Brandon Prust is definitely not remorseful for spearing Brad Marchand.

Prust was fined $5,000 by the NHL for that incident, but he referred to it as "the best money I ever spent." He added that he didn't feel he hit Marchand very hard and believes that Marchand "sold it pretty good." Vancouver will play against Boston again on Jan. 21.

The Department of Player Safety has fined Brandon Prust $5,000 for his spearing of Brad Marchand.

Hockey sticks can be used for many things such as scoring goals, tapping the boards in applause, and even building furniture. But they're not meant to be used to spear one another. Don't do that.

Brandon Prust got into a fight with Brandon Mashinter of the Chicago Blackhawks in his return to action Saturday.

Prust was out for 11 games after suffering an ankle injury on October 27. Prust now has 30 penalty minutes in 10 games with a surprising five assists. He is worth picking up, especially if you need penalty minutes.

Brandon Prust (ankle) will get back in the Vancouver lineup on Saturday.

Brandon Prust (ankle) will probably be able to play on Saturday.

Brandon Prust is getting closer to returning to action after suffering an ankle injury on October 27.

It was thought that Prust would be out of action for four-to-six weeks and it looks like it will be a lot closer to four for the enforcer who could rejoin the Canucks on their current road trip. He has yet to resume practicing. Prust has been a find fantasy-wise in the early-going as he had five assists and 25 penalty minutes in nine games before the injury with a plus-three rating.

Brandon Prust injured his ankle in the second period against his former team in Montreal on Tuesday.

Prust looked to have twisted his ankle while falling into the boards awkwardly and had to leave the game. The good news is that Prust was able to leave under his own steam. It was a shame because Prust was playing well against his old team, assisting on two goals by linemate Jared McCann in the first period.
