Coyotes Paul Bissonnette and Antoine Vermette will be playing in "Le Tournée des Joueurs."
Some Professional hockey players have decided to spend the lock out in Europe or Russia. Others are staying in their hometowns to practice. A few decided to fly up to Canada to play in a series known as "Le Tournée des Joueurs" or "The Players Tour."
With a name like that you know that the tour isn't going to come anywhere near Phoenix, however Coyotes forward Paul Bissonnette made this story a lot more interesting today when he tweeted he will be partaking in the tour, along with Coyotes forward Antoine Vermette.
Both players will be playing for Team Quebec, Vermette as a forward, Bissonnette interestingly enough as a defenseman. BizNasty has apparently spent time as a defenseman, and according to Colby Armstrong he was a pretty good one too.
The first game of the series featured Team Montreal beating Team Quebec 7-4 so hopefully the addition of two Coyotes will help Quebec in the coming game.
