  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Picks up helper Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/21/17) Backstrom had a power-play assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win against the Red Wings.

    The Swedish pivot has had a blistering start to the 2017-18 campaign with three goals and 12 points in eight games -- placing him near the top of the league leaders in the Art Ross Trophy race. Backstrom may not keep scoring at this incredible pace all season, but he's a reliable playmaker and high-end fantasy asset in all settings.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Extends point streak to five games and 11 points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/17) Backstrom extended his point streak to five games and 11 points with his third goal of the season in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Flyers.

    Backstrom was a surprising zero rating on the game, which is pretty remarkable given the number of pucks surrendered by the Caps. His 11 points on the season are good for a share of the league lead with teammate Evgeny Kuznetsov.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Puts up four points in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Backstrom had a goal and three assists Friday in a 5-2 win over the Devils.

    The Capitals offense was on fire in Newark, and nobody was hotter than Backstrom. He was involved in all but one goal and had three points on the power play. At 10 points already this year, he's off to an outstanding start.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Will play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Contrary to a previous report, Backstrom will play Friday against the Devils, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    The announcement that Backstrom was scratched from the lineup was evidently the result of an error on NHL.com's official roster report, but the Swedish pivot will slot into his usual spot in the Capitals' top six and first power-play unit against New Jersey. The 29-year-old pivot has enjoyed a great start to the campaign, racking up one goal and five assists through the first four games.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Surprise scratch Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Backstrom (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Devils, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    The nature of Backstrom's issue remains a mystery, but the Capitals will have to try and find a way to generate offense without one of their best centers against Cory Schneider and the Devils on Friday. Washington should update Backstrom's status ahead of Saturday's game against the Flyers.
