Mikael Backlund has been surpassed on the depth chart this season.
The Flames have a surprisingly number of good centers this season and with Backlund out of action indefinitely, he may have a tough time returning to a top-two line role. He was considered the best center heading into the season, but Sean Monahan and Markus Granlund have impressed (Granlund is playing well alongside Johnny Gaudreau) and with Sam Bennett in the wings, Backlund could be in tough. Backlund had a goal and four points in 11 games before his injury. Dec 14 - 6:16 AM
