Former UMaine star Bishop traded to Kings

Doyle BarkerFeb 28, 2017

Quick made 32 saves in a 4-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks but getting Bishop is an insurance move in case Quick can't stay healthy.

While the former King's record was subpar at best, won 23 and lost 20 games, but did accumulate a.913 save percentage and allowed only an average of 2.13 goals per game.

The Kings gave up backup goaltender Peter Budaj, 19-year-old defensive prospect Erik Cernak (who was a second-round draft pick), a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft and a conditional pick for 2017 that could turn into a second-rounder depending on how far LA goes in the playoffs.

Tampa Bay will retain 20 percent of the prorated remainder of Bishop's $5.95 million salary, according to the Kings' official team site.

Bishop had been the subject of trade rumours since losing his starting job to Andrei Vasilevskiy in the 2016 playoffs.

The Kings now trail the St. Louis Blues by 3 points for the second Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

"Somebody like Helene (Elliott of the Los Angeles Times) recognizes that Jonathan Quick is an emotional leader".

"I also think that when you've been out this long that I think you're going to ride this like on a ratio on the past of playing John 70 games, I think that's totally impractical". The 34-year-old Budaj, who started the year third on the team's depth chart, played well for Los Angeles with a 2.12 goal-against average and.917 save percentage to go along with seven shutouts in 53 games. Like Bishop, he will become an unrestricted free-agent this summer. "Badminton? If I thought it was badminton, I'd tell Jeff not to fight Kesler, but in hockey we'd say it might happen once in a while".
