Position analysis: Goaltending should be a strength, especially when Richard Bachman is in net. Bachman has spent the past two seasons in the NHL and was one of the AHL's top goalies three years ago with the Texas Stars. Olivier Roy, the Barons' backup last season, must show more consistency or Roy could be replaced by Ty Rimmer who starts the season in Double-A.
No. 30 RICHARD BACHMAN
Size: 5-foot-10, 176
Hometown: Salt Lake City
2012-13 (Dallas, NHL): Kari Lehtonen's backup the past two seasons, Bachman joins a new organization for the first time since he was a fourth-round pick in 2006. Bachman was 14-10-1 with a 2.94 GAA and .901 save percentage his two seasons with Dallas.
No. 31 OLIVIER ROY
Size: 6-foot-0, 180
Hometown: Amqui, PQ (Canada)
2012-13 (OKC, AHL; Stockton, ECHL): It's a big year for Roy, who could get passed by the two Double-A goalies in the system if he doesn't take his game to the next level. But Roy's overall stats last year with the Barons (9-9-1, 2.77 GAA, .902 saves percentage) were solid.
