Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom met with the media for the final time this season on Sunday morning. He spoke about dealing with his lingering hip injury and potential decisions ahead.
“”We’ll see what’s going to happen [this summer]. We have some decisions to make. Those decisions aren’t finalized yet, so we’ll take it day by day,” said Backstrom.
“The hip’s not going to be 100%. That’s something we all know. Some days are good. Some days are less good. That’s just life.”
Backstrom added, “the best thing I want to do is play hockey, and that’s my life. Obviously I want to be back. I want to be back to normal, not worrying about this. We’ll see what’s going to happen. Nothing is finalized yet.”
Backstrom, 34, missed the first 35 games of the season in order to rehabilitate his hip.
