Richard Bachman's recently inked two-way contract comes with a $650,000 cap hit.

Even if Bachman spends the full 2016-17 campaign in the minors, he's still set to earn $450,000. He had a 2.75 GAA and .900 save percentage in 35 AHL games last season.

Richard Bachman has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

Bachman had a 2.75 GAA and .900 save percentage in 35 AHL contests in 2015-16. There's a chance that he'll play for Vancouver at some point during the 2016-17 campaign if Ryan Miller or Jacob Markstrom get hurt, but otherwise he'll be spending the season in the minors.

Richard Bachman has been reassigned to AHL Utica.

Jacob Markstrom is finally ready to resume his role as Vancouver's backup goalie, so Bachman will head down to the minors. Bachman has played one game for the Canucks this season and stopped 28 of 31 shots in a 4-3 win against Arizona.

Richard Bachman turned away 28 shots in Friday's 4-3 victory over Arizona.

A fine first start of the season for Bachman, who if he keeps giving these sorts of games will see quite a few more.

Richard Bachman will play between the pipes for the first time this season.

Bachman is filling in for the injured Jacob Markstrom (lower body), but so far Vancouver has used Ryan Miller exclusively. Bachman has a career 2.93 GAA and .904 save percentage in 42 NHL contests.

It looks like Richard Bachman will be with the Vancouver Canucks for at least three weeks.

That's because Jacob Markstrom will be sidelined for at least that long with a lower-body injury. Bachman is serving as Ryan Miller's understudy, but given how long he's now expected to be around for, Bachman will probably pick up at least one start before he's demoted.

Richard Bachman has been summoned from the minors.

He will serve as Ryan Miller's backup Wednesday night against Calgary because Jacob Markstrom is out with a lower-body injury.

The Vancouver Canucks have sent netminder Richard Bachman to the minors.

Bachman will provide depth in net should either Ryan Miller or Jacob Markstrom get hurt. He has no fantasy value.

Richard Bachman had the back end of a split-start on Friday night, and was beaten three times on 18 Calgary shots in the 4-1 loss.

It may not be fair, but Bachman needed to be ready to come in mid way through the game and he was not. Even if you give him a pass on Michael Ferland's power play goal because it ping-ponged around before finding his stick, Bachman simply wasn't sharp. The backup role to Ryan Miller is presumably Jacob Markstrom's to lose, but there's a lot of time between now and April for things to change.

Richard Bachman has signed on the dotted line with Vancouver on a two-year deal.

He spent the 2014-15 campaign with the Edmonton Oilers organization and he made seven appearances with the big club. Bachman posted a 2.84 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage in those matches.
Wed, Jul 1, 2015 02:15:00 PM

Richard Bachman picked up his third straight win with 25 saves in the Oilers 4-2 upset of LA on Tuesday.

Bachman has now allowed just three goals while stopping 83 of 86 shots during a three game personal win streak. He did let in a stinker of a goal on a center ice shot from Drew Doughty late in the third period but his teammates picked up with an empty net goal late so it didn't turn out to be the story of the game. Bachman is likely to get remainder of the starts if the Oilers are smart in riding the hot hand.

Richard Bachman will be between the pipes for Edmonton on Tuesday against Los Angeles.

Prior to leaving the team because of the death of his brother, Bachman posted two straight wins for the Oilers. He stopped 58 of 59 shots during that span.

Richard Bachman (personal) has rejoined the Edmonton Oilers.

Bachman temporarily left the team following the sudden death of his brother. Oilers coach Todd Nelson said he was leaning towards starting Bachman on Tuesday, but the final decision hadn't been made.
Tue, Apr 7, 2015 09:33:00 AM

Richard Bachman won't be available for Edmonton on Wednesday because of a death in his family.

He has posted two wins for the Oilers in his past two outings and he's stopped 58 of the 59 shots he has faced during that time. Our deepest condolences go to him and his family for their loss.
