Exclamation [Video] Backlund - 16/17 Highlights


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lizBLfeg0I

Not surprising that the video for arguably our best and most consistent forward last year winds up being so long. I didn't realize until making this video how many OT goals Backlund was in on.

vs BUF = Mono from Johnny
vs ARZ = Frolik does it alone
@ ARZ = Dougie from Johnny
@ OTT = Johnny from Backlund
@ NJ = Backlund from Brodie and Frolik

@ NSH = Gio from Monahan and Johnny
vs LA = Brodie from Backlund
vs DET = Backlund from Frolik and Gio

@ STL = Monahan from Gio and Frolik

Though my favourite subtle play is probably his no-look pass to Dougie backdoor at 24:18!

In 81 games: 22 goals + 31 assists = 53 points, 41 blocks, 57 takeaways.
In 4 playoff games: 1 goal + 2 assists = 3 points.

Videos Completed This Summer:
Dougie is up next!

Backlund is the reason I still have tons of faith in Bennett. It's amazing how integral #11 is to the success of the Flames.

Yep, Backlund was drafted 10 years ago and has reached an elite status just the last couple of years.

I'd forgotten about that OT winner against the Devils. Man, what a great possession/cycling shift!

I've been a long time lurker and never said it, but wow AC thank you so much for putting this together.

I always look forward to the highlight compilations you put together.

The best part of a long off season.

I am so glad this organization didn't give up on Backs.
Same reason we should stay patient on Bennett. I would rather the Flames bank on him reaching his potential than give up on him to early. Even if he tops out as a third liner. His potential is to high

Yep, I take a frame and Photoshop my version onto a transparent PNG which I then overlay on top. Gets a little complicated for transitions between clips.
