  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Reaches milestone in Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/17) Backstrom picked up a goal with two assists, two hits and a blocked shot in Saturday's 6-4 win against the Ducks.

    Backstrom reached 700 career points with his first assist. He is working on a seven-game point streak, posting four goals with nine assists and a plus-5 rating. The veteran is lighting it up on the man advantage, posting two power-play goals with four assists during the point streak. He is averaging more than a point per game (60 in 56), and he has a good chance of his first 80-point season since 2009-10.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Advances point streak to six games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Backstrom rattled off a pair of assists (one on the power play) and an empty-net goal in Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Red Wings.

    He's now sitting on three goals, seven helpers and a plus-6 rating over the course of a six-game point streak. One of the NHL's most accomplished playmakers, the Swedish center is second in assists only to Connor McDavid, who has him beaten by one with 42. Backstrom's now pulling more than a point per game (57 in 55), offering legitimate hope that he could crack the 80 mark for the first time since 2009-10.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Has points in four straight games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/17) Backstrom recorded an assist in Sunday's 5-0 victory over the Kings.

    The 29-year-old pivot continues to pace the Capitals in scoring with 53 points in as many games. Second only to Connor McDavid in the league lead for assists, the Swede should break last season's 70-point campaign, so keep him in your lineup.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Nets game-winning goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/17) Backstrom scored the game-winning goal on the power play Saturday in a 3-2 victory over Montreal.

    Backstrom is having an excellent year -- he has 15 goals and 52 points in 52 games. He sits seventh overall in league scoring and second in helpers. Backstrom has been particularly hot in 2017, potting 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) in his last 15 games. He's fantasy gold.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Helps sink Bruins with three-point night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/1/17) Backstrom scored a goal and added two assists (one on the power play) during Wednesday's win over Boston.

    Now up to 14 goals and 51 points through 51 games this season, Backstrom continues to be one of the most consistent scorers in the league. He has found the scoresheet in 12 of his past 14 outings and posted a multi-point showing in six of those contests. Backstrom will never be a prolific goal scorer or high-volume shooter, but he fills up the points column with the best of them.
