Dallas Stars sign goalie Ben Bishop to 6-year, $29.5M deal

FRISCO, Texas (AP) The Dallas Stars have locked up a goalie with Stanley Cup Final experience in hopes of solving one of their biggest problems.

Ben Bishop signed a six-year, $29.5 million deal with the Stars, whose announcement Friday came only three days after the team acquired rights to the 30-year-old goalie from the Los Angeles Kings. Dallas gave up a fourth-round pick in next month's NHL draft.

"I've been fortunate enough to play a few years in the league, and now it's about going somewhere you think you have a chance to win, and a good city," said Bishop, who was set to be an unrestricted free agent had Dallas not signed him before July 1. "Dallas has both."
