Coming out of exit interviews today was news about Ben Bishop's injuries. He suffered a torn ligament in his wrist in January and a dislocated elbow on April 8. While the elbow was healing and Bishop was looking towards playing in Game 6 if there was one, that was not to be. (Sorry.)
After Bishop suffered dislocated elbow on April 8, he said Stamkos gave him a hug and Bishop almost started crying, knew he'd miss playoffs— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) April 24, 2014
However we did learn more details about the nagging wrist injury we all knew was bothering him throughout the second half of the season.
Ben Bishop will undergo surgery on his right wrist after suffering torn ligaments in January #TBLightning— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) April 24, 2014
Bishop said his recovery is scheduled to be 3-4 months, expects to be ready for the start of training camp in September #TBLightning— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) April 24, 2014
If they perform the surgery next week as proposed, a four month recovery would have him fully healed by the end of August. Bishop will, of course, be able to do other conditioning work in the meantime, but this timetable is something to keep an eye on when as the offseason progresses.
