Ben Bishop Signs Extension With Lightning

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goaltender Ben Bishop to a two-year contract extension today, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced.

Bishop, 6-foot-7, 214 pounds, has played in six games with the Lightning after being acquired from the Ottawa Senators at the April 3 trade deadline.  He has posted a 2-3-0 record with a .916 save percentage and a 3.21 goals-against average. Bishop made his Bolts debut on April 4 at Carolina, stopping all 45 shots he faced for a shutout. He was the second goalie in franchise history to post a shutout in his Lightning debut (Dwayne Roloson, January 4, 2011) and tied the franchise record for most saves in a shutout (Daren Puppa, November 27, 1995).  He has played in a total of 19 games this season with Tampa Bay and Ottawa, recording a 10-8-0 record with a .920 save percentage, 2.68 goals-against average and two shutouts.

Can A Goalie Be Too Big?

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

Is is possible a goaltender can be too tall? At what point does a big guy just not have the agility to be effective? Ben Bishop of the Ottawa Senators is the tallest goaltender to play in the NHL at 6-foot-7. Talking to scouts, other goaltenders and goaltending coaches, there was concern about the size of a 5-hole on a big goaltender and the fact is, it just takes longer for a taller guy to collapse to the ice and close that 5-hole. Bishop said that’s something he has worked on and improved. Senators coach Paul MacLean doesn’t think a goaltender can be too big. “I look at (Bishop) and say, ‘Where’s the net?’ That’s not a bad thing.”

Blues Send Goalie Ben Bishop To Ottawa

via John Shannon tweet,

As per @SunGarrioch, the Blues have indeed traded Ben Bishop to Ottawa

note:  I would have pointed to Garrioch, but for some reason he has blocked me.

added 11:33am, via Elliotte Friedman tweet,

Bishop must play at least 30 minutes in 17 games, or he will be unrestricted. Even if he doesn’t re-sign, worthy move for Bryan Murray.

added 11:36am, via Jeremy Rutherford tweet,

The compensation for Bishop will be a draft pick, as high as a second-round pick.

added 11:40am, via Bob McKenzie tweet,

Before trading G Ben Bishop to OTT for a 2013 2nd rd pick, STL signed him to a one-year, one-way contract.

That means the 30 minutes in 17 games is tossed out the door.

added 12:02pm, via McKenzie tweet,

Correction: Bishop’s new one-year, one-way deal done with OTT, not St. Louis.
