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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
