Brandon Prust Suspended One Game

Almost 1 1/2 hours ago reports surfaced Prust was getting suspended for one game.

As of this moment, still nothing official from Brendan Shanahan but I am sure the reports are accurate.

Update: Here’s confirmation via video…

And here’s the NHL’s press release:


NEW YORK (May 20, 2012) – New York Rangers forward Brandon Prust has been suspended for one game for elbowing New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov during the teams’ Eastern Conference Final game in New Jersey on Saturday, May 19, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 2:31 of the second period.
