The Ottawa Senators moved quickly to add insurance with Craig Anderson out of the lineup, trading a second round draft pick in 2013 for St.Louis Blues prospect Ben Bishop.

Bishop has been among the best goalies in the American Hockey League this season and joins the Senators less than a week after Anderson underwent surgery for a severed tendon in his right hand. The 26-year-old Bishop, now the tallest goalie in the NHL at six foot seven, could offer a longer-term solution in the Senators net, but will be pressured by Robin Lehner for time.

The trade clearly gives Jake Allen a great chance in Peoria, and he’ll have to respond with some solid goaltending down the stretch. Allen, a 2011 AHL All-Star, is capable of being a starter, and is tabbed as the future goaltender with the Blues organization.
