Among the winnowing pool of unrestricted free agents still seeking deals, former Arizona winger Paul Bissonnette has been fielding interest of varying levels from roughly “five to six teams,” his agent said, including the Washington Capitals.

“Right now he’s just looking for a good organization where he can contribute more than he’s been able to, to date, in the last couple years in Phoenix,” Mark Guy said Friday by telephone. “He wants to be in a position where he can compete for a solid fourth-line position and be a great team guy. He wants to be in an organization where there’s a chance to win, as most guys do, and looking forward to showing how hard he’s worked to improve his skill level and skating over the last couple years.”

After handing $12.2 million in average annual value to three free agents – Matt Niskanen, Brooks Orpik and Justin Peters – on July 1, general manager Brian MacLellan was left with roughly $1.1 million in cap space.
