Jan 4 - 7:08 PM

As we thought, Dalton Prout and Milan Lucic got into a fight Saturday.

We suggested getting Prout into your lineup if you needed help in the penalty minutes category and he ended up with seven PIMs as he and Lucic took roughing minors in the first before brawling in the second. Prout was not happy as he thought Lucic jumped him in the fight. "It’s obviously not the way you should start a fight," Prout said. "You can never be too happy about getting jumped. Sometimes you get in those situations and you learn how to protect yourself. Sometimes you can jockey for position forever, or sometimes you take one to give one. I’ll take on one to give one." Prout ended up with a cut under his eye. He was a minus-one with four hits in the 6-2 win over the Bruins.

It may be worth your while to put Dalton Prout in your lineup Saturday if you need penalty minutes.

The Blue Jackets take on the Boston Bruins and the last time these two teams met, Prout leveled Milan Lucic with a big punch, a punch that Lucic will not soon forget. "We get two more opportunities to play the Blue Jackets," Lucic said on November 21. "I’ll be ready." Tonight's the night.

Dalton Prout has been getting plenty of compliments after he knocked down Milan Lucic with one punch last week.

Prout became a hero to many when he fought with Lucic and won. "I got a lot of thank-yous from family, friends, fans, players," Prout said. "I got a lot from Montreal and some from Vancouver, but they came from all over. During warm-ups the (following night) in Philly, an (NHL) official came up to me just before the national anthem. He just said, ‘Nice right hand.’ That’s the first time I’ve ever talked with an official other than arguing about a call." The Blue Jackets and the Bruins next play on December 27 and there should be plenty of fireworks in that one. Take Prout that night if you need the penalty minutes.
