Bachman was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City after Wednesday's game.

With Viktor Fasth (groin) activated from IR and cleared to resume backup duties behind Ben Scrivens, 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.

The Oilers recalled Bachman from AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Bachman rejoined the Oilers after Viktor Fasth was injured in Edmonton's game on Tuesday against the Kings. The 27-year-old goalie 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 so Bachman may see a few appearances for the Oilers as the backup to Ben Scrivens.

Bachman cleared waivers Saturday, according to the Oilers web site.

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, he would likely be the goaltender recalled to replace them.

Bachman was placed on waivers by the Oilers on Friday, TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports.

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.

Richard Bachman has inked a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

Bachman had a 2.99 GAA and .908 save percentage in 52 AHL games in 2013-14. He'll probably start the season in the minors and get called up if Viktor Fasth or Ben Scrivens get hurt.

Richard Bachman left Saturday's game with a groin injury.

The Oilers netminder was making his third straight start. He had given up two goals on nine shots in 13:52 before departing. In relief, Jason LaBarbera really wasn't much better, making 19 of 22 saves.

Richard Bachman has been the best Oilers goalie in the early going.

Bachman was recalled on an emergency basis on Sunday as Devan Dubnyk is out of action but his performance in the last two games have put into the Oilers goaltending mix as the team is floundering at 3-9-2. Since he is an emergency callup, Bachman will have to be returned to the minors once Dubnyk is deemed healthy but he should be recalled quickly after that if he continues to play well in net. Bachman was especially outstanding Sunday, stopping 47 of 48 shots in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Kings.

Richard Bachman allowed four goals on 26 shots in the Edmonton's 4-0 loss to Toronto Tuesday night.

Bachman started his second straight game for the Oilers and he didn't impress this time. Goaltending has been a huge problem for the Oilers this season so it is not clear who will start the next game for them. Is it Devan Dubnyk, Jason LaBarbera or Bachman? We will have to wait and see.
