Marcus Johansson and Alex Ovechkin might be too banged up, but Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom is headed to the IIHF World Championship in France and Germany. Jonathan Lindqvist, an NHL correspondent for the ViaSat broadcasting network, broke the news on Twitter.
Hörni, fick precis höra att Nicklas Bäckström också kommer åka på VM.
Inte illa det.

Translated, Lindquist says, “I just heard Nicklas Backstrom is going to the World Championships. Not bad.”
When asked to confirm, Backstrom said in a text to Per Bjurman that “nothing has been decided yet” officially.
Backstrom led the Caps in playoff points, scoring six goals and seven assists in 13 playoff games.
