Kings announce cuts, including BizNasty from his PTO


The Los Angeles Kings reduced their training camp roster to 34 players on Saturday, kicking 18 out of the mix. The biggest name, at least from a “social media impact” standpoint was Paul Bissonnette, aka “BizNasty.”

Here is the full list, via the Kings:

Assigned to Ontario (AHL):

Justin Auger – RW
Patrik Bartosak – G
Jonny Brodzinski – C
Nic Dowd – C
Nick Ebert – D
Kevin Gravel – D
Adrian Kempe – LW
Maxim Kitsyn – LW
Zachary Leslie – D
Alex Lintuniemi – D
Kurtis MacDermid – D
Alex Roach – D
Scott Sabourin – RW
Valentin Zykov – RW

Released from Pro Tryout:

Sean Backman – RW
Paul Bissonnette – LW
Ryan Horvat – LW
Kevin Raine – D

It sounds like Bissonnette and other PTO options may also play in the AHL:

The biggest pros from a hypothetical call-up would be 1) wacky tweets and 2) glorious fight photos like this post’s main image.
