The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Richard Bachman from the Texas Stars, Dallas' development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). The team also assigned goaltender Jack Campbell to Texas.
Bachman, 25, returns to Dallas after playing two games for Texas during his latest assignment to the AHL. In those two contests, Bachman earned a 2-0-0 record with a .929 save percentage (SV%) and a 2.00 goals against average (GAA). The 5-foot-10, 180-pound goaltender won five of his six games for the AHL affiliate this season, posting a 5-1-0 record in those contests. The Salt Lake City native has appeared in 26 career NHL contests, earning a 10-8-2 record with a .894 SV% and a 3.13 GAA. He was Dallas' fourth-round selection (120th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
Campbell, 21, has skated in 32 games for Texas this season and has a 14-10-3 record with a .906 SV% and a 2.59 GAA. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound goaltender was recalled by Dallas on March 19, and served as Kari Lehtonen's backup for Wednesday's game against Colorado, and Thursday's contest against Los Angeles. The Port Huron, Mich., native was Dallas' first-round selection (11th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to beginning his professional career, Campbell represented Team USA at three consecutive IIHF World U-20 Championships (2010-12), capturing a gold medal in 2010 and a bronze medal in 2011.
The Dallas Stars return to American Airlines Center to face off against the Colorado Avalanche tonight at 7 p.m. CT (TV: FOX Sports Southwest, Radio: 1310 The Ticket).
