Calgary Flames center Mikael Backlund is being perused by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford is reportedly negotiating with the Flames in regards to Backlund, a former first-round pick who’s never quite panned out in Calgary.

Darren Dreger is reporting:

Teams are calling about Mikael Backlund, no surprise there, specifically the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes are looking for a third line centre as well as a puck moving defenceman. Carolina has made an offer on Backlund but there’s no fit there just yet. The Flames also need an age-comparable player in terms of their return.
