He made his first career NHL start on Oct. 25, collecting his first win after defeating Florida 4-0 in a combined shutout with goaltender Marek Schwarz.

Bishop has played in a total of three games with the Blues this season, posting a 1-0-1 record, a 2.41 goals against average and a .917% save percentage. He has also played in four games this season with the Rivermen, registering a 2-2-0 record, a .907% save percentage along with a 2.44 goal against average.

Bishop was originally St. Louis' third round selection, 85th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He spent three years at Chaminade High School in St. Louis before joining the Texas Tornado of the North American Hockey League following his junior year.
