News: Backstrom was a full participant in the first practice and scrimmage of Minnesota's training camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: Backstrom underwent season-ending abdominal and hip surgery in March, but looks back to full strength. After a poor 2013-14 season, (3.02 GAA and .899 save percentage) Backstrom enters camp as the likely No. 1 goalie with Josh Harding out several months due to a broken foot. However, he'll face competition from Darcy Kuemper and possibly Ilya Bryzgalov for the starting role. The goalie situation with the Wild could be in flux again this season.(RotoWire, )
