The Ottawa Senators have added to their goalie cupboard after Craig Anderson's kitchen injury, acquiring Ben Bishop from the St. Louis Blues.
According to TSN the Senators are sending a second round draft pick in 2013 to the Blues for the 25-year-old goalie, who has spent the year with their American Hockey League team.
The six foot seven inch tall Bishop has appeared in 13 NHL games with a record of 4-4-1 and one shutout.
He is 24-14-0 in the AHL this season with Peoria, with a 2.26 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage.
The Senators negotiated a one-year, one-way contact with Bishop before the trade according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. He has been set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Ottawa's number one goaltender Craig Anderson is out indefinitely with a severed tendon in his right pinkie after he had an accident cutting frozen chicken at home.
