WHL Second All-Star Team (1982)
Traded to NY Rangers by Buffalo with Buffalo's 10th round choice (Eric Fenton) in 1988 Entry Draft for Mike Donnelly and NY Rangers' 5th round choice (Alexander Mogilny) in 1988 Entry Draft, December 31, 1987. Missed majority of 1988-89 season and entire 1989-90 due to knee surgery. Signed as a free agent by Hartford, September 30, 1990.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
