      Backlund (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

      Backlund missed Monday's game in Vancouver with a lower-body injury but was on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate and will be a game-time decision. Backlund skated with Milan Lucic and Dillon Dube this morning, so he is a less appealing DFS option without Andrew Mangiapane on his wing.

      Backlund (lower-body) is questionable for Thursday’s season opener.

      Backlund was on the ice for Wednesday’s practice but remains a question mark heading into the first game of the year. Monitor his status during tomorrow’s morning skate and expect Sam Bennett to replace him on the second line if he doesn’t play.

      Backlund will return to Calgary after suffering a concussion at the World Cup of Hockey.

      Backlund suffered a concussion while representing Team Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey and he will return to Calgary where he will be reevaluated this week. The 27-year-old has had a tough time staying healthy during his career, but is coming off of a year where he played 82-games for the first time in his career. With two weeks before the start of the regular season, Backlund could be ready for opening night.
