Brandon Prust Suspension: New York Rangers Forward Suspended For Game 4 Vs. Devils, According To Report

New York Rangers forward Brandon Prust has been suspended for Monday's Game 4 of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals against the New Jersey Devils, according to a report (via Eye On Hockey). Prust elbowed Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov during the second period of Game 3 of the series at the Prudential Center. NHL VP of player safety Brendan Shanahan had a meeting with Prust on Sunday about the incident.

Prust was not penalized during the Rangers 3-0 win for the elbow. Devils coach Peter DeBoer referred to the elbow thrown by Prust as "head-hunting." This is the first suspension for Prust in his 301-game NHL career. Prust has one assist, 49 hits and 27 penalty minutes in this year's playoffs.
