Richard Bachman: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bachman began last year in the minors, but found himself in the NHL with an early-season injury to Kari Lehtonen. He proceeded to outplay then-backup Andrew Raycroft and served as the backup going forward upon Lehtonen's return. He posted an 8-5 record and 2.77 goals against average in that role. Jack Campbell is the likely heir apparent to Lehtonen in a few years, but Campbell's inconsistent play as a pro should have Bachman as the backup in Dallas for at least the next year.
Bachman placed himself among the top goalies in the AHL with a solid season (28-19-5, .927 save percentage, 2.20 GAA) but finds himself in an organization with Kari Lehtonen at the NHL-level and first round pick Jack Campbell behind him. Stuck, in other words. He's expected to spend the bulk of the year in the AHL again, barring injury to either Lehtonen or backup Andrew Raycroft.
