Mikael Backlund did not practice with the Flames on Friday as he suffered an abdominal strain a few weeks ago.
Do not expect to see Backlund on the ice when the Flames start their pre-season schedule on Sunday. "I just talked to my agent (Mark MacKay) the other day and he said he had this problem for a full year when he played, and I don't want to go through that," Backlund said. "It's important that I stay patient and don't rush anything so that when I get back to playing, I'm going to be healthy for the rest of the year and it's not going to bug me. I don't want that to happen. I want to take my time now instead of have setbacks later in the season." Backlund was the Flames top centerman last season but his future role is likely to be on the second line as Sean Monahan will eventually take over the role. Look for Backlund to pick up 15-20 goals and 40-45 points in 2014-15. Sep 20 - 7:04 AM
