Niklas Backstrom went into the severity of the elbow injury he's been dealing with.
Backstrom had nerve damage to the point where he couldn't move some of his fingers. It meant that he couldn't so much as hold a phone with his right hand. He had surgery for his injury in May. Minnesota was expected to buy out Backstrom this summer, but the Wild can't due to his injury. Backstrom isn't expected to be cleared to play until training camp at the earliest, which means that he might end up on the long-term injured reserve list instead. Jul 7 - 9:49 AM
