Bishop's Legacy

During the period from 2008 to 2020, Ben Bishop distinguished himself as one of the NHL's premier goaltenders. His exceptional performances for teams such as the Tampa Bay Lightning and Dallas Stars made him a household name. His time with the Dallas Stars, which culminated in a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, remains one of the most memorable episodes of his career.

Career Highlights



Bishop's career in the NHL was marked by impressive stats. The towering 6-foot-7 goaltender managed to secure a commendable record of 222-128, boasting a .921 save percentage and an average of 2.32 GAA. The pinnacle of his career was arguably the 2018-19 season with the Stars. However, despite a fruitful season, his professional journey ended prematurely due to injuries.


Transition into a New Role



Post-retirement, Bishop chose to stay in Dallas, marking the start of a new chapter in his career. The Dallas Stars recently announced via Twitter that Bishop will be transitioning into a player development coordinator role within the organization.


Continuing Contribution to the Dallas Stars



Given the promising prospects and talented NHL roster of the Dallas Stars, Bishop's new role will be crucial as the team aspires to revisit the Stanley Cup Finals. His guidance will be particularly valuable for Jake Oettinger, who is poised to step up his game. Bishop's return to the organization is indeed a significant boost.
