Johan Backlund (born July 24, 1981) is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender who is currently a free agent. He previously played in two National Hockey League (NHL) games with the Philadelphia Flyers during the 2009–10 season.

Playing career[edit]

On March 26, 2009, Backlund signed a one-year two-way contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.[1]

After the 2009 training camp he was sent to the Adirondack Phantoms as Ray Emery and Brian Boucher were slated to be the Flyers goaltending tandem for the 2009-10 NHL season. Backlund was called up briefly in early October when Brian Boucher was injured but did not play before being returned to the Phantoms. After a moderate start he earned his first shutout on North American ice against the Syracuse Crunch on November 1, 2009.[2]

On March 27, 2010, Backlund made his NHL debut against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He allowed 2 goals on 24 shots, but had to exit the game after 2 periods, having reaggravated a groin injury. The Flyers lost the game 4-1, and he got the losing decision.[3]

On June 11, 2010, Backlund signed a two-year contract extension with the Flyers.[4]
