ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues recalled goaltender Ben Bishop from Peoria of the AHL as insurance for Jaroslav Halak, who was listed as day to day with an upper body injury.

The 24-year-old Bishop was a third-round pick in the 2005 Entry draft. In 26 games with Peoria he's 13-11-1 with a 2.59 goals-against average and two shutouts.

Bishop appeared in six games with the Blues in 2008-09 and has a career record of 1-1-1 with a 2.94 GAA.
