Mikael Backlund has skated for the last three days but there is no timetable for his return from abdominal surgery.
Backlund has played in only 11 games this season and has a goal and three helpers. "The whole area around my abdominal wall has been a little messed up," Backlund said on Friday. "My right groin. My lower abdominal wall. So it wasn’t just the abs when they looked into it." Backlund also said that the surgery was not a sports hernia surgery. Dec 20 - 7:13 AM
