Minnesota Wild defenseman Nate Prosser received a five-minute major and game misconduct for elbowing New Jersey Devils winger Tim Sestito on Thursday.
Video of the collision isn’t available yet, but CJ Fogler uploaded a GIF of the incident; Sestito needed to be helped off of the ice after the hit.
More than a few people wondered if the correct call was made.
someone has to explain to me how Prosser got five and a game for Sestito hurting himself.—

Prosser, 27, has been suspended by the NHL once (one game in April 2012) during his NHL career.
