The NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Sunday announced that Prout has a hearing scheduled for Monday afternoon.
The incident occurred when Gudas hit a Devils player at the blue line, leading to Prout coming in a few seconds later and delivering an open-ice hit well away from the puck on Gudas. A large melee ensued, including a fight between Wayne Simmonds and Prout.
In addition to his fighting major, Prout was given a major penalty for interference and a game misconduct.
Gudas briefly returned to the game but left after the second period with an upper-body injury.
