PITTSBURGH — By the time they're selected in the Draft, the NHL's top prospects have been put through rigorous physical and psychological evaluations.

But until Thursday, no one had asked them which animal they'd like to beat the crap out of in a fight.

Fear not, NHL Draft fans: Your friends at Puck Daddy were there to ask Nail Yakupov, Ryan Murray, Alex Galchenyuk, Malcolm Subban, Morgan Rielly, Jacob Trouba and Mathew Dumba which of nature's creatures they'd like to fight the most.

The results ranged from bears to family pets to a hummingbird. Enjoy!
