Blues Get Second Round Pick for Bishop

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Sunday the club has acquired a second round draft choice in 2013 from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for goaltender Ben Bishop.

“I would like to thank Ben for his time in our organization,” said Armstrong. “He was a professional on and off the ice for us and we wish him nothing but the best in Ottawa.”

Bishop, 25, has appeared in 38 games with the Peoria Rivermen (American Hockey League) this season and has posted a .928 save percentage, a 2.26 goals against average and six shutouts along with a 24-14-0 record.

The 6’7, 215-pound goaltender was recently named MVP of the 2012 AHL All-Star Game.

A native of St. Louis, Bishop was originally drafted by the Blues in the third round, 85th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He has played in 13 NHL games, registering a 4-5-1 record, one shutout, a .896 save percentage and a 2.83 goals against average.
