THIS IS THE GET IN THE GAME PODCAST
WITH SCOTT LINEBRINK
David Backes recently retired after a stellar 15-year career in the National Hockey League, where he became one of the fiercest competitors and most dependable teammates in the league. He spent 10 of those seasons with the St. Louis Blues, where he was named to three All-Star teams and served as captain.
Backes spent the final years of his NHL career with the Boston Bruins and Anaheim Ducks before announcing his retirement on Sept. 9. Backes was also a two-time Olympian, helping the U.S. to win a silver medal in 2010.
He joins the Get in the Game Podcast to reflect on his career, share his and his wife’s heart for service (particularly as it relates to animal activism), share how his faith impacted his career, and what he hopes his legacy will be.
(This interview was recorded prior to Backes’ retirement announcement.)
