Chris Pryor begins his seventh season with the Flyers. He was hired by the Flyers in the summer of 1999 as a US amateur scout, and served in that capacity until being promoted to his current role in November of 2006.

Prior to joining the Flyers, Pryor worked for the New York Islanders from 1992-1999 as a minor league coach (1992-94), scout (1994-99) and director of player development (1994-98). After retiring as a player early in the 1992-93 season with the Capital District Islanders (AHL), he stayed with Capital District as a full time assistant coach for the remainder of the season and then served as an assistant coach with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles (IHL) for the 1993-94 season.

Pryor played parts of six seasons in the NHL with the Minnesota North Stars and New York Islanders (1984-90). He also played for Salt Lake during the 1983-84 season and Capital District from 1990-92.
