NucknAsia Posted June 18, 2022 Share Posted June 18, 2022 (edited) Looks like Nicklas Backstrom may be done - opening up another potential suitor for Horvat or Miller should the Canucks decide to move one of them. He's 34 turning 35 this year, and has had the same hip surgery that Kesler underwent in 2019 (and never played again). Jovo had the same surgery, returned, played 39 games and then retired. So clearly its a very serious repair for hockey players, and given his age, and apparently what often takes at least a year of rehab, I would be surprised if he comes back. https://twitter.com/frank_seravalli/status/1538268431052578817?s=20&t=8JJS7hWN6l0f-L9cvwnHWg Do we like any Caps prospects?
