Canucks' Brandon Prust fined for spearing Brad Marchand in groin
Infraction against Boston forward happened Saturday night
Vancouver Canucks forward Brandon Prust was fined $5,000 US by the NHL on Sunday for spearing Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand on Saturday night.
Prust told reporters it was the "best money I've ever spent."
A 10-minute misconduct was assessed for the incident in the third period of the Bruins' 4-0 victory in Vancouver.
However, Prust also claimed he did not intend to hurt Marchand.
"Just frustrations, happens out there. I wasn't really trying to injure him," he said.
"I was just coming back because the puck was coming back up the boards."
