Bouchard scored a power-play goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added a pair of hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.
Bouchard's long-range goal at 19:13 of the second period gave the Oilers a 3-1 lead. The 21-year-old blueliner has played a limited role this season with just five points in 13 appearances. He's unlikely to see much playing time once the playoffs roll around, but head coach Dave Tippett will want the young defenseman ready to go in case he's needed due to injuries on the blue line.
Bouchard was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.
It's unclear if Bouchard will be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Canucks. If he plays, it'll likely either be in a seven-defensemen lineup or to replace Caleb Jones on the third pairing.

Bouchard has played just one NHL game since Feb. 25, as the 21-year-old was bumped out of the rotation when Ethan Bear returned from injured reserve.

Bouchard recorded two assists and a game-high eight shots on goal in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Jets.
Bouchard helped give the Oilers some depth scoring, assisting on both of Alex Chiasson's tallies in the contest. The 21-year-old Bouchard has racked up four points, 22 shots and an even plus-minus rating in six appearances. While Ethan Bear (head) is close to returning, Bouchard's place in the lineup appears secure, especially if William Lagesson (upper body) ends up missing time.
Bouchard scored a goal on two shots, doled out four hits and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Senators.
Bouchard gave the Oilers a lead at 17:19 as he cashed in on a set-up from Jujhar Khaira. The tally was Bouchard's second of his career -- his only other goal came in the 2018-19 season.

Bouchard's season debut was a success, and he saw a regular shift. His helper came on Jesse Puljujarvi's second-period tally. William Lagesson and Slater Koekkoek split duties on the third pairing with Bouchard. It remains to be seen if the 21-year-old Bouchard will earn an everyday role going forward. The 10th overall pick from 2018 would probably benefit from another season with AHL Bakersfield, but cross-border quarantining would reduce that benefit drastically, so it's possible Bouchard only drops down to the taxi squad if he ends up as a rotational player.
Bouchard (back) was promoted from the taxi squad Tuesday.
Bouchard is expected to make his season debut in Tuesday's game against the Senators. The 2018 first-round pick (10th overall) hasn't played an NHL game since his rookie season, but he's been solid in the AHL and the Swedish Hockey League since then. This may be an opportunity to earn more playing time moving forward.

Bouchard (back) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Jets, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

The Oilers shifted Bouchard to the taxi squad Thursday.
Bouchard earned a shot on the 23-man roster out of training camp, but he didn't suit up in Wednesday's Opening Night game against the Canucks. The 2018 first-round pick will continue to develop this season, as he'll likely push Adam Larsson for a spot on the third defensive pairing.
Bouchard is on the Oilers' training camp roster, indicating his loan with Sodertalje SK in Sweden is complete, Dustin Nielson of TSN 1260 reports.
Bouchard spent all of last season with AHL Bakersfield, collecting 36 points in 54 games in his first full pro season. The 21-year-old top prospect may still be a year or so away from making the Oilers' roster, but he'll likely challenge Adam Larsson for a spot on the third pairing in training camp.
Bouchard will begin the 2020-21 season on loan with Swedish second-tier team Sodertalje SK.
With AHL Bakersfield this year, Bouchard garnered seven goals and 29 helpers in 54 contests but wasn't able to secure a call-up this year. The 20-year-old blueliner did make his NHL debut back in 2018-19, in which he grabbed one goal in seven appearances for Edmonton. The retirement of Mike Green figures to open up a spot on the 23-man roster, which Bouchard could secure during training camp.

Bouchard has capitalized on his offensive talent in the minors this season, racking up seven goals and 26 assists (33 points) over 50 games with Bakersfield.

Bouchard was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield following Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Bouchard did not play in the contest. The 19-year-old defenseman showed well in rookie camp, but Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca believes general manager Ken Holland would like Bouchard to get his first professional experience in the minors. The 10th overall pick from 2018 may get called up later in the season, but it's unlikely he will contribute much, if at all, at the NHL level this season.
