Defenseman Nate Prosser has been suspended one game by the NHL for head-butting Jamal Mayers. He'll be eligible to return to Houston after the Wild's finale. No word yet on the Wild recalls. Here is the video from Brendan Shanahan
Prosser loses $3,864 in salary.
Mayers to the Blackhawks media today: "Obviously I was shocked to have that happen. Never happened in my career. I've been punched in the face before but never been head butted. I wasn't happy about it. To his credit, Prosser did apologize to me after the game, which I appreciated. But still there's no need for that in the game."
