  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Dishes for score in home win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/17) Backlund managed a primary assist on the game's first goal by Michael Frolik on Friday. The Flames beat the Stars at home, 3-1.

    It's been an outstanding year for Backlund, as his helper put him in a tie for the team's points lead at 49, sharing the gaudy total with wunderkind Johnny Gaudreau. But that's not all for Backlund, as he reigns supreme on the power play with seven goals and 15 points on the man advantage to complement seven game-winners. He's cruising past career-high marks in several categories, so hopefully he keeps it up with the fantasy playoffs right around the corner.

    The tally was the game-winner in overtime. Backlund has posted five goals with seven points with a plus-5 rating over his past six games. He also has managed four goals with 10 points over his past nine games against Eastern Conference foes. Backlund will look to keep up the good work against the Islanders on Sunday afternoon.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Continues march toward career-best campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/17) Backlund scored a goal and added a power-play assist Thursday in a 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

    He's been a remarkably steady presence for fantasy owners lately, picking up nine points in his last eight contests. Backlund is now just four points shy of last year's career-best 47, and with 21 games left on the schedule, he could very well make a run at 60. The 2007 first-round pick is finally growing into his pedigree.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Two goals Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/17) Backlund scored twice in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Predators.

    Backlund's second of the night tied the game 5-5 with 9:10 to play. This effort put the Swedish center over the 40-point mark for just the second time in his career while also bringing him within four of last season's career-high 21 goals.
