20 Comments

You can always count on Paul Bissonnette to take things to the next level whether it’s through his Twitter or Instagram feed.

Well… he’s done it again. This time with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:


Bissonnette, who is currently an unrestricted free agent after spending five seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes, calls out Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers and Super Bowl champion, Russell Wilson in the video.

Rodgers was quick to offer his critique:

Perhaps if he can’t land another NHL contract, a movie career is the next logical step for Bissonnette.

Bissonnette is just the latest NHLer to take the challenge, earlier this month Penguins captain, Sidney Crosby joined in.

Pete Frates is credited with starting the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. Frates was diagnosed with the progressive neurological disease, which slowly affects those suffering from the illness of the use of their muscles, in March 2012. Since then Frates has organized several charity baseball games to raise money for ALS awareness, but its’ his latest creation the Ice Bucket Challenge, which has really taken off.
