Dalton Prout Gets Praise for Lucic Punch

Referees praised Prout after he 1-punched Lucic: ‘Good job. Nice right’

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Dalton Prout will live forever.

The 24-year-old sent Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic to the ice with one punch on Nov. 21, and Prout’s been receiving thank you letters from across North America, shaking hands with strangers and kissing babies ever since.

A night later in Philadelphia, Prout was spoken to by two men who never give him the time of day, and they’re conversations he’ll never forget, writes The Province’s Jason Botchford.
