Niklas Backstrom feels healthy heading into training camp and he wants to recapture his past form.
"Backy's kind of been the forgotten soldier right now," coach Mike Yeo said Monday. "Nobody even talks about him. He's won a lot of hockey games for us, there's been many games where I know he stole games for us. He's a guy who can come in and do that again this year. I think he'll be motivated." If he can put his injury woes behind him then Backstrom could be a sneaky pick late in drafts as a depth goalie option. Sep 17 - 12:40 PM
