Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton says he will speak with Flames GM Darryl Sutter Thursday about where Mikael Backlund will play this season.
Hamilton says Backlund did not go back to Sweden with his world junior teammates, but is now in Calgary.
I will post the interview Wednesday morning.
Obviously Sutter's comments tonight on the Calgary radio station make it sound like a slam dunk that he will join the Rockets for the remainder of the season. Yet once again, according to Hamilton, nothing is official until Thursday.
