CHRISTIAN BÄCKMAN  Sweden

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 63069

BIRTHYEAR 1980-04-28 BIRTHPLACEAlingsås, SWE
AGE 35 NATION Sweden
POSITION D SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 191 cm / 6'3" WEIGHT 94 kg / 207 lbs
YOUTH TEAM Alingsås HC STATUS Retired
NHL DRAFT 1998 round 1 #24 overall by St. Louis Blues


A skilled defenseman who has all the tools, including a booming shot. Plays a well-rounded game. On the downside, he has become rather inconsistent. Bäckman has also lost a lot of speed and agility due to knee injuries. Isn't a physical player for a guy his size.
