Backlund’s Swedish Club Expected His Return After WJC

From TSN:

According to the Calgary Herald, Swedish club Vasteras was under the assumption that Backlund would rejoin them after the World Junior Hockey Championship.

‘‘Mikael Backlund has not been given permission to play for another club,’’ Vasteras official Anders Eklund told the Swedish media. ‘‘There is nothing in his agreement with us that allows him to play for a club in North America and we don’t think it’s right that he did this without communicating with us.

‘‘We are very disappointed in Backlund’s conduct in this case and do not think he acted honestly.’

Backlund suited up for the Calgary Flames last week. Read on.

Update 3:05pm ET: Here’s the original report in the Calgary Herald.
