Goaltender Ben Bishop, who has been with the St. Louis Blues organization since he was drafted in 2005, could very well be on the move as the NHL trade deadline approaches. Ever since the Blues traded for Jaroslav Halak in the summer of 2010 and signed Brian Elliott to a contract extension in January, Bishop has looked to be the odd one out in the team's plans.
He is currently playing with the Blues' AHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen. In his fifth season with the team, he has a 24-13 record with a .928 save percentage and a 2.26 GAA. He has played 13 games with St. Louis in his career, posting a 4-5-1 record with a .899 save percentage and a 2.76 GAA.
Bishop will be a restricted free agent this summer and currently is on an NHL contract with a $600,000 salary. If the Blues choose not to keep him, there are some teams that would like to have him as a backup, or even as a part of their AHL team.
Here are seven possible landing spots for Ben Bishop.
