Flames F Mikael Backlund surprised by trade speculation

Flames forward Mikael Backlund is surprised that his named is being mentioned in recent trade speculation. 

However, Backlund conceded that it's just part of being a pro athlete and admitted he's not off to the best of starts in Calgary.

In 22 games this season, Backlund has scored two goals and five assists, with a minus-six rating and 34 shots on goal.

The Flames will adopt Brian Burke's pre-Christmas trade policy, which means Backlund could be moved at some point prior to Dec. 9.
