The 27-year-old has had a tough time staying healthy during his career, but is coming off of a year where he played 82-games for the first time in his career. With two weeks before the start of the regular season, Backlund could be ready for opening night.

#Flames centre Mikael Backlund, who has been placed on injured reserve with an MCL sprain. He's out 4 to 6 weeks.

Backlund had 3 G and 1 A to go with a -1 in 8 games this season. He will likely miss the rest of the fantasy year so if you have him he is not worth keeping. Ben Street has been recalled from the AHL to replace Backlund.
