Dallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop and forward Alexander Radulov have been ruled out for the remainder of the season, the team announced Wednesday.

Bishop, 34, had yet to play in 2020-21 after undergoing surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee on Oct. 21.

"It has been determined that Bishop will not return to play this season, allowing him time to continue his rehabilitation and return to full health for the 2021-22 season," Stars general manager Jim Nill said.

Bishop owns a 222-128-36 record with 33 shutouts, a 2.32 goals-against average and .921 save percentage in 413 NHL games with the St. Louis Blues, Ottawa Senators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Los Angeles Kings and Stars.

Radulov, 34, is in need of surgery on a core muscle injury, Nill said. He is expected to be ready for next season.

Radulov recorded 12 points (four goals, eight assists) in 11 games this season.

He has 346 points (140 goals, 206 assists) in 453 career NHL games with the Nashville Predators, Montreal Canadiens and Stars.
