New Jersey Devils defenceman Dalton Prout has been suspended two games by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for interference on Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Radko Gudas.

As Gudas was exiting the zone, having just delivered an open ice hit on Flyers forward John Quenneville, Prout leveled him in the neutral zone.

The Devils defenceman was assessed a five minute major for interference and a game misconduct on the play.  He also picked up a fighting major for dropping the gloves with Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds following the hit.

Gudas was helped off the ice and left the game with an upper-body injury. He did not play Sunday against the New York Rangers.
