“I love the clean feeling I get from using plant based products.”
Swedish professional hockey player Mikael Backlund, is currently serving as an alternate captain for the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League. The former first round draft pick was taken by Calgary in 2007 and is the longest-serving forward for the Flames, being with the team now for a decade after debuting in his call-up from the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League in the 2008-09 season.
From a 19 year old blue-chip prospect to a now shutdown centre, Backlund has earned his role as a top NHL player and is recognized as such:
“Obviously, it’s a big day for our organization to get a guy who is going to help us win games for a long time locked up” – Flames Captain, Mark Giordano
“He can play any role. If you need shutdown, if you need offence … He can do both. He does it all, and I think there are not many centremen like that.” – Michael Frolik
“I use the Plant Strong Protein every morning in my smoothies, and I’m also loving the clean feeling I get from using the Vegan-Multis daily.” – Mikael Backlund
