Prust was suspended two games for the hit in the first period that broke Stepan’s jaw. The former Ranger texted Stepan to say he felt "awful" about the result of the hit. "It's an unfortunate injury, unfortunate for him and unfortunate for me," Prust said. "I'm not out there trying to injure anybody, and (Stepan's) a friend of mine.
