A final start?

Former Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom will start for Calgary on Saturday night in the Wild's regular season finale.


Backstrom turned 38 in February and many have speculated if Minnesota's franchise leader in wins will retire at seasons end.

The start would be quite ironic considering Backstrom's first ever start was in St. Paul. However his final start would come with a different team.
