Player News
  • Backstrom has registered 12 goals and 54 points in 61 games thus far in the 2019-20 season. Backstrom is near his customary 70-point pace, although a six-game absence during December could prevent the 32-year-old from reaching that mark for a seventh consecutive season. With a five-year contract extension in hand, the Swedish center will remain a key cog in Washington's offense for the foreseeable future and therefore has considerable fantasy value when hockey resumes.

  • Backstrom scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Penguins. He lit the lamp for the first time since Feb. 13, ending a 10-game drought, but Backstrom has still been productive lately with nine points in his last eight contests. On the season, the 32-year-old has 12 goals and 54 points through 60 games.

  • Backstrom dished out a pair of assists in Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers. Alex Ovechkin from Backstrom and John Carlson is a familiar line in the stat sheet, and that scenario played out twice in the third period, allowing the Capitals to walk away with a point. The pass-first Backstrom has 42 assists in 59 games played this season, and he's tossed in 11 goals as well.

  • Backstrom dished a power-play helper and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Wild. Backstrom's secondary helper on Alex Ovechkin's tally accounted for the 300th power-play assist in the former's career. The Swedish center has racked up 51 points (18 with a man advantage), 125 shots and 14 PIM in 57 contests this year. Backstrom may finish shy of the 70-point mark for the first time since since the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign -- he missed eight games earlier in the year due to an upper-body injury, which has had an effect on his output.

  • Backstrom notched two assists in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Penguins. Both helpers came as part of a four-goal third period for the Caps. Backstrom has a modest three-game point streak during which he's recorded five points (all assists), and on the season he's been his usual productive self, amassing 11 goals and 50 points through 54 contests.
