  • Bishop Agrees to Contract with Blues

    St. Louis Native Will Head to Peoria For Remainder of Season
    St. Louis Blues
    Mar 11, 2008, 6:37 PM EDT

    ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today that the team has signed goaltender Ben Bishop. Bishop will join the Peoria Rivermen for the remainder of the season.

    The 6-7, 210-pound netminder just completed his junior season at The University of Maine, recording a 13-18-3 record along with a 2.43 goals against average and a .920 save percentage. He was named Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week three times this season, while being named Hockey East Goalie of the Month for the month of October.

    He led the Black Bears to the Frozen Four last season, compiling a 21-9-2 record along with a 2.14 goals against average and a .923 save percentage.

    Bishop registered a 55-34-7 career record at Maine ranking third all-time in games played (99), second in saves (2,399), fifth in wins (55) and fourth with a 2.29 goals against average.

    He was originally St. Louis’ third round selection, 85th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Bishop 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.

    I am looking forward to seeing how he progresses. Man 6-7 that is a big dude.

      Another message to Marek Schwarz to get his shit together.

      Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                Keith Allain isn't here to screw him up, so there is hope.

                  If he's not careful, he could end up with fissuring there.

                            That was @ the frozen four last year....

                            There's no question that Bishop is big...but Lerg is something like 5-6...so it looks like a bigger difference.

                            That being said, when Bishop is standing in goal, his hips are at the crossbar.
