Bissonnette returns to Reign for a third season

Paul Bissonnette will be back with the Reign for a third season, as first reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie on Saturday.

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.

Bissonnette has appeared in 202 NHL games and previously played five seasons with the then-Phoenix Coyotes. He was part of the Manchester Monarchs’ 2015 Calder Cup championship team and this will be his third straight season in the AHL.
