Bishai is most remembered for a fight on Atlanta Thrashers player Serge Aubin on February 11, 2004.

Bishai got to his feet and continued to trade punches with Aubin, while stunned Thrashers looked on unsure what to do. Oilers coach Craig MacTavish commented on that fight and said, "..As many years as I"ve been in the game, I"ve never seen a guy fighting standing up in the opposition"s bench..That"s like diving into somebody else"s foxhole.".
