St. John’s native Clark Bishop looks like he might be moving ever closer to becoming a full-time big-leaguer
At least it’s pretty clear the 22-year-old centre has become a first call-up option for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes.
For the third time in six weeks, the Hurricanes have promoted Bishop from their American Hockey League team, the Charlotte Checkers. The move came after the Hurricanes made a number of roster moves Thursday, including putting defenceman Haydn Fleury on injured reserve.
Bishop, a fifth-round pick of Carolina from the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, played a total of seven gams in his first two stints with the Hurricanes, with no points, four penalty minutes and a plus-one rating.
With Charlotte, Bishop has three goals, two assists and 20 PIMs, while going plus-one in 12 games.
