  • 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.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Will play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) Backlund (bruise) will play Thursday against the Ducks.

    Backlund sustained a bruise in Tuesday's game against Colorado after blocking a shot off his knee, but the injury was never believed to be overly serious, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Flames and fantasy owners alike will be happy to have Backlund healthy and ready to go Thursday, as he's been heating up of late, having racked up 10 points (five goals, five assists) in his last seven games.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Leaves Tuesday's contest with bruise-like injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) Backlund exited Tuesday's contest against the Avalanche after blocking a shot and did not return, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet reports.

    Prior to his exit in the second period, Backlund notched his third three-point performance in his last seven outings over just 11:51 of ice time. Flames' head coach Glen Gulutzan stated prior to the game that he is hoping the ailment is merely a bruise which would mean he likely wouldn't miss significant time. The 27-year-old will likely be evaluated Wednesday during the team's off day but at this point, his status for Thursday's matchup with the Ducks is uncertain.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Stuffs stat line in win over Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/24/16) Backlund notched a goal, two assists (one with the man advantage), three shots on net, two blocked shots, a minor penalty and a plus-2 rating during Friday's win over the Canucks.

    After posting a career-high 47 points last year, it's been a mediocre start to the campaign for Backlund. Friday was just his third multi-point night of the year, and his seven goals, 19 points and 88 shots hardly move the fantasy needle outside of deep seasonal settings. Additionally, beating up on the lowly Canucks doesn't boost Backlund's value.
