Ben Bishop turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The victory was his first of the season and his first as a member of the Dallas Stars. This was his first game back between the pipes since he was cut open by a puck during a game last Friday. He now has a 1-0-0 record with a 1.15 goals-against-average and a .955 save percentage this season. He'll continue to be a good number one goalie in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 10 - 11:52 PM

Ben Bishop is expected to start Tuesday's game against Detroit.

Bishop was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate. His debut with the Stars on Friday was cut short after a puck caused a gash over his eye. This will be his first appearance since the incident. Bishop had 19 saves on 19 shots against Vegas before his exit.
Oct 10 - 12:29 PM

Ben Bishop is okay after leaving Friday's game in the third period.

Bishop left the contest because he took a puck to his mask. He needed stitches, but he will be available Saturday if needed. That being said, the plan was to start Kari Lehtonen anyways so Bishop will begin the contest on the bench.
Oct 7 - 1:44 PM

Ben Bishop didn't finish Friday's game against Vegas, but afterward coach Ken Hitchcock said the goaltender is fine.

Bishop left the match in the third period after he took a puck to his mask and was cut on the play. He got back to the bench briefly before returning to the locker room. Kari Lehtonen permitted both goals by the Golden Knights in a losing relief effort. If Bishop is fine then it wouldn't be surprising to see him back in goal for Saturday's match against St. Louis.
Oct 6 - 11:55 PM

Ben Bishop had to leave Friday's game against Vegas for repairs after he was cut by a shot to his mask.

It's unclear at this time if the puck found a hole or if his mask cut him. Bishop stopped all 19 shots he faced in 43:58 of playing time before coming out of the crease. He returned to the bench briefly, but Kari Lehtonen finished the game. Lehtonen permitted two goals on 11 shots in relief in a 2-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

Look for Ben Bishop to play between the pipes on Friday.

The Stars signed Bishop to a six-year, $29.5 million contract over the summer in the hopes that he would stabilize their goaltending situation. Bishop is coming off a rough campaign, but he finished second in Vezina voting in 2015-16. Still, the Stars are questionable defensively, making Bishop something of a risk for fantasy owners.
Oct 6 - 12:08 PM

Ben Bishop allowed five goals on 22 shots in the Stars' 5-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

Bishop is coming off a disappointing 2016-2017 season, splitting time with the Lightning and Kings and is determined to bounce back with his new club. He is a proven number one goalie in the NHL but did not have the best preseason, letting in 12 goals in his three appearances. With the alternative in net being Kari Lehtonen, Bishop should get the majority of starts as he looks to carry the Stars into the playoffs. If he is able to channel his 2015-2016 season that saw him earn a Vezina Trophy nomination, he should be a solid fantasy option in all leagues.
Sep 30 - 11:03 PM

Ben Bishop is ready to bounce back with Dallas following a disappointing 2016-17 season.

"It was a frustrating season," Bishop said. "I wanted to play and we were kind of splitting and going back and forth. And it was just, it had been going so well the last couple of years going to the finals, and the conference finals, and then all of a sudden changing it up. And not making the playoffs was kind of frustrating for me and I think for everybody." He added that he has always tried to wipe the slate clean after each campaign and he will do that again with the upcoming season on the horizon. It helps Bishop work for his success and the Stars should be a good fit for him.
