  • Bruins' David Backes: Producing more often

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/18) Backes finished Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens with five hits.

    While he failed to register a point Saturday, Backes delivered his highest hit total (five) since Dec. 14. Backes has heated up nicely lately, as evidenced by his 10 points in the last eight games. That said, the American veteran is a long way off the pace of his usual 200-plus hits and 20-plus goals, but there's room for him in most every format while he's hitting the scoresheet with regularity.

    Bruins' David Backes: Fourth straight two-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/17) Backes delivered two power-play assists in Saturday's 5-0 win over Ottawa.

    Most importantly, this was Backes' fourth consecutive two-point game. His game is so hot you could fry an egg on it.

    Bruins' David Backes: Scores twice in shootout loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/29/17) Backes potted a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to Washington.

    Backes gave his team a 1-0 lead in the first period and a 3-2 lead in the third, but both were ultimately squandered. The veteran power forward is playing his best hockey of the season to close out the calendar year, with multi-point outings in each of his past three appearances.

    Bruins' David Backes: Racks up two points against Ottawa

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) Backes scored his fifth goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's win over Ottawa.

    Backes was also credited with five shots on goal in the victory. The second-line winger has had a disappointing season, but he's starting to heat up with three goals and seven points in his last five games. A lethal combination of physical play and scoring ability makes him worth owning in many fantasy settings. Considering he missed almost all of November due to a battle with diverticulitis, Backes could be worth scooping up if he continues this strong play. Keep an eye out.

    Bruins' David Backes: Sets up two goals in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/24/17) Backes registered two assists -- including a man-advantage helper -- in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

    A veteran forward known for his versatility, Backes' 19:07 of ice time was close to a season high, and he now has a serviceable eight points (four goals, four assists) in 12 games since Nov. 29, when he courageously returned after undergoing surgery to remove part of his colon. While the American hasn't been counted on as much in Boston following 10 seasons with the Blues, he remains a physical, power-play presence who should finish around a half-point per game by the end of the 2017-18 campaign -- his second with the B's.
