I know, I know. Biznasty has left the desert. Sorry it’s hard to move on, guys.
For those who want to keep up with what’s been going on in the life of “everyone’s favorite fourth line plug”, though, here are a couple of notable news stories about the guy-
According to Rumors, the Biz might be staying in North America, after all
THANK. GOD. Amirite? According to My NHL Trade Rumors, there are a couple of teams willing to pick up the former Coyotes fourth liner. Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona tweeted this out earlier this week:
Of course, I think that the Wild are most likely to win this one. They seem to have an uncanny knack for picking up everyone’s favorite player on another team, and bringing him onto their roster. From Zach Parise and Ilya Bryzgalov to Il Niño and Ryan Suter, it seems only natural that Minnesota would steal Arizona’s dearly beloved, too.*
*I’m only kind of kidding about this.
With just over a month left until the first game of the NHL preseason, it seems only logical that should this kind of trade be in place, fans will be hearing about it sooner rather than later- so keep your ears open.
Being an unsigned UFA hasn’t stopped the force that is Biznasty’s social network presence, though.
Fans would probably riot if Paul Bissonnette went quiet on social media. He’s become almost a staple in practically every casual hockey fan’s Twitter and Instagram feeds- and despite remaining unsigned a month after free agency began, the former enforcer has continued to crank out gold. A couple of notable pictures and trolls that BizNasty2.0 has put out for the world to experience:
He’s not just using his social media presence for laughs, though.
Bissonnette may no longer be a Coyote, but he still plans on using his residual star power for good.
Since July 29th, the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” has raised millions of dollars for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. The disease- among other fatal symptoms- is a progressive atrophy of a victim’s muscles. This is caused by the disintegration of one’s motor neurons, which control a person’s movements. The disease currently has no known cure, as there has been no treatment proven to either halt or reverse symptoms.
The Ice Bucket Challenge, which started in the athletic community, has gone viral. The Challenge is conducted on a nomination basis, where nominees record videos of themselves dumping buckets of ice on their heads. They then nominate a number of their friends to take the challenge as well, recording a similar video and posting it to social media. The idea is to raise awareness for ALS through the viral spread of the challenge.
“Biznasty” took the challenge to whole new heights, though. Just yesterday, the former desert dog posted this video to the web:
After topping pretty much every other ice-dumping video on the planet, Bissonnette then challenged Lebron James, Aaron Rodgers, and Russell Wilson.
Of course, if you’d like to help him out, here’s all three athletes’ Twitter handles-

Biznasty, you rock. Please come back.
