For the past fewseasons it seemed like Ben Bishop was going to be the number one guy between the pipes in Tampa Bay for a very long time, but that all changed when the Lightning dealt the 30-year-old goalie to the Los Angeles Kings a few days before the trade deadline last season.

Bishop went on to play just seven games in a Kings uniform during the 2016-17 season before getting traded once again, this time to the Dallas Stars. Dallas didn’t waste any time signing Bishop to a new contract, as he inked a six-year, $29.5 million contract with the Stars just three days after he was acquired from the Kings.

On Thursday, artist David Gunnarsson unveiled Bishop’s cage he plans on rocking with the Stars this season and it’s pretty sweet.

Similar to the one he had with the Kings, Bishop’s Stars mask will glow-in-the-dark and it’s going to look very sharp when he hits the ice.

It looks like Bishop is going to start making glow-in-the-dark masks his new thing, while his former teammate Andrei Vasilevskiy will be rocking something similar in Tampa Bay, but his mask is going to change colours based on temperature rather than glow-in-the-dark.

There are still a few NHL goalies who haven’t unveiled their new masks just yet and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.
