  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Feasts on Vancouver with hat trick

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/16) Backlund notched his first-career hat trick -- one goal on the power play and another shorthanded -- and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 7-3 win over Vancouver.

    Backlund has been ridiculous in April after going pointless in eight straight to end March. The 27-year-old has amassed six goals -- two shorthanded -- in three games, tacking on an assist for good measure. It's easily the center's most productive stretch of the season as he aims to redefine the meaning of finishing strong. Oh, not to mention Backlund now has a new career-high 21 tallies.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Leads offensive charge Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/16) Backlund scored twice and had an assist in Saturday's win over the Oilers.

    The three-point effort was just the first time in nine games Backlund had gotten on the scoresheet, giving him 17 goals and 42 points in 79 games. He's put up decent totals on the year, but the second-liner is just too inconsistent to be trusted in shallower formats. Considering he's streaky, Backlund could be worth getting in your lineup for these final three games after that multi-point effort.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Helps offense start on right foot

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/16) Backlund assisted on the Flames' first two goals Wednesday, contributing majorly to a strong first-period start en route to a 4-1 win over the Jets.

    That makes four straight games on the scoresheet and eight points in the last seven games for Backlund, who's now tied his career-high 39 points from two years ago. He's been a remarkably consistent scorer since early February and should be under strong consideration for DFS lineups while he's running hot, as the Swede -- who turns 27 on Thursday -- doesn't come with a hefty price tag.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Will dress Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/16) Despite missing morning skate, coach Bob Hartley indicated that Backlund will play in Wednesday's game against the Jets, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Backlund was the presumed question mark following the Flames' emergency recall of Freddie Hamilton on Wednesday, but it appears it's actually Sean Monahan that could miss the contest. It's possible things will change if Monahan misses the evening's game, but Backlund currently set to center the club's second line alongside Kenny Agostino and Michael Frolik, and should be deployed normally in fantasy lineups.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Misses morning skate Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/16) Backlund did not participate in practice Wednesday morning, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

    With the emergency recall of Freddie Hamilton, it appears Backlund will miss Wednesday evening's game with Winnipeg. Backlund has been on a roll, with five points in his last five games, so not having him will hurt a Flames team already struggling mightily.
