Oilers Reassign Bachman

News: Richard Bachman was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
Analysis: The move surely wasn't for performance-based reasons, as Richard Bachman has led the Oilers to wins in his last three starts while conceding a total of three goals. He missed some time prior to Tuesday's win over the Kings due to a death in the family, and now he's set to celebrate the miracle of life, as his wife is due to give birth Sunday. With the Oilers' regular season set to end Saturday, assigning Bachman to Oklahoma City will allow him to play in the AHL postseason once he gets back from paternity leave. The Oilers recalled Laurent Brossoit from Oklahoma City to fill out their goalie ranks in place of Bachman.

Oilers' Bachman Returns Victorious

News: Richard Bachman, making his return after nearly a week away due to a death in the family, stopped 25 of 27 shots to deliver a 4-2 win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: That's three straight wins sandwiched around the absence for Richard Bachman, and they've come with about as strong a stretch of netminding -- three total goals in those three games -- as the Oilers have gotten out of their goalies all year long. Don't be terribly surprised if they stick with Bachman for both of the season's final games; after all, what do they have to lose? At this point, the Oilers can neither improve nor worsen their position in the standings, as they're a lock to finish with the NHL's third-worst record.

Oilers' Bachman Set To Start Tuesday

News: Richard Bachman (personal) is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Kings, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: In his last game action with the Oilers, this past Monday, Richard Bachman won his second straight start by stopping 29 of 30 shots in a 4-1 victory over Colorado. Since then, the Oilers have lost their last three games, by a combined tally of 17-3.

Oilers' Bachman Likely To Start Tuesday

News: Coach Todd Nelson indicated Monday that he is "leaning" toward starting Richard Bachman (personal) on Tuesday against the Kings, 630 CHED's Bob Stauffer reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman returned to the Oilers on Monday following his absence due to a death in the family this past week. In his last action with the team, this past Monday, Bachman won his second straight start by turning away 29 of 30 shots in a 4-1 win over the Avs.

Oilers' Bachman Still Away From Team

News: Richard Bachman (personal) remained absent from the Oilers' morning skate, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman left the Oilers earlier this week due to a death in the family and has yet to rejoin the squad. With just one week remaining on the season, it's possible that Bachman will just stay on bereavement leave the rest of the way. The personal tragedy came at an unfortunate time for Bachman, who had impressed with back-to-back victories against the Stars and Avalanche before his departure from the Oilers.

Oilers' Bachman Unavailable Due To Personal Matter

News: Richard Bachman (personal) has left the Oilers and will be unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Ducks, Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: After leading the Oilers to stunning victories his last two times out while stopping 58 of 59 shots, he appeared in line to garner a third straight start Wednesday before personal tragedy set in. He's set to attend to a death in the family through at least Wednesday, but there's a decent chance he could still be unavailable for Thursday's contest against the Kings. Ben Scrivens will man the crease for however long Richard Bachman remains away from the team.

Richard Bachman, G, EDM Second Straight Win For Oilers' Bachman

Richard Bachman

Second Straight Win For Oilers' Bachman

News: Richard Bachman was great Monday, stopping all but one of 30 shots in a 4-1 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: That's two wins in a row for Richard Bachman, who has only allowed just a single goal in starts against Dallas and Colorado. With the Oilers mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, the 27-year-old seems to be making the most of his opportunity to showcase his skills at the NHL level, and he now owns a 16-14-2 career record across parts of four NHL seasons.

Oilers Roll With Bachman On Monday

News: Richard Bachman is slated to start Monday's game against the Avs.
Analysis: The Oilers -- who have won two consecutive games by a combined count of 8-3 -- will give Richard Bachman his second straight start after he stopped all 29 shots that he faced in Friday's 4-0 win over the Stars.

Surprise Shutout For Oilers' Bachman

News: Richard Bachman turned aside all 29 shots in a 4-0 shutout over the Stars on Friday.
Analysis: Embracing the role of spoiler, Richard Bachman turned in a gem against the playoff-hopeful Stars. It was his second career shutout in what was his fifth appearance of the season, so it'll be at least mildly interesting to see if he gets an extended look in the Oilers crease with less than 10 games left on this season's docket.

Oilers' Bachman Draws Start Friday

News: Richard Bachman will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Stars.
Analysis: Though Ben Scrivens probably isn't the Oilers' long-term solution in the net, it appears Richard Bachman has already been dismissed as such, as the 27-year-old owns a 14-14-0 career record to go along with a 3.12 GAA and .898 save percentage over 39 career appearances. Incidentally, all 14 of those victories came when he was a member of the Stars, as he's taken the loss in each of his four starts since joining the Oilers' organization. Though he'll have plenty incentive to turn in a solid outing against his former team, there's little to suggest that Bachman is capable of putting the clamps on the one of the NHL's better attacks.

Oilers' Bachman Handed Loss In Return

News: Richard Bachman came on in relief of Ben Scrivens on Thursday against the Penguins. He stopped 19 of 21 shots and was handed the loss when the Oilers' comeback bid fell short.
Analysis: Richard Bachman entered the game with the Oilers trailing 4-0, then watched as his mates rallied for four unanswered goals to tie the game. Unfortunately, Bachman wasn't able to hold steady the rest of the way, conceding two scores in the final six minutes of the third period to salt the game away for the Penguins. While Bachman performed better of the Oilers' two goalies Thursday, it still seems likely that coach Todd Nelson will go with Scrivens in net for Friday's game in Columbus.

Oilers' Bachman Lit Up In Loss

News: Richard Bachman allowed six goals on 34 shots in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Things were going well for Richard Bachman in the early goings as he was staked out to a 3-0 lead nearly halfway through the game, but it unraveled quickly as he allowed six consecutive goals in less than 18 minutes of action. He's now given up 10 goals in two appearances this season, so there's not much value here for fantasy owners even if he does receive the occasional start the rest of the way.

Oilers' Bachman To Make First Start Of Season

News: Richard Bachman will be between the pipes for Sunday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The Oilers' back-to-back road contests in Carolina and Detroit will afford Richard Bachman the opportunity to pick up his first start of the season. Though he's been with the Oilers since Feb. 10 while Ben Scrivens (hamstring) and Viktor Fasth (knee) missed time, Bachman has only made one appearance in relief, surrendering four goals on 27 shots. Despite Scrivens' pedestrian numbers, he figures to maintain a steady hold on the No. 1 goalie gig the rest of the way, leaving few opportunities for Bachman to get on the ice.

Oilers' Bachman Torched In Season Debut

News: Richard Bachman manned the net for the final two periods of Saturday's loss to the Senators, surrendering four goals on 27 shots.
Analysis: Starter Viktor Fasth was pulled after allowing three scores on 15 shots, opening the door for Richard Bachman to potentially make a push for more duty with a strong relief performance. Unfortunately, Bachman largely failed to clot the bleeding, though his defense didn't do him any favors. As a result, look for Fasth to continue to maintain a sturdy grip on the No. 1 job, despite his deplorable ratios (3.40 GAA, .887 save percentages) on the season.

Oilers Recall Bachman

News: The Oilers have recalled Richard Bachman from AHL Oklahoma City.
Analysis: Richard Bachman gets the recall with fellow goalie Ben Scrivens dealing with a hamstring injury. Scrivens is considered out indefinitely, so if his absence ends up stretching multiple weeks, Bachman would likely receive a start or two at some point. Viktor Fasth is slated to serve as the Oilers' primary netminder.

Oilers' Bachman Reassigned To Minors

News: Richard Bachman was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City after Wednesday's game.
Analysis: With Viktor Fasth (groin) activated from IR and cleared to resume backup duties behind Ben Scrivens, Richard Bachman will return to the minors to create roster room. Bachman never saw the ice for the Oilers after being recalled following Fasth's injury two weeks ago.

Oilers' Bachman Recalled From AHL Oklahoma City

News: The Oilers recalled Richard Bachman from AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
Analysis: Richard Bachman rejoined the Oilers after Viktor Fasth was injured in Edmonton's game on Tuesday and subsequently placed on injured reserve. The 27-year-old Bachman spent most of last season in the AHL, but did appear in three games for the Oilers, posting a 0-2-1 record with a .916 save percentage. The severity of Fasth's injury has not been revealed yet, but either way, Bachman doesn't figure to threaten Ben Scrivens' standing as the team's top goalie.

Oilers' Bachman Clears Waivers

News: Richard Bachman cleared waivers Saturday, according to the Oilers' official site.
Analysis: Richard Bachman will report to Oklahoma City of the AHL where he will split time in net for the Barons. Should the Oilers suffer an injury to Ben Scrivens or Viktor Fasth, Bachman would likely be the goaltender recalled to replace them.

Oilers Place Bachman On Waivers

News: Richard Bachman was placed on waivers by the Oilers on Friday, TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman saw light action with the Oilers in the early part of last season when the team was desperate for goaltending help, but with the additions of Ben Scrivens and Viktor Fasth to the netminding ranks, his services were no longer needed. He'll likely clear waivers and see most of his action once again at Oklahoma City, where he posted a 2.99 GAA and .908 save percentage over 52 games last season.

Bachman Signs With Oilers

News: Richard Bachman has signed a one-year contract with the Oilers, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman, who saw action in three games with the Oilers last season, will reprise his role as a depth goalie for the team. The 26-year-old is coming off a 2013-14 campaign in which he recorded a 26-19-6 record, with a .908 save percentage and 2.99 GAA for AHL Oklahoma City.

Oilers' Give Bachman Qualifying Offer

News: Richard Bachman was one of nine Oilers given qualifying offers on Monday, according to Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Richard Bachman played in a handful of games with Edmonton last season and could be in line for the backup job this season should the Oilers not sign a veteran.

Oilers Reassign Bachman

News: Richard Bachman (lower body) was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
Analysis: Now healthy after missing just over a month with the injury, Richard Bachman will head to the minors to receive regular playing time as he eases himself back from the injury. With Ilya Bryzgalov due to return from IR soon, Bachman figures to remain in the minors until further notice.

Oilers' Bachman Skates Wednesday

News: Richard Bachman (lower body) skated Wednesday morning for the first time since suffering his injury, Tom Gazzola of OilersTV.com reports.
Analysis: Prior to sustaining the injury, Richard Bachman was actually getting some regular run as the Oilers' goalie with Devan Dubnyk and Jason LaBarbera struggling mightily. With recently-appointed No. 1 goalie Ilya Bryzgalov now on injured reserve with a concussion, Bachman could have an opportunity to step in once he returns and fight for regular duty with Dubnyk. However, it's still unclear when Bachman will be activated from IR, as he has been sidelined for over a month and has yet to resume practicing in full.

Oilers' Bachman Leaves Game With Injury

News: Richard Bachman left Saturday's game with what looked like a groin injury.
Analysis: He had to make a hard lateral move and then couldn't push himself back into the net. He required help to get off the ice.

Oilers' Bachman To Start Third Straight

News: Richard Bachman will remain in the net Saturday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Richard Bachman will notch his third straight start with Devan Dubnyk nursing an ankle injury and not quite ready to dress yet. Because both Dubnyk and Jason LaBarbera have been disastrous in goal this season, Bachman could have an opportunity to yield regular starts for the Oilers if he can perform merely adequate in his subsequent outings.
