On the day Nicklas Backstrom arrived to DC, Warrior Hockey released a commercial filmed while he was in Finland. Sebastian Aho of the Carolina Hurricanes was also in the commercial. 

After arriving in the District today, Backstrom is about to embark on his 11th season and isn’t showing signs of aging anytime soon. Coming off a season where he scored 23 goals, his second best scoring and point production, he hopes to be a leader to the new guys. He’s already shown great confidence in Christian Djoos. The Swedish trio will be complete with Andre Burakovsky’s arrival. He left Sweden today.
