Bissonnette, who was challenged by former Phoenix Coyotes teammate Keith Yandle, took the challenge to raise awareness and funds for ALS to another level as he incorporated a helicopter, glacier water and an entire crew to capture the...

Paul Bissonnette dons Speedo, uses helicopter for Ice Bucket Challenge (video)

It shouldn’t be all that surprising that a person who goes by the nickname BizNasty — a longtime favorite of SoB — would take the Ice Bucket Challenge that has been all over the place of late to a ridiculously absurd level. Bissonnette currently is a free agent, so he has a lot of time […] The post Paul Bissonnette dons Speedo, uses helicopter for Ice Bucket Challenge (video...

Paul Bissonnette uses helicopter for Ice Bucket Challenge

We’ve seen some pretty impressive Ice Bucket Challenges over the last few weeks, as professional athletes have employed Zambonis, Gatorade coolers and more to do their part in raising awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) research. If those were “impressive,” we have no idea what to call what Paul Bissonnette just did. The current free agent was recently challenged...

Arizona Coyotes prospect profile: Max Domi

The Coyotes may live and die by the young swords this season, with Brandon Gormley and Connor Murphy both expected to crack the top six defensive pairings, as well as guys like Lucas Lessio and Max Domi also possessing good chances to make the team.
