Fantasia is running wild!
The St. Louis Blues have dealt goaltender Ben Bishop to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a 2nd round selection in the 2013 entry draft.
The Senators have signed Bishop to a one-year, one-way contract.
The 25-year-old netminder has put up exceptional numbers with the American Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen this season.
The Blues were forced into making a decision on the 25-year-old netminder due to the team's crowded crease. With All-Star Brian Elliott and 2010-11 starter Jaroslav Halak still under contract, the 6'7" Bishop was in danger of becoming a Group 6 unrestricted free agent this off-season.
Bishop was originally drafted in the third round (85th overall) by the Blues at the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
The Denver, Colorado native hasn't played an NHL game since March 7 of last year.
Good deal for Ottawa. I like Bishop's game and He's a decent backup.
