PITTSBURGH -- Back in February at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game, Red Deer defenseman Matt Dumba and Baie-Comeau left wing Raphael Bussieres and engaged in a pretty spirited fight.
When Bussieres was picked by the Wild in the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft on Saturday, the first person he saw at the team's table on the draft floor was the team's first-round pick -- Dumba.
"I shook his hand," Bussieres told NHL.com. "It was a little awkward, but just funny. We both laughed."
Bussieres said there's no hard feelings or about what happened, saying it was just part of that game.
"I have nothing against Dumba," Bussieres said. "The game is intense. He hit one of the players I played with and I just fight him."
