The Canucks signed Richard Bachman to a two-year extension.

Bachman, 30, spent all of the 2018 season in Utica (AHL) where he went 13-13-0 with a 2.98 GAA and .902 SV%. Bachman is the fourth goalie on the Canucks’ depth chart behind Jacob Markstrom, Anders Nilsson and Thatcher Demko, so he isn’t expected to see any NHL action in 2019, barring something unforeseen.

The Oilers have reassigned Richard Bachman to Oklahoma City (AHL).

Bachman made 25 saves on 27 shots in the Oilers win over the Kings last night and has won three in a row with a 1.00 GAA, .965 SV% and one shutout, but the Oilers had to send him down in order to make room for Laurent Brossoit, who has been recalled and will make his NHL debut on Thursday.

Bachman gets the nod against the Oilers.

Bachman allowed one goal on 30 shots in the Oilers win in Colorado on March 30th. He missed the last three games after there was a death in his family, but he will be back in tonight vs. the Kings. Bachman has won his last two games while stopping 58 of 59 shots (.983 SV%). Tonight he will take on an L.A team still fighting for a playoff spot—the Kings are 5-2-1 in their last eight games.

Bachman will start his second straight game.

Bachman stopped all 29 shots that he faced in the Oilers 4-0 shutout win over the Stars on Friday. It was a surprising performance to say the least, but it certainly earned him the nod tonight vs. the Avalanche. Colorado ranks 16th in the NHL in goals scored on home ice this season.
