Hawks eyed Bissonnette
TheFourthPeriod.com

Unrestricted free agent forward Paul Bissonnette has attracted the interest of several teams this off-season, and continues to weigh his options as the summer carries on.

Bissonnette's agent, Mark Guy, told the Washington Post that "five to six" teams, including the Capitals, are eyeing his client.

"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," Guy told the Post last Friday. "He wants to be in a position where he can compete for a solid fourth-line position and be a great team guy. He wants to be in an organization where there's a chance to win, as most guys do, and looking forward to showing how hard he's worked to improve his skill level and skating over the last couple years."

In addition to the Capitals, TFP has learned the Chicago Blackhawks also expressed an interest in Bissonnette last month.

It's unclear, at this point, if Chicago is still an option for the 29-year-old, as the Hawks are roughly $1.32 million over the salary cap.

Bissonnette is coming of a two-year, $1.475 million contract. His contract demands are unknown, though it's believed he's in the market for a multi-year deal worth around the same $750,000 annual salary he earned last season.
