That's all she wrote. This is how National Hockey League veteran Paul Bissonnette announced that he was hanging up the skates on Thursday. 

Biznasty released a statement on his personal Instagram, letting fans knows of his decision.

Bissonnette was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the fourth round of the 2011 draft and played a total of 202 games in the NHL over six seasons, mostly with the Coyotes. He got into 52 fights, racked up 340 penalty minutes, and was able to score seven goals throughout his career. 

He was of course best known in the hockey community for his personality and social media presence. He has always been very candid on Twitter and used his sense of humour to make light on different issues. Just like he did in his announcement, using a picture of him falling down during a game for the Coyotes. A brilliant sense of humour. 

This is the kick off to a new career for Bissonnette who will become a Coyotes ambassador and a radio analyst.

All the best to Biznasty!
