B-Sens sign Bishop

The Binghamton Senators announced today that the club has signed goaltender Ben Bishop to an American Hockey League contract.

Bishop, 25, appeared in three games for the B-Sens last season after he was acquired by their National Hockey League affiliate, the Ottawa Senators, from the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 26. In those three games Bishop posted a 2-1-0 record with a 2.35 goals-against average.

Prior to the trade, he had spent the 2011-12 season with the Peoria Rivermen, the Blues’ AHL affiliate, where he posted a record of 24-14-0 in 38 games, including a league-leading six shutouts.

The 6-foot-7, 215-pound native of Denver was named the most valuable player of the 2012 AHL All-Star Game after stopping 10 of 11 shots in the third period and four of four attempts in the shootout to help lead the Western Conference to an 8-7 victory. He was also named Reebok Top Goaltender during the All-Star Classic’s skills competition.

Bishop has appeared in 162 career AHL games with Binghamton and Peoria, posting an 83-65-8 record with nine shutouts, a 2.59 goals-against average and .911 save percentage.
