VIDEO: Prout unleashes series of vicious cross-checks on Plotnikov
Defender Dalton Prout used the shaft of his stick to tee off on Sergei Plotnikov in the corner, unleashing a series of forceful cross-checks into the shoulder area as well as up dangerously close to the rookie's head.
He was assessed a double-minor for the infraction, and the NHL's Department of Player Safety - which suspended Brandon Dubinsky earlier this season for landing a cross-check to the back of Crosby's head - won't levy further discipline, according to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.
