David Backes is hoping to be a bigger factor in 2017-18 than he was in his first season with the Bruins.
Backes scored 17 goals and 38 points in 74 contests last season. That was somewhat disappointing, but the 33-year-old is entering the 2017-18 campaign after undergoing a different style of summer training. "I’d be training more like a football player with heavy weights in previous summers, but this year it was a lot more functional, speed-training with a lot more work done on the ice than previously," Backes said. "I think it’s partly because I’m getting older, and partly because the game itself is evolving into a faster, quicker, less chipping it in and grinding it out kind of game. While I still love that part of the game and hopefully it can still be incorporated, you also need to be able to get up and down the ice, win races to the puck and be able to make plays. I tried to incorporate training with that in mind." It'll be interesting to see what kind of an impact that has on his play, but we wouldn't count on him recording much more than 40 points.
