News

Backstrom finished the 2016-17 campaign with 23 goals and 86 points in 82 games.

Impact

The 28-year-old notched his highest point total since netting 101 in 2009-10. While his goal total improved modestly, Backstrom looked more comfortable shooting the puck this year than he has in a long while, and he continued to keep defenders honest. The talented playmaker dazzled as one of the league's best setup men, leading the league in power-play assists and trailing only Art Ross Trophy winner Connor McDavid for the overall league lead in helpers. The ultra-reliable Swedish pivot should be one of the first centers off the board in upcoming fantasy drafts.
