Back strain sidelined center since Dec. 7
Bacashihua is 3-10-2 with a 2.78 goals-against average and an .898 save percentage at Utah of the AHL. The 26th overall pick of the 2001 draft has never played an NHL game, but went 0-1-1 (1.54 GAA, .925) in four games this preseason.
Ott strained his back Dec. 7 at Anaheim and hasn't played since. The move was retroactive to that day. He has one goal and four assists in 28 games this season.
