Ben Bishop back with the Stars


Having announced his retirement from competition last December, former goaltender Ben Bishop will return to the Dallas Stars as player development coordinator. 

Several sources said Monday, including the daily “Dallas Morning News” which quoted Chief Executive Jim Nill.

Bishop pulled out due to a degenerative knee problem after an unsuccessful return to play attempt. In addition, the Buffalo Sabers acquired his player contract in June, with one year remaining, at a salary of $3.5 million.

The 35-year-old did not play in the National League in 2021-2022, having played a game with the Stars school club. He has scored 222 wins in 413 career regular season games, playing for five teams.
