Mikael Backlund Cloth Card

The World Cup might have an impact on the NHL's standings this coming season; the Dallas Stars are hardest-hit, what with Tyler Seguin, Radek Farsa and Ales Hemsky suffering injuries and Valeri Nichushkin signing in the KHL, and the Florida Panthers have lost Aaron Ekblad just weeks after granting him a new $60M contract.

The Calgary Flames have also lost a big piece of their offense when Mikael Backlund suffered a concussion after a crushing Sami Lepisto hit. He'd just had his best season in the NHL thus far, breaking the 20-goal and 40-point marks for the first time. He had been called upon by Team Sweden to replace none other than captain Henrik Zetterberg...

Here he is on card #CL-MBA from Panini's 2013-14 Totally Certified set and Clear Cloth sub-set:
It features a decent-sized game-worn jersey swatch, guaranteed by Panini.
