News: Backstrom stopped all 12 shots in 30 minutes in Monday's preseason loss to Winnipeg. Impact: Backstrom underwent season-ending abdominal and hip surgery in March, but looked back to full strength. He'll battle Darcy Kuemper and possibly Ilya Bryzgalov for the starting role, but has to be considered the favorite at this point.(RotoWire, )

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, )
