Minnesota Wild defenseman Nate Prosser made no friends tonight when he delivered a headbutt to Chicago Blackhawks’ Jamal Mayers.

Puck Daddy describes the incident:

With just over a minute to go in the second period, Blackhawks’ forward Jamal Mayers fired a shot on Josh Harding, then drove to the goalmouth. After Harding froze the puck, a scrum developed at the side of the goal, and Prosser went helmet to face on Mayers.

You can see the headbutt about 1 minute into the below video, it was definitely not accidental. The question we are left with is how many games will Prosser be suspended for this cheap shot? Mayers was awarded a 5-minute major.
