Backes is eligible to return to the Bruins lineup on Saturday.

Backes has finished serving his three-game suspension and is set to return to the Bruins lineup vs. the Sabres. Backes brings very little offence to the table at this point in his career, having picked up just 10 points (3G / 7A) in 33 games this season.

Backes will miss at least a couple of games with a leg laceration.

Backes needed 18 stitches to close up a wind that was caused by a skate blade in Saturday’s win over the Lightning. Bruins’ GM Don Sweeney confirmed that Backes isn’t “day-to-day” as they wait to see how the gash heals. The recently signed Ryan Donato could make his NHL debut in Backes’ place on Monday.

Backes left Tuesday’s game after being hit by Nick Ritchie but was back on the ice this morning, which suggests that he’ll be ready to go on Thursday. Backes has cooled off considerably recently, picking up just two assists in his last eight games.
