News

Backstrom scored a goal and added an assist during Wednesday's win over Philadelphia.

Impact

The veteran center is up to 18 goals and 63 points through 59 games and continues to be one of the most reliable scorers in the league. He's a set-and-forget asset in seasonal leagues, and Backstrom is also often cheaper than he should be in daily contests.
