Stars' Ben Bishop: Won't return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (knee) won't play in 2020-21.

Bishop has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee all season in hopes of returning to action at some point in 2020-21, but the Stars have decided to shut him down for the year so he can focus on returning to full health for the 2021-22 campaign. Anton Khudobin and Jake Oettinger will continue to shoulder the load in goal as Dallas pushes for a playoff spot over the final month of the season.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Hopes to return in two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stars GM Jim Nill said Monday that Bishop (knee) is two weeks from returning to the lineup, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

Bishop has been skating with the taxi squad for the last few days, and the Stars are encouraged enough with his progress to stamp a timetable on his return. It appears April 26 is the hopeful return date for Bishop. The 34-year-old was fantastic last year with a .920 save percentage and a 21-16-4 record, though Anton Khudobin -- who has been solid this year -- was the playoff hero.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Expected to skate with taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (knee) is expected to get on the ice with the Stars' taxi squad Saturday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

This is clearly a step in the right direction for Bishop, but he'll undoubtedly need to log a number of full practices with the main group before being cleared for game action. The veteran netminder has yet to play this season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee Oct. 21.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Missing 3-5 more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (knee) has skated but remains 3-to-5 weeks away from his return to the lineup, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.

Bishop's previous timeline had him out until early April, so this is just a smaller adjustment to that plan. The Stars have gotten quality goaltending out of Anton Khudobin and Jake Oettinger in Bishop's absence -- the team has allowed just 2.56 goals per game. There will be no need to rush Bishop back, but he should provide solid results in the crease when he's ready.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Out until April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per general manager Jim Nill, Bishop (knee) has done some light skating, but he's still at least 4-6 weeks away from making his season debut, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

Bishop was originally expected to be ready to return in mid-March after undergoing knee surgery in late October, but that's clearly no longer on the table. The next step in the 34-year-old backstop's recovery will involve a return to practice with his teammates, so check back for another update on his status once that occurs.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Likely out until mid-March
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop underwent right knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus Oct. 21. and is expected to be sidelined until mid-March.

Bishop appeared in just three games for the Stars last postseason due to ungoing issues related to the knee surgery he underwent in May, so it sounds like an additional procedure was required following Dallas' elimination from the Stanley Cup Finals to fully address his injured knee heading into the 2020-21 campaign. Although no firm start date for next season has been established, Bishop will almost certainly miss the beginning of the campaign at a minimum considering he's not expected to be ready to rock until mid-March at the earliest. That means more playing time for Anton Khudobin, who could emerge as the Stars' true No. 1 netminder after playing well in a workhorse role during the 2019-20 playoffs.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Dealt with knee issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop underwent knee surgery in May, which affected his availability for the playoffs, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Bishop ended up ceding the No. 1 job to Anton Khudobin during the Stars' lengthy playoff run, appearing in just three games during the postseason due to his ongoing knee issues. He is, however, fully expected to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign, and Anton Khudobin is set to hit the market as an unrestricted free agent, so Bishop's job as Dallas' starter appears to be fully secure. The 33-year-old netminder put together another impressive regular season in 2019-20, finishing the year with a 21-16-4 record to go with a 2.50 GAA and .920 save percentage.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Game 6 against Tampa Bay on Monday, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

Even if healthy, Bishop would likely be hard-pressed to steal the No. 1 job away from Anton Khudobin, especially considering he went 1-6-0 with a 4.54 GAA in his previous seven appearances. Heading into next season, Bishop should reclaim the starting job, though he may need to split minutes with Khudobin.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Won't dress for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's must-win Game 5 versus the Lightning, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Even if the Stars are able to stave off elimination Saturday, it doesn't appear as though Dallas is expecting to have Bishop back this postseason. The 33-year-old backstop is one of the best in the business when healthy, but concerns surrounding his health will definitely play into his perceived value heading into next year's fantasy drafts.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) is still considered unfit to play ahead of Friday's Game 4 against the Lightning, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

Bishop has been sidelined for over three weeks with his undisclosed issue and at this point it seems likely that he won't return this postseason. Anton Khudobin will continue to lead the way in goal for the Stars with Jake Oettinger serving as his backup.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) remains unfit and won't be available against the Lightning for Game 3 on Wednesday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Bishop has played in just one of the Stars' previous 18 contests due to his undisclosed injury. Even if healthy, it would take a pretty poor outing from Anton Khudobin to be unseated as the preferred option between the pipes for Dallas. At this point, fantasy players shouldn't expect Bishop to play anytime soon and should be focusing on next season when it comes to the netminder.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Still sidelined for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) will not be available against Tampa Bay for Game 2 on Monday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

While not officially confirmed by coach Rick Bowness, Bishop's continued absence all but guarantees Anton Khudobin will be between the pipes for Game 2. Even if healthy, Bishop would be hard-pressed to overtake Khudobin for the starting job with how well the backup has fared this postseason. Heading into next season, the two netminders could end up splitting the crease, though that would require Dallas to re-sign Khudobin.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Unavailable for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) will not suit up for Saturday's Game 1 showdown with the Lightning, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

Bishop is still considered day-to-day but he has been getting some reps in during practice. It's unclear if he'll be available during the Stanley Cup finals, but with Games 4 and 5 coming on back-to-back nights, he may get the starting nod at some point this series.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Missing more action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) is still considered unfit to play ahead of Monday's Game 5 showdown against Vegas, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Although Bishop continues to practice with the team, coach Rick Bowness reiterated that his goaltender isn't healthy enough to start or even back up. Monday's game will mark the seventh straight game that Bishop has missed, and Jake Oettinger will continue to serve as Anton Khudobin's backup until Bishop is healthy to return.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) is still considered unfit to play ahead of Saturday's Game 4 versus Vegas, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Bishop will miss a sixth straight game Saturday and remains without a timetable for his return. Jake Oettinger will continue to serve as Anton Khudobin's backup until Bishop is given the green light.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Remains shelved
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) continues to be unfit to play and won't be available against the Golden Knights for Game 3 on Thursday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

At this point, it feels safe to assume that Bishop reaggravated whatever is bothering him in his brief Game 5 clash with Colorado. Even if the netminder is cleared to return at some point, it would be somewhat surprising to see the Stars deviate from using Anton Khudobin between the pipes.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Unavailable for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) has been deemed "unfit to play" in Tuesday's Game 2 versus Vegas, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.

There's no clear timeline for Bishop to return to the lineup, but Anton Khudobin is locked into the starting role regardless of Bishop's status.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) is unfit to play in Sunday's Game 1 against the Golden Knights, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

The 33-year-old missed the past two games after being unfit to play in the last round against Colorado, and it's unclear if he reaggravated his injury in Game 5. It's unclear when Bishop could potentially return to action, but in his stead, look for Anton Khudobin to draw the start with Jake Oettinger handling backup duties.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Remains unfit to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) will not be in action for Game 7 against Colorado on Friday, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

It's unclear if Bishop was rushed back into action too soon or if he reaggravated his injury in Game 5, but his brief appearance in which he gave up four goals on 19 shots before getting the hook may be his last outing of the season if Dallas loses Thursday. In his stead, Anton Khudobin will continue to defend the cage for the Stars.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Won't dress for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop (undisclosed) was deemed unfit to play in Wednesday's Game 6 against Colorado, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

The specifics of the absence remain unclear, as the veteran was pulled in Monday's Game 5 after allowing four goals on 19 shots. Anton Khudobin will draw the start for the pivotal game, with Jake Oettinger taking over backup duties. Bishop's next chance to suit up will either be in Friday's Game 7 or the Conference Finals.
