Nicklas Backstrom C WAS Dec 07 '78
Nicklas Backtrom (illness) and Jason Chimera (undisclosed) are both expected to play Tuesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Both players participated in Tuesday's morning skate and said they planned to play against Carolina. Chimera has been skating on the Caps' top line, but Backstrom is far more fantasy relevant. Fantasy owners should feel free to use both players as they normally would.
