Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan, Backlund (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision versus Edmonton on Saturday, though coach Ryan Huska said, "my gut is he'll play."

Backlund has regressed from his career-high 56 points last season, recording 15 goals and 38 points in 75 contests this year. He is mired in a seven-game point drought. Backlund is expected to center Blake Coleman and Matthew Coronato, if he is able to play.
