Defenseman Chris Pryor played four years of collegiate hockey with the University of New Hampshire in the early 1980s before turning pro in 1983-84 with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles of the CHL.
In 1984-85, Pryor lived out his childhood dream of playing for the Minnesota North Stars. He dressed for four games with the Stars that year and another seven games the following year. However, it was the 1986-87 campaign which saw Pryor play his one and only full NHL season, when he suited up for 50 games with Minnesota and scored the lone goal of his career.
Pryor also played in 18 games with the New York Islanders over a three-year span but played out his pro career in the AHL with the team's minor-league affiliate, the Capital District Islanders.
