Paul Bissonnette has agreed to terms with the AHL Portland Pirates.

The Pirates are affiliated with the Arizona Coyotes. Bissonnette became an unrestricted free agent this summer after Arizona passed on re-signing him, but he wasn't able to secure a contract with a different NHL club. "He's a good man," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "It's just the way the league's going right now. But I love his enthusiasm. He's jumping in. He wants to work his way back in. I had the chance to talk to him the other night, and he's enthused. The other thing (that) was good to see (was) his teammates here were really happy for him, so we'll see where it goes."

Paul Bissonnette has an out-clause with the Cardiff Devils.

That means that Bissonnette might still end up playing with a different team in 2014-15. There was reportedly some interest in him from NHL teams over the summer and he attended the St. Louis Blues' training camp, but he obviously never ended up coming to terms with an NHL club.

Paul Bissonnette has signed with the Cardiff Devils of the Elite Ice Hockey League.

In case you're not familiar with the location of Cardiff, it's worth clarifying that the EIHL operates in the United Kingdom.

Bissonnette has 22 points and 340 penalty minutes in 202 career NHL games.

The St. Louis Blues released Paul Bissonnette from his professional tryout on Saturday.

The 29-year-old generates nice but not otherworldly PIM (340 in 202 career NHL games) and doesn't do enough of anything else to be worthy of your fantasy attention, even if he can make an NHL squad.

The St. Louis Blues have extended a training camp tryout offer to Paul Bissonnette.

Bissonnette is a physical depth forward that, to be honest, might be better known for as a Twitter personality than a hockey player. That's not to suggest that Bissonnette has no value on the ice though. He's a physical forward that can fit in on the fourth line and if he gets into a situation where he's playing regularly, then he'd be a decent source of penalty minutes in fantasy leagues.

Washington, Minnesota and Pittsburgh are reportedly in the running to sign tough guy Paul Bissonnette, according to an NHL source.

The Capitals are believed to be the favorite to sign him. Bissonnette appeared in 39 games with the Coyotes last season, where he picked up eight points and 53 penalty minutes.

According to his agent, the Washington Capitals are among a handful of teams potentially interested in acquiring the services of Paul Bissonnette.

Mark Guy, Bissonnette's representative, confirms his client is seeking a larger role than the one he has traditionally owned in the NHL, saying "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. He wants to be in a position where he can compete for a solid fourth-line position and be a great team guy." It may be a surprise to hear that the enforcer is actually a highly-rated contributor by proponents of advanced stats and would likely serve as a useful player if assigned a regular shift. For those in leagues that reward penalty minutes, consistent ice time could make Bissonnette roster-worthy.

Phoenix forward Paul Bissonnette scored only his second goal of the season in the Coyotes' 4-2 loss to the visiting St. Louis Blues Sunday night.
