Flames Cut Backlund

The Flames made three more cuts on Saturday, including Mikael Backlund, who was sent back to his European team in Sweden for the year. Backlund had a lot of expectations put upon him in training camp, but he failed to perform on a consistent basis and will not make this team.

Backlund, a Selection Sheet player in Box 9, will not be participating in any pool action this year, so you will want to skip him in the picking process.

Also getting cut from the Flames was goaltender Matt Keetley and forward John Armstrong.
