Bulletin: Senators acquire goaltender Ben Bishop from St. Louis for a second-round draft pick
OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has acquired goaltender Ben Bishop from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Ottawa’s second-round draft pick in the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

Bishop, 25, has spent the entire 2011-12 season with the Peoria Rivermen, the Blues’ American Hockey League affiliate. Bishop has a record of 24-14-0 in 38 games with the Rivermen, posting a league-leading six shutouts, a 2.26 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. Bishop's 24 wins are also tied for the AHL lead.

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

Bishop has appeared in 13 career NHL games, all with St. Louis, posting a 4-5-1 record with one shutout, a 2.83 goals-against-average and .893 save percentage. He was drafted by the Blues in the third round (85th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

The Senators next see action later today, when they host the New York Islanders at 5 p.m.
