Backstrom's phone manners

"The phone rings and we answer.

"It's Nicklas Backstrom, Washington Capitals," the voice at the other end says.

Interesting phone etiquette, we think to ourselves. Very polite. We couldn't remember the last time a player identified himself on the phone by also adding the team he played for. But perhaps the 21-year-old Swedish center feels compelled to do that since there's another player by the same name."

Good article about the Capitals, Backstrom and tonight's matchup with the Flyers from ESPN.


  1. That's so polite. And kinda sweet.

    "He's from Finland, though, so it's hard for me to say 'Hi' to him."
    Not as hard as rooting for you is for me... Just kidding.

    Sweden/Finland jokes aren't the same in English:/

  2. you mean he`s from sweden..
