    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/17) Backstrom posted two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against the Stars.

    Backstrom extended his point streak to nine games, posting four goals and 12 assists during the impressive run. The Swedish pivot is among the league leader in points, and he is likely to be among the favorites for the Selke Trophy at season's end. He remains a must-have fantasy option across all pools.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Tallies assist, extends point streak to eight games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/17) Backstrom picked up an assist in Washington's 7-3 rout over the Blues.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Extends point streak to seven games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/17) Backstrom had a goal in Monday's 8-7 OT loss to the Penguins.

    Unfortunately, Backstrom was also tagged with a minus-3 rating in the high-scoring affair. Riding a seven-game point streak, the Swedish playmaker now has 13 goals and 43 points in 44 games along with a plus-11 rating. He's among the league leaders in points and building a strong bid for the Selke Trophy. Make sure he's a fixture in your lineups.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Named "first star" of the week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Backstrom was named "first star" of the week ending Jan. 15.

    Backstrom had three goals and 10 points in four games during that time, helping propel the Capitals to their current nine-game win streak. The Swedish pivot has 12 goals and 42 points in as many games this season and is tied for 10th overall in league scoring. The slight uptick in goal-scoring makes Backstrom, one of the league's most gifted playmakers, and even more valuable asset this season as he could surpass the 20-goal mark for the first time since the 2009-10 season. Make sure he's in your lineup every night.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Dominates Pens with four-point showing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/17) Backstrom scored a power-play goal and added three assists (one with the man advantage) during Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh.

    The veteran pivot has been a high-end contributor dating back to mid-November with 10 goals, 29 points (12 with the man advantage), 56 shots and a plus-12 rating over his past 27 games. Backstrom's production this season is also encouraging because he hasn't been seeing as much five-on-five time with Alex Ovechkin , and the 29-year-old center's 13.4 shooting percentage is likely sustainable based on the 13.5 mark he posted over the past two seasons. Don't underrate Backstrom, he's still an elite scorer and fantasy asset in all settings.
