Washington’s Backstrom Visiting Doctor For Neck Issue

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

Nicklas Backstrom is visiting a specialist in Michigan after suffering a neck injury while playing in the Kontinental Hockey League during the lockout, a Capitals spokesman confirmed.

Backstrom has not played since suffering the injury on Dec. 26 in a game for Dynamo Moscow. The Swedish center returned to North America on Sunday and was at the Capitals’ training facility in Arlington Monday, but has since traveled to Michigan.

“Nick and his agent informed us that they are being proactive with his injury and decided to visit a specialist prior to training camp,” Capitals spokesman Sergey Kocharov said. “Obviously, as you know until camp officially starts teams cannot perform physicals on any player.”
