(HockeyStL) -- Acquired at the trade deadline, Ben Bishop agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.

Bishop, a third-round pick of the St. Louis Blues in 2005, has posted a 2-3-0 record with a 3.21 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in six games for Tampa Bay since being acquired from the Ottawa Senators. The Lightning traded Cory Conacher in the deal.

In his first start with the Lightning, Bishop became the second goalie in franchise history to post a shutout in his debut with Tampa Bay after stopping all 45 shots faced against the Carolina Hurricanes on April 4.

The 6-foot-7 goalie has posted a 10-8-0 record with a 2.68 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and two shutouts in 19 games played this season with Tampa Bay and Ottawa.
