He was selected by the Hurricanes in the 2014 NHL Draft (5th round, 127th overall).[1]

Playing career[edit]

Born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Bishop played for Avalon Minor Hockey and later for the St. John's Pennecon Privateers, before joining the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2012. During his four-year tenure with the Screaming Eagles, he made 214 appearances (including 12 playoff games) for the team, scoring 63 goals and assisting on 75 more. He served as team captain in 2014–15 and 2015–16.[2]

Bishop inked a three-year entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL) on April 4, 2016.[3] On October 17, 2018, Bishop was called up to the NHL,[4] and he made his NHL debut on October 20 in a 3–1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.[5] Bishop was reassigned to the Checkers on October 23.[6] Bishop was recalled again on November 29 after Haydn Fleury was placed on injured reserve.[7] He recorded his first career NHL goal on December 7 in a 4–1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.[8] On December 16, Bishop was re-assigned to the Charlotte Checkers.[9]
