Playing career

Bacashihua was selected in the first round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars, 26th overall. He spent two seasons with the Stars' AHL affiliate Utah Grizzlies before he was traded on June 25, 2004 to the St. Louis Blues for Shawn Belle.[1]

Jason played for the Blues AHL affiliate's the Worcester IceCats and the Peoria Rivermen before being called up to the main Blues roster and making his NHL debut in the 2005–06 season. After failing to make the team out of training camp, Bacashihua was assigned to Peoria prior to the 2007–08 NHL season.

On November 8, 2007, Bacashihua was traded by the Blues to the Colorado Avalanche for future considerations, and was assigned to the Avalanche's affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.[2] The Monsters are the same Grizzlies franchise, renamed and relocated, with whom Bacashihua started his AHL career. Bacashihua spent the next season and a half with the Monsters rotating the starting position with Tyler Weiman.

On July 31, 2009, Bacashihua signed a one-year contract with the Hershey Bears of the AHL for the 2009-10 season.[3] He appeared in pre-season games for the Washington Capitals before being re-assigned to Hershey.
