NHL suspends Wild D Nate Prosser 1 game for head-butting Jamal Mayers

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Minnesota Wild defenceman Nate Prosser has been suspended for a game because he head-butted Jamal Mayers of the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night.

The NHL says Prosser will forfeit more than $3,800 for the hit at 18:19 of the first period. Prosser was given a major penalty and a game misconduct.

The Wild's next game is the regular-season finale Saturday night against Phoenix. The Coyotes already have clinched a playoff spot and Minnesota has been eliminated.

The NHL announced the penalty on Friday.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
