  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Staying put

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/17/17) Backstrom won't be exposed for the expansion draft, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Scoring 23 goals and 86 points will earn you a comfortable position with the Caps. This is the fourth consecutive season where Backstrom surpassed the 70-point mark, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Washington is bound to lose some depth this offseason, though, so it'll be interesting to see how that affects Backstrom's impact with the program.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Paces team with 86 points in 2016-17

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/17/17) Backstrom finished the 2016-17 campaign with 23 goals and 86 points in 82 games.

    The 28-year-old notched his highest point total since netting 101 in 2009-10. While his goal total improved modestly, Backstrom looked more comfortable shooting the puck this year than he has in a long while, and he continued to keep defenders honest. The talented playmaker dazzled as one of the league's best setup men, leading the league in power-play assists and trailing only Art Ross Trophy winner Connor McDavid for the overall league lead in helpers. The ultra-reliable Swedish pivot should be one of the first centers off the board in upcoming fantasy drafts.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Headed to Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/11/17) Backstrom was added to Team Sweden's World Championship roster Thursday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    The 29-year-old Swede returns to the international stage after missing last year's World Championships. If he can pick up where he left off in the NHL playoffs (13 points in 13 games), he'll provide a significant boost to Team Sweden's medal aspirations.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Rings up two points in Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/17) Backstrom scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over Pittsburgh in Game 6 on Monday.

    With seven points in the second-round series against the Penguins and 13 in 12 playoff games overall, Backstrom has delivered the type of production required from a top-line center for postseason success. He'll look to help complete the Capitals' comeback in Game 7 on Wednesday in D.C.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Assists on game-winning goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/2/17) Backstrom scored a goal and added an assist -- both on the power play -- during Monday's Game 3 win in overtime against Pittsburgh.

    This was Backstrom's second consecutive multi-point game in the series, and he's now up to four goals, 10 points and 23 shots through nine postseason games. As Washington's go-to offensive center, Backstrom's fantasy floor and ceiling are both high, and it's worth noting that the veteran is also coming off his best regular-season campaign (86 points) since the 2009-10 season.
