David Backes is one of the three finalists for the Selke Trophy.
Fantasy owners know Backes for his ability to play a physical game while still contributing offensively. He recorded 226 hits and 72 blocked shots in 82 games. The Blues also were a great team defensively, allowing just 26.7 shots per contest. The biggest knock against Backes, as far as voting for this Trophy is concerned, is the fact that his faceoff winning percentage was a lukewarm 48.6.
