Blues Release Bissonnette From PTO

News: Paul Bissonnette was released on Saturday from his professional tryout offer with the Blues, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Paul Bissonnette suffered a groin pull in training camp that prevented him from skating Saturday, thereby ending his chances of cracking on the Opening Night roster. He'll take some time to heal up before pursuing an opportunity either in the minors or internationally.

Five Or Six Teams Looking At BizNasty

News: Roughly "five to six teams" have expressed interest in Paul Bissonnette for the coming season, reports the Washington Post. One of those teams is Washington. "Right now he's just looking for a good organization where he can contribute more than he's been able to, to date, in the last couple years in Phoenix," said Bissonnette's agent, Mark Guy.
Analysis: BizNasty has worked hard on his skating and his skills over the last couple years, but his ice time in the desert only continued to drop. He tried hard last season to prove he was more than a rock-fisted fighter, dropping his mitts just three times all year. Still, it was just two days ago that he told USA Today that he'd consider playing overseas if he can't ink an NHL deal.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Nets Second Goal Of Season

News: Paul Bissonnette scored his second goal of the season in Sunday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Despite only seeing 4:58 of ice time, Paul Bissonnette managed to be on hand for both of the Coyotes' goals in the 4-2 defeat, finishing with a plus-2 rating. With the tally representing his first point since Dec. 14, Bissonnette is probably a long way from attaining fantasy relevance in most leagues.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Receives Praise From Coach

News: Paul Bissonnette, and fellow fourth-liners Jeff Halpern and Kyle Chipchura, were singled out for praise from head coach Dave Tippett for their recent play, notes the Arizona Republic.
Analysis: Paul Bissonnette is seeing a little less ice time per game than in the past, but is playing in more games than he has the past couple of seasons. It is nice that he is getting singled out for good play, although his role remains limited.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Scores First Of Season

News: Paul Bissonnette scored his first goal of the season Saturday against Carolina, It was his first since November 19, 2011.
Analysis: Needless to say, goal scoring is not Paul Bissonnette's game. Still, it is no doubt nice for him to pot one every couple of seasons.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Paul Bissonnette picked up an assist in Wednesday's victory over the Avalanche.
Analysis: It might seem funny to say, but with five points in 18 games, Paul Bissonnette is one point from tying his career high of six points set last year. He is a role player and fan favorite for the Coyotes, but his contributions are limited.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Makes Debut

News: Paul Bissonnette played in his first game of the season Thursday against Detroit.
Analysis: He served a three-game suspension stemming from an incident in the preseason.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Completes Suspension

News: Paul Bissonnette has completed his three-game suspension and could play Thursday against the Red Wings, the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Coach Dave Tippett didn't indicate whether Paul Bissonnette would immediately return to the lineup immediately following his suspension, but he only saw light ice time last season and isn't expected to play much even if active. His primary fantasy utility comes from penalty minutes and hits, but he isn't much of an asset offensively.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Has Suspension Reduced To Three Games

News: Paul Bissonnette's suspension has been reduced from 10 games to three, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports.
Analysis: This is a bit surprising, as Paul Bissonnette's offense (leaving the bench during an altercation) is supposed to draw an automatic 10-game penalty. He's now eligible to return Oct. 10 against the Red Wings.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Appealing Suspension

News: Paul Bissonnette is appealing the 10-game suspension he received after leaving the bench on an illegal line change Monday, the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: The incident followed a big hit on Coyotes defenseman Rusty Klesla, who was removed from the ice on a stretcher as a result of the collision. If Paul Bissonnette's appeal is rejected, he will be eligible to return against the Kings on October 24.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Suspended For 10 Games

News: Paul Bissonnette has been suspended for 10 regular-season games after leaving the bench during an altercation in Sunday's preseason contest, TSN reports.
Analysis: Any player who leaves the bench during an altercation is subject to an automatic 10-game penalty. The rule is apparently no different during the preseason, so barring an appeal, Paul Bissonnette will miss a significant chunk of time to start the year. With only 14 points in 163 career games, Bissonnette is only a fantasy option in leagues that heavily reward penalty minutes.

Coyotes' Bissonnette A Healthy Scratch Monday

News: Paul Bissonnette will not play Monday against the Wild.
Analysis: Paul Bissonnette has averaged more than five minutes of ice time in his six games this season, but the Coyotes will roll without him Monday.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Finds Offense In England

News: Paul Bissonnette scored 21 points and added eight PIM in 11 games with the Cardiff Devils of the EIHL, the top hockey league in the United Kingdom.
Analysis: Biz certainly found his offensive groove overseas, contributing points at a pace he has never come close to touching in his career, though of course British pro hockey isn't known for a particularly high level of play. He still likely won't get enough playing time in Arizona to warrant much fantasy consideration.

Coyotes' Bissonnette To Play Overseas

News: Paul Bissonnette has signed with the Cardiff Devils of the British Elite Ice Hockey League, eliteprospects.com reports.
Analysis: He'll join the team Friday and may even see the ice sometime this weekend. The Coyote forward played in 31 games last season, scoring one goal and clocking 41 penalty minutes.

Coyotes' Bissonette Finishes Season With One Goal

News: Bissonette skated in 31 games for the Coyotes in the 2011-12 season, finishing with one goal and a minus-4 rating.
Analysis: Biz, a fan favorite on Twitter, is the Coyotes' enforcer, as he collected 41 PIMs in his 31 games. He's not someone to look to for anything productive for fantasy purposes, but he'll be back for a similar role next season.

Coyotes' Bissonnette Gets Into Game

News: Paul Bissonnette skated in a game for the first time since Jan. 10 on Thursday, logging 8:34 in the Coyotes' 1-0 win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: Biz also contributed five hits and took a five-minute fighting penalty.

Coyotes' Extend Bissonnette

News: Phoenix signed enforcer Paul Bissonnette to a two-year contract extension, the financial details of which have not been released ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Paul Bissonnette will remain in Phoenix for the 2011-12 season. Expect the usual from the Coyote defenseman; low point totals and a whole lot of PIMs.

Bissonnette Provides Spark for Coyotes

News: Bissonnette got into an altercation with the Hurricanes' Jay Harrison in the second period Saturday night.
Analysis: After the Coyotes took back-to-back penalties in the second period, Bissonnette took matters into his own hands. Even though the Coyotes' enforcer wants to be more than a pugilist, his role is clearly defined. He won't score goals but if he continues to play, he'll rack up PIMs.

Coyotes' Enforcer Bissonnette Wants to Expand Role

News: Bissonnette wants to be known for more than an enforcer, according to the Arizona Republic.
Analysis: As the Coyotes' tough guy, he has a specific role and what makes him effective is that he picks his spots. He only played in 41 games last year and racked up 117 PIMs. Don't expect him to score more than 10 goals this season, but he should earn more than 100 PIMs.

Bissonnette gets his money worth

News: The Sports Xchange reports Coyotes RW Paul Bissonnette earned his money Saturday night against Dallas. Bissonnette had the first of two fights with Krys Barch of Dallas in the first period -- with his team down 1-0 -- and after getting the better of the exchange started screaming and waving his arms at the crowd, telling them to wake up and get in the game. Barch didn't take kindly to Bissonnette's antics, and it was just a matter of time before the two danced again. That happened with six minutes left and the Coyotes trailing 3-0, and both guys got in some solid shots in the rematch.
Analysis: Bissonnette has a career-high 18 fights and 112 penalty minutes in 39 games. He has found a home with Phoenix because coach Dave Tippett loves his toughness. Still, Bissonnette is merely a flier in leagues that reward heavily for bad behavior. He has only five points on the season.

Bissonnette gets first assists

News: Coyotes D Paul Bissonnette tallied a pair of assists and finished at plus-1 on Tuesday against the Oilers. He had no assists in his first 26 games.
Analysis: Bissonnette already has a career-high four points in 2009-10, but when he dresses, it is mostly as a checking-line forward. Continue to use Bissonnette as a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.

Bissonnette dominates in fight

News: The Sports Xchange reports D Paul Bissonnette was one of the few skating bright spots for the Coyotes on Monday against the Oilers. In a building where toughness is respected, he had two big hits and then squared off in a fight with Edmonton's Zach Stortini, dominating the fight with some jackhammer jabs. He had only one shot on goal but was aggressive offensively.
Analysis: Bissonnette has become a regular for the Coyotes because of his added toughness. He already has gotten into nine fights this season and has 51 penalty minutes. He has definitely taken up the role of enforcer with Daniel Carcillo in Philly. Continue to use Bissonnette as a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.

Bissonnette makes Coyotes debut

News: The Sports Xchange reports D Paul Bissonnette made his Phoenix debut Saturday against Columbus but had only six minutes of ice time to impress. He had three hits, including a big one on Jacob Voracek in the first period, but no opportunities to drop the gloves and give the sellout crowd a chance to see what he does best.
Analysis: Bissonnette is a defenseman by trade, but played on the fourth line Saturday. Bissonnette is a career minor leaguer and likely won't see regular minutes with Phoenix. He is merely a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM when in the NHL.

Bissonnette claimed by Phoenix

News: The Coyotes have claimed D Paul Bissonnette off waivers from Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Bissonnette had one assist in 15 games with Pittsburgh last season. He has no Fantasy value at this time.

Bissonnette, Thomas back with Pens

News: The Penguins have recalled D Paul Bissonnette and RW Bill Thomas from the AHL.
Analysis: Neither of these players has any Fantasy value at this time.
