Prospect Of The Week

Raphael Bussieres

Sorry to Justin Fontaine and Erik Haula, both who had great weeks, but Bussieres just knocked it out of the park, or ice, or whatever.

He score three goals and four assists in just three games. He also had a nice +6 in total and total of 10 shots.

Per the QMJHL link posted above:

...In three road games, Raphaël Bussières of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar collected 7 points including 3 goals and a great +/- of +6, extending his streak to 6 games with at least one point. The second round pick of the Minnesota Wild collected at least 2 points in every one of his games.

Bussieres was drafted for his grit and a touch of offense so it is nice seeing the offensive side starting to be realized, but like Brett Bulmer, if he doesn't realize it at the NHL level, he'll always be useful as a pain in the ass type of player. We are starting to stock up on those with Bulmer, Zucker, Larsson and with Clutterbuck, Powe and Mitchell on the pro roster.
