Played in NHL All-Star Game (1975, 1978)
Suspended by NHL for first 10 games of 1982-83 season for assault on referee Andy Van Hellemond, April 25, 1982. Missed majority of 1982-83 due to finger injury vs. NY Islanders (November 18, 1982) and knee injury vs. Vancouver, December 31, 1982.
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.
