Dalton Prout has been suspended for one game for punching an unsuspecting opponent.

He struck Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov on Sunday. Kucherov left the game after taking the hit, but he will be fine to play on Tuesday. Prout won't be eligible to return until Saturday against New Jersey.

Dalton Prout will have a hearing with the league on Tuesday.

He will probably face supplemental discipline for a roughing/sucker punch incident on Sunday against Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov.

Dalton Prout should expect to hear from the Department of Player Safety after injuring Nikita Kucherov on a sucker punch Sunday.

The Blue Jackets were down 1-0 about half way through the game when captain Nick Foligno upended Lightning goalie Ben Bishop behind the net. The ensuing scrum included Kucherov as one half of the Foligno sandwich. Prout gave Kucherov's face a fully loaded and gloved punch, and was promptly assessed a minor for roughing and a game misconduct. Milan Lucic was given a game's suspension for a similar act back in January for what it's worth.
Mar 13 - 9:07 PM

Dalton Prout scored just his second goal of the season on Monday.

It was an open net goal fired from the other end of the rink though. He has just five points in 43 contests this season and 26 points in 188 career contests.
Feb 23 - 8:51 AM

Dalton Prout has been a force physically for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

That was on display Thursday when he fought Chris Stewart of the Ducks and apparently broke his jaw. Prout is on the bubble as far as Columbus defensemen are concerned and the return to action of David Savard just pushes him down the depth charts.
Feb 13 - 9:08 AM

Dalton Prout scored his first goal in 104 games during Saturday's 3-2 loss to Boston.

It was Prout's first tally since March 15th, 2014 against Minnesota. Quite the spread for the rugged defender. He now has four career goals and 24 career points in 177 games.
Jan 23 - 11:00 PM

Dalton Prout will miss his fourth straight, joining healthy scratch Fedor Tyutin in the press box when Columbus visits Toronto Wednesday night.

Prout was drafted in 2010 in the sixth round, 154th overall by Columbus in 2010 and has dressed in 173 games for the Blue Jackets (3-20-23). Fedor Tyutin will sit out for the first time since Halloween. The 18 minute a night rearguard is replaced by Cody Golubef.
Jan 13 - 6:54 PM

Dalton Prout and Cody Goloubef will be scratched against the Islanders on Tuesday night.

While Goloubef hasn't been productive through his 18 games this season, Prout has at least performed well as a plug. He's recorded 43 PIMs and 60 hits through 28 games, however this is his fourth straight game on the pine.
Jan 12 - 6:15 PM

Dalton Prout, Cody Goloubef, and Kevin Connauton will each be scratched from Saturday's match with Carolina.

Unfortunately there isn't much fantasy value between Goloubef and Connauton who have barely impacted the stat sheet. Prout however has at least posted an impressive 43 PIMs and 60 hits through 28 games.

Dalton Prout and Justin Falk will both be scratched from Friday's match with Carolina.

While Falk has yet to make an impact on the stat sheet through 11 games, Prout has at least produced a modicum of fantasy production through 28 games thus far. He's posted an impressive 60 hits and 43 PIMs, which makes for a nice plug in pools that reward him.
Jan 8 - 6:33 PM

Dalton Prout will tag in for Kevin Connauton on Tuesday night against Dallas.

Neither boast much fantasy value, but Prout does have 21 PIMs and 38 hits over 19 games this season. Suggesting he's a nice plug if you need such stats in a pinch.

After sitting out the past three games, Dalton Prout will pair with Fedor Tyutin in Saturday's match with Philadelphia.

Through 16 games this season Prout has but one point, 21 PIMs, and 30 hits. Which unfortunately does not make for much of a fantasy asset.
Sat, Dec 5, 2015 06:57:00 PM

Dalton Prout and Michael Chaput will each be scratched for Tuesday's match with Montreal.

This will be Prout's third straight game as a healthy scratch. Chaput meanwhile has but six points in 50 career NHL games, has put up a respectable 10 points in 19 games for AHL Springfield this season.
