History

Spent his entire four-year QMJHL career with Val d’Or.  Was invited to Edmonton’s training camp in 2006 and signed immediately after.  Made his NHL debut in a two-game emergency recall straight from junior. 

2007-08: Began the year in Stockton (ECHL) but graduated to the AHL by building on his offensive game from junior. Suffered a hellacious injury when an opposing player accidentally stepped on the back of his leg and sliced him to the bone severing several tendons and ligaments in the process. Injury was initially considered to be possibly career threatening but Bisaillon made a remarkable recovery and played a handful of games at the end of the year.

 

Talent Analysis

Another creative defenseman in the Marc-Andre Bergeron mold but is considered much better defensively. Bisaillon is not tall but is stocky. Perhaps the asset that’s garnered him the most recognition as a pro thus far is his booming slap shot. Plays power play, because of his canon-blast, but is not a defensive liability. Speaks very good English and has an engaging personality; well liked by teammates.
