Capitals place center Nicklas Backstrom on long-term injury

"Over time, over the years, it's been grinding it a little bit,'' Backstrom said earlier this month. "When that happens, you just kind of have to reset and build it up again and that is where we are at. (It) takes longer than you hope, but that is just progress: Just part of building it up again and making it strong again.''

"I have no timetable here,'' Backstrom said when training camp initially opened. "We're just going to listen to the body and go slow. We'll see what happens. Hopefully I'll be back skating soon.''
