David Backes

From Minneapolis, David Backes played the majority of pro career with the St. Louis Blues, a squad he plated the first ten years of his sixteen NHL campaign with.

Backes scored 45 or more Points seven times with St. Louis, with a peak of 62 in 2010/11/.  The Center was not a first line player, but was a very good two-way performer, who had five consecutive Frank J. Selke Trophy finishes (2010-11 to 2011-14), and was the runner-up in 2011-12.  Backes would also be an All-Star in 2011.  He also played professionally for Boston and Anaheim, finishing his career with 561 NHL Points.

Backes also represented the United States multiple times, most notably as a member of the 2010 Olympic Team that won the Silver Medal.
