Lightning sign Bishop two-year, $11.9M extension
« on: August 02, 2014, 05:12:41 PM »
Ben Bishop has extended his stay in Florida.

The Tampa Bay Lightning signed the goaltender to a two-year contract extension on Saturday, keeping him with the team through the 2016-17 season. According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, the deal is worth $11.9 million, with a cap hit of $5.95 million per season.

Bishop posted a 34-14-7 record last season with five shutouts in 63 games with the Lightning. He finished with a .924 save percentage and a 2.23 goals against average and was nominated for the Vezina Trophy.

In 108 career games with the St. Louis Blues, Ottawa Senators and Lightning, Bishop has a record of 55-31-11 with 11 shutouts and a .920 save percentage with a 2.40 GAA.

The Lightning acquired Bishop in exchange for forward Cory Conacher and a fourth-round draft pick in April, 2013.

Bishop is entering the final year of a two-year, $4.6 million contract he signed prior to the 2013-14 season.
