Backes is on pace to have the fewest PIMs he's ever had in a full season, and they've dropped every year for three years straight prior to this one. He's on pace for half the PIMs he had three years ago. He's a physical, emotional player...he's going to take penalties. It's obvious, though, that he's done quite a bit to improve that part of his game.

Not even sure why this is coming up now. He took a hooking penalty in the middle of a defensive zone scramble in front of the net. Big deal.
