  • Backstrom finished the 2015-16 season with 20 goals and 70 points. The 28-year-old also led the league with 27 power-play assists and was second in power-play points with 30. A fixture in a deep and talented top-six, the Swedish pivot is one of the more reliable playmakers in the league and should be one of the first centers off the board in drafts this fall.

  • Backstrom picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss in Game 6. Backstrom did what he could to keep Washington's playoff hopes afloat, but the center's third multi-point outing wasn't enough. The 28-year-old finishes the postseason with two markers and nine apples, which adds up to his second-best total in the playoffs over his career. It easily could have been more, but the Caps were sent packing earlier than expected.

  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Lone scorer in Game 6
    By RotoWire Staff

    Backstrom netted the only goal of the contest in Game 6, leading the Capitals to a series win over the Flyers. Backstrom one-timed a deft Marcus Johansson feed for the game-winning tally. The Swede's had a late start to the 2015-16 campaign following offseason hip surgery, but he still managed to play in 75 games -- not including the playoffs -- picking up 20 goals and 50 assists in that span. Backstrom remains an elite forward as the Caps gear up to face the Penguins for the second round of the postseason.

  • Backstrom tallied a pair of assists in Monday's Game 3 win over the Flyers. Backstrom continues to roll, as he set up the club's first two goals of the game before Washington exploded for four more tallies in the 6-1 rout. He's now up to six points just three games into the series -- four of which have come on the power play -- so keep plugging him into your playoff lineup.

    Backstrom had a big day Saturday in a 4-1 win over the Flyers. He scored a goal and set up two others. He's one of the NHL's best playmakers and that was on full display Saturday. Backstrom has a three-game point streak on the go, with seven points including six helpers, in his last three games. He's hot and then some. Wow.
