Nate Prosser is the first defenseman in Wild history to score back-to-back game winners.

He's been a healthy scratch 26 times this season, but now he's playing regularly and he's playing well. Prosser has five points, 43 blocks and a plus-3 rating in 25 appearances.

Nate Prosser has worked his way back into Minnesota's lineup.

He has appeared in 12 consecutive games since being scratched for three consecutive weeks. Prosser enjoyed a very strong night against Edmonton on Thursday in a 4-1 victory. He logged 20:09 of ice time, had a plus-3 rating and scored the game-winning goal. Prosser has one goal, three assists and 40 blocks in 24 games this season.
Jan 17 - 9:04 AM

Nate Prosser registered an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

It was Prosser's first point in two and a half months. He doesn't have much offensive upside and consequently shouldn't be on many people's fantasy radar.
Jan 12 - 10:34 AM

Nate Prosser is projected to play on Tuesday after spending the Wild's last two games in the press box.

Prosser should play alongside Clayton Stoner. Prosser has 13 points and 69 penalty minutes in 74 games this season.

As he has been for all but one game this season, Nate Prosser will be a healthy scratch Saturday against Florida.

Not earth-shattering fantasy news by any strecth.
Sat, Oct 19, 2013 02:01:00 PM

Nate Prosser will make his season debut Tuesday night.

He is taking the place of Keith Ballard, who isn't feeling 100 percent and will sit as a precaution. Prosser played in 17 games with the Wild last season.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 06:18:00 PM

Nate Prosser and Marco Scandella will sit in the press box for Saturday's game against Dallas.

They both will likely be in and out of the Wild lineup this season and as a result will have little to no fantasy value. Stay away.

Nate Prosser is still awaiting his first game action of the 2013-14 season.

"I'm just trying to stay as positive as I can and be ready when my number's called," he said. "Mentally, it can be pretty tough at times. But that's the name of the game. It's the position I'm in, just waiting around for an injury or bad play. And hopefully none of that happens." He played in 17 games with the Wild last season, but has been a healthy scratch for four straight contests this year.

The Minnesota Wild will rely more on defensemen Nate Prosser and Justin Falk this season.

Both he and Falk are helped by injuries to Jonas Brodin and Marco Scandella. "We feel [Falk and Prosser] have earned the right to get the first shot with the injuries that we have," GM Chuck Fletcher said. "They're young players that took a big step in their development, and I know our coaches are very comfortable putting them in the lineup. We like our depth on D, and when Scandella and Brodin get healthy, we'll be that much deeper." Prosser had 12 points and 57 penalty minutes in 51 games so he could be drafted late in deep pools.
Tue, Jan 15, 2013 09:30:00 AM

Nate Prosser has been given a one-game suspension for headbutting.

Prosser will miss Minnesota's final game of the season and given that they won't make the playoffs, he will not return until 2012-13. He had 12 points and 57 penalty minutes in 51 games this season.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 06:38:00 PM

Nate Prosser could be suspended after head-butting Jamal Mayers in the first period Thursday.

Prosser got five and a game for his misdeed. If suspended, it could carry over into next season.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 08:34:00 AM

Nate Prosser scored the only Minnesota goal in a 3-1 loss to the Blue Jackets Tuesday night.

The timing was right for Prosser, as he just signed a two-year extension to play in Minnesota through 2013-14. He has no fantasy value at this time.
Tue, Feb 7, 2012 09:45:00 PM

Nate Prosser has inked a two-year/$1.65 million contract extension with the Minnesota Wild.

The deal is one-way, so Prosser will make the same amount regardless of if he's playing in the AHL or NHL. He'll earn $800,000 next season and $850,000 in 2013-14. Prosser would have been a restricted free agent this summer.
Mon, Feb 6, 2012 12:20:00 PM

Nate Prosser is close to re-signing with the Wild.

It is reportedly a two-year, contract extension. Prosser has been impressive during four separate stints in the NHL this season and he's really impressed coach Mike Yeo with his ability to get under the opponent's skin. Look for Prosser to play a bigger role with the Wild next season.
