Richard Bachman Added To AHL All-Stars Roster

Andrew Miller, Brad Hunt, and now Richard Bachman will represent the Oklahoma City Barons at this year’s AHL All-Star Game. Bachman, who is the Barons #1 and the Oilers #3, has had a truly fantastic season. Like Martin Gerber and Yann Danis before him, Bachman has been the anchor of his team when they needed him the most. A guy who loves OKC, has family nearby, and is just an all around good fella, Bachman deserves this attaboy.

With nineteen AHL games to his credit this season he has an overall record of 12-3-3, and a GAA creeping towards 2.00. Nearly 500 saves and a Sv% of .926, Bachman is certainly one of the best all-around goaltenders in the league. He’s also fabulous mentor for the young prospect, Laurent Brossoit, who has benefited from the tutelage of Sir Bachman.

The All-Star Game kicks off with a skills event this Sunday evening, followed by the All-Star Game on Monday. Bachman is expected to play behind Jacob Markstrom (from Utica) in the weekend’s events.

Richard Bachman Signed To One Year Contract With Oilers

After a prospect heavy season of play in Oklahoma City, Richard Bachman emerged beaten, but not bruised, by the whole ordeal. Two seasons ago he was cut loose by the Stars organization when he became a UFA, and immediately the Oilers went back to the “vet well” as they had done with Martin Gerber and Yann Danis before. Announced today, Richard Bachman will get to lace ’em up as an Oiler once again. The one year deal for Richard comes on the heels of his qualifying offer only weeks ago.

This is important news, and it was expected. Laurent Brossoit is the goaltending golden goose right now, but there has been some struggle to his story. The Oil Kings prospect, drafted to the foreign enemy in Calgary, was swapped last season in a multi-player trade. The Oilers like this kid, perhaps because he has always felt like one of theirs, and after seeing his comments at dev camp the feeling is mutual.

Brossoit has been unapologetic in his speech – he wants 50% of the starts in the AHL this season. That’s a tall order, and by golly he is going to have to earn it. Nelson, like most coaches in the last 10 years, builds teams from the net out. The problem with last season was that the Oklahoma City Barons gave up a league high in shots, and this buried Richard in a nearly three goals allowed in 50+ games. That was a product of the defense in front of him that, until February, played insufferable ugly minutes. The steadying of the roster this season, and simply by maturing, I think Bachman is poised for a stellar year.

I believe Bachman still shoulders nearly 60%-65% of the starts mainly because Brossoit has yet to prove that he can indeed make a difference in net. The competition will be worth watching, and that always makes for high entertainment.

Oilers Release:

The Edmonton Oilers announced today they have agreed to terms with goaltender Richard Bachman on a one-year contract.

Bachman, 26, appeared in 52 games for the Oklahoma City Barons last season, posting a record of 26-19-6. He also recorded a .908 save percentage, and 2.99 goals against average, as well as two shutouts.

The 5’10”, 176 pound goaltender played in three games with the Oilers last season, registering a .916 save percentage and 3.02 goals against average. Bachman made 47 saves in his Edmonton Oilers debut on October 27, 2013 against the Los Angeles Kings.

The Salt Lake City, Utah native has accumulated a 14-12-2 record in 35 career NHL games, including a .903 save percentage, a 2.95 goals against average and one shutout.

Bachman was selected by Dallas in the 4th round, 120th overall, in the 2006 NHL Draft.

“A Crazy year” for David LeNeveu, the New York Rangers’ Black Ace

_______________

What are the odds? A million to one? Who could have ever dreamed of this scenario? It’s almost like a Walt Disney tale where an out of luck baseball pitcher is signed on a lark and steps in at the last minute during the World Series. Goaltender David LeNeveu himself acknowledges how luck, happenstance and being in the right place at the right time created a chance of a lifetime with the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final.

“It’s been a crazy year,” LeNeveu explained to New York Media earlier this week, “to come in here and enjoy the run with them has been unbelievable, a great experience.”

Since 2003 David LeNeveu, the 2002 #46 overall draft pick of the Phoenix Coyotes, has shuttled around the professional leagues a bit. He has played 327 AHL games with seven different teams (two teams twice at different times), 22 NHL games with Phoenix and the Columbus Blue Jackets, 74 games with two Austrian league teams, and 8 ECHL games this season.

Two seasons ago LeNeveu played with the Oklahoma City Barons as they held top place in the AHL for much of the season, winning the West Division Championship, and they went all the way to the Western Conference Finals before being eliminated from the Calder Cup Playoffs. And Dave LeNeveu was a large part of the team’s success that season. LeNeveu along with Yann Danis was one of the best goaltender tandems in the AHL that season and they both ranked near the top with the likes of Ben Scrivens, Ben Bishop, Jeremy Smith and Dustin Tokarski.

Last season while playing with the Linz Black Wings in the Austrian league (EBEL) LeNeveu sustained an injury to his eye after a slap shot puck to the mask from Swede Eric Johansson. LeNeveu received treatment and returned within less than a month to lead his team into the playoffs through the Semifinals.

Following his stint in Austria, LeNeveu and his family chose to remain in North America this season and he signed with the South Carolina Stingrays, the ECHL affiliate of the Providence and Boston Bruins. He only played 8 games for the Stingrays and 1 for the Providence Bruins before the Hartford Wolf Pack, the New York Rangers AHL team, nabbed him and signed him for the remainder of the season. In late January the New York Rangers signed him to a year contract after Henrik Lundqvist was injured and he backed up Cam Talbot the night of January 21st when the Rangers faced the New York Islanders.

When ask about this season LeNeveu explained, “We wanted to come back to North America but it took a while to get the contract we were looking for. We took advantage of a late run in Hartford, just missed the playoffs. I just didn’t want to quit playing. Thankfully, I was able to come up, still practice every day and stay in condition. It’s been a ride. This team’s not done yet, either.”

On Tuesday in Los Angeles LeNeveu talked to a reporter about his unusual situation. “Coming in as a ‘Black Ace’ early on, you’re practicing every day and you’re just trying to stay in good condition”, he explained. “You never know, you never know what’s going to happen. Sometimes the day turns over and you’re possibly in the net.”

Whether it is serendipity, fate or good luck, LeNeveu has found himself in a magical spot that many hockey players only dream about. “An opportunity presented itself, and I was just kind of in the right place at the right time,” he said.

“That’s what it takes for a lot of players who are up and down between the AHL and the NHL, it’s just being in the right place at the right time, getting a little bit of luck and taking advantage of that opportunity.”

The New York Rangers will play their first game of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday which could be enough time for Cam Talbot, the Rangers backup goaltender, to recover from his undisclosed injury. Here’s hoping Talbot well — I don’t wish any player an injury — but if you love a good underdog story you have to be cheering for the Rangers’ Black Ace goaltender David LeNeveu to be on the roster for a Stanley Cup Final game, even if it is only sitting on the bench. How great would that be!

LATE UPDATE 6/4/14: Official word from the New York Rangers is that David LeNeveu will back up Henrik Lundqvist tonight in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in Los Angeles. Alain Vigneault, at today’s pregame press conference, had this to say about LeNeveu:
