Devils defenseman Dalton Prout suspended 2 games

NEW YORK (AP) The NHL has suspended New Jersey Devils defenseman Dalton Prout two games for interference against Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas during a game on Saturday.

The league announced the punishment Monday, noting that Prout is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the CBA. He will forfeit his two-game salary of $38,414.64, with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Prout was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for the interference at 7:59 of the second period for checking Gudas as the Flyer was skating to the bench on a line change while the puck was in the other end of the ice.
