Backes, 35, has three points in 16 games this season. He’s dressed for two of the Bruins’ last 13 games.
He missed 13 games in November with a concussion, which was at least his fourth since he came to Boston. He was in the fourth year of the five-year, $30 million contract the Bruins signed him to on July 1, 2016.
He’s been assigned to Providence.
