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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.

— Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said after their 4-3 OT win vs. Pittsburgh in Game 2, the franchise's first ever Stanley Cup Playoff victory
