Won't play during preseason Bishop (knee), as expected, will not take the ice in any of the Stars' three remaining preseason contests, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.
Impact Considering Bishop was originally slated to start the year on long-term injured reserve, the fact that he isn't going to play in any exhibition contests shouldn't come as a surprise. Dallas already has a logjam of netminders to sort out with Jake Oettinger, Anton Khudobin and Braden Holtby all seeing action during the preseason. Still, once cleared to play, the 34-year-old Bishop should be given every opportunity to reclaim the starting job despite missing the entire 2020-21 season.
