Lightning sign Vezina Trophy finalist Ben Bishop to 2-year contract extension

TAMPA, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goaltender Ben Bishop to a two-year contract extension.

The team announced the signing Saturday.

Bishop, a Vezina Trophy finalist last season, went 37-14-7 with a 2.23 goals-against-average in 63 games. He set team records for single-season wins and goals-against average.

Bishop has played in 108 games with the Lightning, Ottawa and St. Louis, going 55-31-11 with eight shutouts.

The extension runs through the 2016-17 season.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
