News

Backstrom produced 20 goals and 70 points in the regular season and added a pair of goals and nine assists in the playoffs.

Impact

The 28-year-old also led the league with 27 power-play assists and was second in man advantage points with 30. A fixture in a deep and talented top six, the Swedish pivot is one of the more reliable playmakers in the league and should be one of the first centers off the board in drafts this fall.
