A Leaner David Backes

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

His head clear, his weight down, David Backes is eager for training camp to open in a couple of weeks, with his eye set on increasing his playing time and expanding his profile in the Bruins’ offense.

Losing 10 pounds has a way of liberating even a 12-year NHL veteran, one with 858 career games under his now-tightened belt.

“It’s a little different feel, and it takes some getting used to,” said Backes, who has slimmed down to roughly 210 pounds, a playing weight he hasn’t maintained since turning pro out of college in 2005.

“I’m a little leaner because the game is faster and I am trying to keep up with a lot of kids. Now it’s get on the ice, keep up, and be productive and be a good member of our team.”
