Bishop wins in shootout, named AHL All-Star MVP

No matter what happens to Ben Bishop this season, and in the rest of his hockey career, he and the St. Louis Blues organization can look back on the 2012 AHL All-Star Weekend with pride and satisfaction.

Bishop took another big step towards establishing himself as the dominant goaltender in the AHL by turning aside ten of 11 shots by the Eastern Conference All-Stars during the third period of Monday's AHL All-Star game, then stopping all four shots he faced in the shootout to steal a come-from-behind 8-7 win for the Western Conference All-Stars.

Pro hockey's tallest goaltender earned the All-Star Most Valuable Player award for his efforts, to go along with being named the Top Goaltender in Sunday's skills competition.

Bishop was not the only Blues' prospect to stand out in Monday's All-Star Game. Rookie blueliner Cade Fairchild was honored with starting on defense for the Western Conference, and also assisted on Darren Haydar's first period tally that (briefly) tied the game at 2-all.

Veteran forward T.J. Hensick showed why he is one of the top scorers in the AHL with a goal and an assist in the game, and by beating Eastern Conference goalie Tyson Sexsmith with the very first shot in the shootout.
