Paul Bissonnette will be back with the Reign for a third season, as first reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie on Saturday.
My good pal @BizNasty2point0 has signed with the AHL Ontario Reign, farm team of LAK. Congrats, Biz. Can't keep a good (1985 born) man down.

The organization has yet to officially announce the signing.
Bissonnette, 31, was limited to 35 out of 68 regular season due to various injuries last season and totaled two goals, one assist and 51 PIM. The rugged role player dressed in all 13 playoff games (1-1=2) and scored his first pro postseason goal.
He took to Twitter shortly after McKenzie noted the news.
