David Backes wants to prove himself this campaign after a tough first year with Boston.
Backes recorded just 38 points in 74 games in 2016-17. He has been working on his agility, quickness, and explosiveness during the off-season to better prepare for the speedier NHL. The 33-year-old power forward hopes that an increase in quickness will help him get in on the opposition more effectively and place him in better spots to contribute with his linemates.
