Forward David Backes is hovering between the Anaheim Ducks roster and the reserve team, and he is seriously considering retiring at the end of the campaign.
But for now, the American wants to use every moment of the National Hockey League (NHL), and he thinks he is fortunate to develop in the best tour in the world.
Bacchus admitted in a video conference on Sunday: “This is a possibility.” But this is not certain. This is me for a year, and I have been saying that every game you play in this league is a gift, and every attendance you get is a gift. It’s really lucky to be able to participate in this league. “
Backes’ current contract will be terminated at the end of the 2020-2021 calendar, but it currently refuses to give a clear answer. He would rather wait until the dust settled before avoiding changing his mind.
He said: “I took down the notes of the people in front of me.” The emotions and work involved in a season make the process of making specific decisions difficult. I don’t want to offend Brett Favre because he has a great career, but he retired six or eight times and returned anyway. “
“When I say’enough’, I want it to be decisive without having to look back.”
Before the Dax matchup on Monday night, Bakers scored 248 goals, 561 points and 1,148 penalty points in 964 games, wearing the uniforms of the St. Louis Blues, Boston Bruins and Ducks.
When he hangs up his skates, he does not rule out playing different roles in the hockey world. “Of course I’m still passionate. If I don’t play [un autre rôle] I believe that sports are not impossible. “
