Nicklas Bäckström: “Snow shoveling is good for my wrists”

Nicklas Bäckström talked to some Swedish media outlets about the snowstorm that currently has a firm grip on Washington DC.

The storm has brought havoc to the East Coast and has forced the Washington Capitals to cancel their games against Anaheim on Friday and Pittsburgh on Sunday.

 

Nicklas Bäckström chatted with Expressen’s NHL writer Gunnar Nordström late on Friday. He said, “It’s snowing like hell here. There is no way that people will be able to go anywhere tomorrow.”

 

What will happen to the practice tomorrow?

 

“We have canceled practice. We will have to wait and see what will happen to the game that is scheduled for an early start on Sunday.”

 

You live in a house in Arlington. Do you have a snowblower or will you have to make do with a snow shovel?

“That’s correct. I will do it the old fashioned way and use a snow shovel. Everything to keep my wrists in peak condition.”

 

I suppose you are used to this from your winters back home in Gävle?

 

“Yes, absolutely. During the 1998 snowstorm back home in Gävle we could jump off the roof into the snow.”

 

Bäckström also talked to and shared some pictures from his home in Arlington with his hometown paper Arbetarbladet. “The whole city is at a standstill. I’m on my way out to do some more shoveling now.”
