  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Will use offseason to rest ailing back

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/17) Backlund will not play with Team Sweden at the 2017 IIHF World Championships due to recurring back pain, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

    Backlund only missed one game out of a possible 86 during the Flames' 2016-17 campaign, so it's hard to fault the 27-year-old for wanting to take some time off the ice. Despite the back issue, he's fully expected to be ready for Calgary's offseason programs leading up to the 2017-18 season.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Two points not enough Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/18/17) Backlund tacked on two assists -- including one on the power play -- Monday, but the Flames ended up losing Game 3 to the Ducks in overtime, 5-4.

    Backlund's passing skills helped the Flames take a 4-1 lead in the second period, only for Calgary's club to allow four unanswered goals to the utter shock and dismay of the home crowd. The Swede seems to be pulling his weight with three points in as many games during this quarterfinal round, but the Flames are in a 3-0 series deficit, so fantasy owners in playoff pools may not be able to use Backlund much longer.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Buries shorthanded goal in Game 2 defeat

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/17) Backlund scored while shorthanded in Saturday's Game 2 loss to the Ducks.

    It was a great individual effort from Backlund, who fired five shots on goal in the loss. The Flames may be trailing 2-0 in the series, but Backlund set a career high in goals this year and could play a key role when the series shifts back to Calgary. The two-way center is skating alongside Matthew Tkachuk and will need to improve on his lackluster career playoff totals for the Flames to make a comeback.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Dishes for score in home win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/17) Backlund managed a primary assist on the game's first goal by Michael Frolik on Friday. The Flames beat the Stars at home, 3-1.

    It's been an outstanding year for Backlund, as his helper put him in a tie for the team's points lead at 49, sharing the gaudy total with wunderkind Johnny Gaudreau. But that's not all for Backlund, as he reigns supreme on the power play with seven goals and 15 points on the man advantage to complement seven game-winners. He's cruising past career-high marks in several categories, so hopefully he keeps it up with the fantasy playoffs right around the corner.

    Flames' Mikael Backlund: Continues to roll along

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/17) Backlund posted his 20th goal of the season with a plus-1 rating in Friday's 3-2 overtime win against the Red Wings.

    The tally was the game-winner in overtime. Backlund has posted five goals with seven points with a plus-5 rating over his past six games. He also has managed four goals with 10 points over his past nine games against Eastern Conference foes. Backlund will look to keep up the good work against the Islanders on Sunday afternoon.
