  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Won't require surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/13/18) Backstrom will not need surgery to repair two fractures in his finger, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Backstrom missed four outings due to injury, but was able to help the Caps close out the last nine games of the season and lift Lord Stanley's Cup, as he tallied 10 points in those final contests. Considering the center won't need surgery, it seems unlikely his finger issue will linger into the 2018-19 campaign.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Assists in winning Stanley Cup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/8/18) Backstrom dished out a power-play helper during Thursday's 4-3, Stanley Cup-clinching win over Vegas.

    Backstrom missed four games due to a shoulder injury, but he still managed to chip in five goals and 18 assists in 20 appearances during his team's run to its first Stanley Cup in franchise history. He did his best work on the power play, producing 13 helpers with the extra man. While the narrative centered mostly on Alex Ovechkin, Backstrom's 799 points in 815 career games also qualified him as one of the league's best players without a championship, but that blemish is no more.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Puts up three assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/4/18) Backstrom set up a pair of power-play goals and added a third helper Monday, helping his team earn a 6-2 win over Vegas in Game 4.

    Backstrom now has nine points in six games since returning from injury and has clearly re-established himself as a strong option for both the Capitals and your fantasy roster.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Continues to contribute

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/28/18) Backstrom scored a goal, but it wasn't enough in a 6-4 Game 1 loss to Vegas on Monday.

    Backstrom now has five points in his past three games, and it appears that he's shaken off the injury that kept him out of three Eastern Conference finals games. Opportunities might not come as easily in Game 2 as the Golden Knights look to tighten up the defense.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Makes his presence felt

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/21/18) Backstrom posted a pair of assists in Game 6, his first of the Eastern Conference finals, helping his team earn a 3-0 win Monday over Tampa Bay.

    Backstrom hadn't been a factor on the scoresheet as Washington lost its grip on the series, but he set up T.J. Oshie twice to get back on track. Despite the fact he's playing through a known hand/wrist injury, expect Backstrom back in the lineup Wednesday in Game 7 (unless you hear otherwise).
