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.

Oilers' Bachman Gives Up Four

News: Richard Bachman's second start with the Oilers didn't go quite so well as the first, as he allowed four goals on 26 shots in a loss to the Leafs on Tuesday.
Analysis: That's more like what we expect from an Edmonton netminder, and it gives something of an air of flukiness to the big 47-save debut that Richard Bachman delivered on Sunday. When Devan Dubnyk feels healthy, though, it's possible that Bachman will be the one to stick around rather than Jason LaBarbera.

Oilers Turn To Bachman

News: Richard Bachman will start in goal Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Richard Bachman had a strong outing in an overtime loss to the Kings on Sunday, allowing only one goal on 48 shots. The Oilers will roll with him again Tuesday, with Jason LaBarbera serving as the backup.

Oilers' Bachman Stops 47 In Loss

News: Richard Bachman made 47 saves on 48 shots but took the loss in a shootout to the Kings on Sunday.
Analysis: This is Richard Bachman's first start of the season, but in the past as a backup in Dallas he hasn't shown a ton of promise.

Oilers' Bachman To Start Sunday

News: Richard Bachman will start in goal Sunday against the Kings.
Analysis: Devan Dubnyk is reportedly nursing an ankle injury, so Richard Bachman will step in between the pipes for his first start of the season. Last year, Bachman went 6-5 with a 3.25 GAA in 13 appearances (eight starts) for the Stars.

Oilers Recall Bachman From AHL Oklahoma City

News: The Oilers have recalled Richard Bachman from AHL Oklahoma City on Sunday.
Analysis: Richard Bachman is currently 3-4-1 with a 2.37 GAA and .925 save percentage through eight games for the Barons this season. With current Oilers netminders Devan Dubnyk and Jason La Barbera struggling to keep the puck out of the net, Bachman could see a few extra starts here.

Oilers Sign Bachman

News: The Oilers signed Richard Bachman to a one-year, two-way deal Saturday, 630 CHED's Dan Tencer reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman recorded a 3.25 GAA and a .885 save percentage in 13 games with the Stars last season, but is expected to start the year as the top goaltender with the Oilers' minor league affiliate AHL Oklahoma City in 2013-14, since Devan Dubnyk and Jason LaBarbera are already on the roster.

Stars' Bachman: 34 Saves In Loss

News: Richard Bachman put in a strong, 34-save performance in a 3-0 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night.
Analysis: He was solid, but he needs his teammates to find twine. He finished the season with a 7-4 record.

Stars' Bachman Starting Saturday

News: Richard Bachman will start in goal against the Red Wings on Saturday, the Dallas Morning News' Mike Heika reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman hasn't started since Kari Lehtonen returned from a groin injury, but he will get the nod in Saturday's regular season finale. The Stars have been eliminated from contention and are just hoping to spoil Detroit's bid for a playoff spot.

Stars' Bachman Lets In Four In Loss

News: Richard Bachman made 23 saves on 27 shots in a loss to the Blackhawks on Monday.
Analysis: Richard Bachman had played well since Kari Lehtonen's injury, including winning three straight games, so this is a bit of a dose of reality for Bachman and the Stars, although it was a tough opponent.

Stars Expected To Start Bachman Monday

News: Richard Bachman is in line to start Monday's game against the Blackhawks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman has won three straight starts while filling in for Kari Lehtonen, but Monday's draw is a tough one, as the Blackhawks are on a five-game roll.
