News

Backstrom recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- during Friday's win over Buffalo.

Impact

Backstrom has been spending more even-strength time away from Alex Ovechkin this season, and the result has been a higher shot volume (2.15 shots per game) for the pivot. Additionally, with 24 points -- eight goals and 10 power-play points -- through 26 games, Backstrom's offensive numbers have remained strong. He's a high-end center in all fantasy settings.
