris, it was our intention to get him signed to an extension and we are glad we could come to this agreement."

On June 27, Pronger was sent from the Anaheim Ducks to Philadelphia along with forward Ryan Dingle in exchange for forward Joffrey Lupul, defenceman Luca Sbisa, two first-round draft picks and a conditional third-round pick in 2010 or 2011.

In 2008-09, Pronger had 11 goals and 37 assists for the Ducks.
