  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Notches two points in victory over Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/16) Backlund scored his sixth goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Canucks.

    While it was an empty-netter, it all counts the same, as Backlund got on the scoresheet for the first time in six games. He's currently centering the second line and seeing decent minutes, but he's yet to score a power-play goal this season and is known for being streaky, so exhibit caution.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Adds two helpers to pile

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/16) Backlund helped out on both of Sam Bennett's goals and went plus-3 in Thursday's 4-2 win over Columbus.

    That's six helpers in the last four games for Backlund, and Bennett's scored five of those goals. You can hardly ask for better chemistry than that, and it's meant a huge spike in ice time for Backlund recently -- he's averaging more than 18 minutes per game (including 18:40 on Thursday) over his last five, numbers more in line with the past two campaigns than the first three months of this one.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Grabs two assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/16) Backlund assisted on a pair of goals in Monday's loss to the Sharks.

    Both helpers came on the power play, as Backlund continues to see some time on the man advantage. The center has just 18 points through 41 points on the season though, so he's only worth a look in deeper leagues.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Scores fourth goal in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/15) Backlund netted his fourth goal of the season, had an assist and fired five shots on goal in Tuesday's win over the Sharks.

    That's the second goal in three games for the streaky Backlund, who had previously gone 10 straight games without finding twine. He's worth riding on hot streaks in deeper formats, but with just 11 points averaging under 15:00 of ice time, we can't recommend using him in shallow formats.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Tallies assist in loss Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/25/15) Backlund registered an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Anaheim.

    The point snapped a four-game scoreless streak for Backlund, who had started November on fire. Backlund is a really streaky fantasy player, which makes him fairly unreliable on a day to day basis. He does have seven points in 10 November games, however, and is on pace for about 30 points this season.
