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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
