Colorado College goaltender Richard Bachman is close to agreeing to terms on a standard three-year rookie contract. The 21-year-old Bachman was taken 120th overall in the 2006 entry draft and has spent the last two seasons at Colorado College.
He went 25-9-1 with a 1.95 GAA and was named a first-team All-Star for the Western Collegiate Hockey Association last season. This year, he played in front of a less experienced team and went 14-11-10 with a 2.63 GAA.
If Bachman signs, he will forego the final two years of college eligibility and will probably play in the AHL or the ECHL next season. Bachman will end his college career with a 2-5-0 record in the playoffs.
