  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Rings up overtime goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/23/19) Backlund lit the lamp and added an assist in Tuesday's overtime win against the Hurricanes.

    Backlund hauled in a pass from Elias Lindholm and zips past a defenseman before juking out Petr Mrazek for the win. This is Backlund's second straight two-point game and his third in the last five, The 29-year-old pivot now has 29 points and a whopping plus-27 rating through 47 games.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Two goals to close out 2018

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/1/19) Backlund scored twice Monday, as the Flames dropped eight goals to San Jose's five-spot on New Year's Eve.

    Backlund potted the first two goals for the Flames, but as you can see from the barnburner of a score, there would be plenty more where that came from. The Swede has a cushy role as a second-line center insulated by gritty scoring winger Matthew Tkachuk and two-way virtuoso Michael Frolik.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Not quite ready to play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/15/18) Despite practicing Friday, Backlund (undisclosed) will not play against host Minnesota in Saturday's matinee, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

    Backlund remains with the team for a three-game road trip that wraps up in Dallas on Tuesday, which suggests that the 11th-year pivot is closing in on his return. He'll presumably be reevaluated ahead of Sunday's clash with the Blues.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Will travel with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/18) Backlund (undisclosed) will join the Flames for their upcoming three-game road trip, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Backlund has already missed three games due to his undisclosed issue, but he figures to rejoin the lineup before the team returns to Calgary on Dec. 20 versus the Lightning. Once Backlund is cleared to return, Alan Quine may be the odd man out and head back to AHL Stockton.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Return date unclear

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/18) Backlund (undisclosed) will not play Wednesday evening against host Philadelphia, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    This news is corroborated by the fact that Backlund remains on injured reserve. Alan Quine has been filling in for 2007's first-round (24th overall) draft pick, though it's anything but an even exchange, as Backlund is one of the team's most most prominent special teams contributors. At this point, it's anyone's guess when he'll be back in tow.
