Noon Player Notes (Feb 8)
An undisclosed injury kept Dallas Stars keeper Ben Bishop out of the lineup on Thursday night against the Nashville Predators, but there was no real specific update on what the injury is. The team called up Landon Bow to back-up Anton Khudobin for the game and for now, Bishop is listed as day-to-day, hopeful that whatever it was will pass before Saturday's game in Arizona.
This injury means that Clayton doesn't have a healthy goalie on his roster, which definitely doesn't help his cause. Bishop is his 1st round pick this year and he has been okay, but not 1st round worthy, ranking only 75th in pool scoring with 45 points in 33 appearances this year. That's good enough for the end of the 3rd round, if we were redrafting today. Still, Clayton's team is in the mix for the money and needs these starts.
