  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Exits World Cup of Hockey to rehab concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/24/16) Backlund (concussion) will head back to Calgary to rehab, Craig Custance of ESPN reports.

    Due to a concussion sustained during Tuesday's World Cup of Hockey matchup with Finland, Backlund will miss the rest of the tournament. The 27-year-old will now turn his attention to recovering in time for the Flames' season opener Oct. 12 against the Oilers. Coming off his best campaign to date (47 points in 82 games) there is plenty of excitement that the playmaking center has further improvement in store.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Day-to-day with concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/16) Backlund is day-to-day with a concussion sustained in the World Cup of Hockey on Tuesday, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

    Backlund took a high hit to the head in Tuesday's World Cup match against rival Finland, leading many to believe that he would be forced to drop out of the World Cup of Hockey due to the injury. However, the Swede reportedly is feeling better and remains in Toronto under the care of the Flames medical staff. Team Sweden will square off against Europe on Sunday afternoon for the semifinal round of Group B. Expect more light to be shed on Backlund's injury ahead of that game.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: May be dealing with concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/16) Backlund is believed to have sustained a concussion while participating in World Cup of Hockey action, TSN Radio Vancouver reports.

    Backlund was on the receiving end of a nasty hit up high from defenseman Sami Lepisto in Tuesday's game against Finland. He was held out of Wednesday's contest against Team North America, which ended in an overtime loss, but Sweden has advanced to the semifinals. Between this injury and not cracking the scoresheet four games, including the preliminary round, it's been a rough tournament for Backlund, who reportedly will meet with Flames doctors to undergo further evaluation.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Joining Sweden for World Cup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/1/16) Backlund will replace the injured Henrik Zetterberg (knee) on Sweden's World Cup of Hockey roster, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

    Backlund closed out the final four games of the 2015-16 season on a tear, as he tallied six goals and two helpers, including a hat-trick. The center had an uneven season filled with hot and cold streaks, but could benefit from playing in the World Cup and shaking off any offseason rust. The 27-year-old is coming off a career year and should attract plenty of interest from fantasy owners.

    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.
