Nate Prosser dropped the gloves with Predators forward James Neal on Saturday night.
The Wild wanted a piece of Neal because his hit injured Zach Parise the last time these two teams met. "It shows how we feel about what [Neal] did to our best player," said goalie Devan Dubnyk. "It was important just for the symbolic part of it. Guys are going to fight for each other." Nov 22 - 9:23 AM

Nov 6 - 10:01 AM

Nate Prosser, Kurtis Gabriel, Niklas Backstrom were scratched against the Jets on Sunday.

Unfortunately there simply is not any fantasy value to speak of between the three of them at this time. Prosser has seen the most playing time, just two games thus far, registering nothing of value.
Oct 25 - 6:23 PM

Nate Prosser will be in the Minnesota lineup against Anaheim Saturday evening.

Nate Prosser will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The 29-year-old has skated in just one game for Minnesota this season. Goaltender Niklas Backstrom will also be scratched tonight. Neither player will have fantasy value this season.
Oct 22 - 8:07 PM

Nate Prosser and Niklas Backstrom will again be healthy scratches as the Wild play the Ducks on Sunday night.

Unfortunately with Prosser unable to crack the lineup and Backstrom firmly planted as their third string goalie, there simply isn't much fantasy upside to speak of between them.
Oct 18 - 7:19 PM

Nate Prosser and Niklas Backstrom will watch their Wild take on the Kings from the stands on Friday night.

In the slimmest of ways, Prosser is a marginally more valuable fantasy asset than Backstrom who is firmly planted as the third string goalie. Then again, Prosser's a far more valuable asset to the Wild than Backstrom these days so he has that going for him.
Oct 16 - 9:21 PM

Nate Prosser will make his season debut on Thursday.

Prosser had two goals and seven points in 63 games with Minnesota in 2014-15. To make room for him, Wild coach Mike Yeo has made Christian Folin a healthy scratch.

Nate Prosser's finger was sliced by a skate in Game 4 against Chicago.

He required eight stitches to repair the damage. Prosser can become an unrestricted free agent in July, but he is open to re-signing with the Wild if the team is interested. He dressed in one playoff game with Minnesota and in 63 contests during the regular season.
May 11 - 3:20 PM

Nate Prosser looks like he'll be back in the lineup for Game 4.

He hasn't suited up in the playoffs this year, but he was paired with Matt Dumba during the morning skate. If Prosser does play then that would bump Jordan Leopold into the press box.
May 7 - 1:04 PM

Nate Prosser and Christian Folin will be scratched for Game Three on Tuesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

There simply isn't much fantasy value to speak of here, unfortunately.
May 5 - 6:46 PM

There simply isn't much fantasy value to speak of here, unfortunately. Folin has 11 points in 41 career NHL games without any playoff experience. While Prosser has no points in 10 career playoff games, and just 28 points in 189 career regular season games.
