  • 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.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Has productive night in losing effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/17) Backlund collected two assists and fired four shots on goal in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Another strong game from Backlund, who had the overtime winner against New Jersey on Friday. The 27-year-old is known for being streaky, but his 37 points put him on pace for a career offensive season. He's meshing well with Matthew Tkachuk both at even strength and on the power play, so he could be worth looking at. He's locked into a top-six role and has netted six power-play goals and five game-winners, making him a well-rounded fantasy option.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Buries winning goal in OT

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/17) Backlund scored the decisive goal at 1:13 of overtime in Friday's 4-3 win against the Devils.

    Backlund snapped a six-game goal drought with the marker. Still, he has posted 11 goals with 23 points over 24 games since Dec. 10. That's quite a lengthy stretch at nearly a point-per-game clip. Backlund isn't a known commodity to the casual fantasy owner, but savvy owners and DFS players know very well what Backlund has been up to, and it's mostly been a sweet ride.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Posts another multi-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/17) Backlund scored a pair of goals with an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win against the Panthers.

    Backlund is fifth in the NHL in points since Dec. 10, posting 10 goals and 10 assists over his past 17 games. He continues to pick up points in bunches, and has emerged as a legitimate No. 1 center in all fantasy formats while running hot. Backlund has managed three game-winning goals over past 11 outings.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Helps power win with two-assist night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/17) Backlund notched two assists -- one on the power play -- as well as a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's win over San Jose.

    The Swede's spectacular six-game point streak had given way to a pair of scoreless efforts in which he took only one total shot on goal, but he bounced back nicely in this one. Although he still only put one shot on net against the Sharks, fantasy owners surely won't complain about a two-point night. With 12 goals and 17 helpers in 44 games, Backlund's on pace to easily exceed last year's 47 points, and the well-rounded pivot is on track to finish with a positive rating for the fourth straight season.
