  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Posts another 50-assist season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10:22 pm ET) Backstrom registered an assist while logging 14:37 of ice time during Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

    Backstrom has hit the 50-helper mark in each of the last five seasons and is second only to San Jose's Joe Thornton for the most 50-assist seasons among active players with nine in his 13 seasons as a pro. This is further proof that the 31-year-old center is one of the top playmakers in the game and a must-start every time he takes the ice.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Stays hot in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/19) Backstrom picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.

    The veteran playmaker has hit the scoresheet in four straight games and seven of the last eight, racking up five goals and 11 points over that stretch, Backstrom is now three points shy of his sixth straight 70-point campaign, but given his current form and the games left on the calendar, his fourth career 80-point season isn't out of the question.

    The assist came on a power play, giving Backstrom 23 such points in 2018-19. Wednesday saw the Swede finish with two points, something he's now done three times in his past five games. The 31-year-old is up to 16 goals and 63 points in 2018-19.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/19) Backstrom recorded two assists -- including one on the power-play -- and a plus-2 rating during Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Senators.

    Backstrom has been hot of late with two goals and seven points in his last seven games. The 31-year-old Swede is an elite playmaker and should finish with 50-plus assists for the sixth straight season if he can stay healthy.
