  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Skipping Worlds
    By RotoWire Staff

    Backstrom will not participate in the 2019 IIHF World Championship. Backstrom listed "injury" as the reason for declining the invitation, and though he hinted that he was bothered by some kind of issue during the playoffs, no further update has been provided. The 31-year-old center finished with 74 points in 80 games -- while adding five goals and eight points in seven postseason contests -- during 2018-19 and should be a top fantasy playmaker again in 2019-20.

  • Backstrom scored twice on four shots and added two helpers in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Hurricanes in Game 5. The four-point outing doubled his playoff output to eight points. Backstrom has taken on the finisher role with five goals in as many games in the series. He's added 11 hits and 15 shots on goal. Three of his points have come with a man advantage.

  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Adds two more points
    By RotoWire Staff

    Backstrom scored a goal on four shots and added a helper in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against the Hurricanes in Game 2 of their first-round series. Backstrom has been on fire to open the series, scoring three times across the two games to pace the Capitals' offense. He's more noted as a playmaker, but fantasy owners will certainly appreciate the goals as well. Backstrom had 74 points in 80 contests this season, and he's living up to his first-line center role quite effectively so far in the playoffs.

  • Backstrom scored the game's first two goals, as Washington defeated Carolina 4-2 on Thursday in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series. Backstrom's second goal was of the power-play variety and doubled Washington's lead before Alex Ovechkin stretched it to three prior to the end of the first period. Carolina would get to within one goal, but the Capitals would ultimately hold on for a critical Game 1 victory.

  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Back at practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Backstrom (rest) suited up for Monday's practice, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Backstrom was rested for Saturday's game against the Islanders and is expected to play in Game 1 of Washington's series against the Hurricanes. The Swede will likely be an elite postseason fantasy option after producing 74 points in 80 games this campaign.
