The day after becoming the seventh most prolific point-scorer among Swedish-born skaters, Nicklas Backstrom tried to do his best so that his son could one day be a better player than him.
Backstrom took his tiny three-year-old son Vince out onto the ice before the Capitals’ optional skate Friday.

Vince completed a tape-to-tape pass to dad and did not need any help staying upright on his skates.

He has already come a long way, but are we surprised? I’m a no.
Next up, I need to see some one-timers from the office by Sergei Ovechkin, some dangles by Fedor Kuznetsov, and some clappers from the point by Kirill Orlov.
Man, the 2040 Capitals are going to be scary good aren’t they?
