Nicklas Backstrom on his daughter

From a translated interview:

You have a girl that’s how old now?

She’s one year old.

Then you don’t always get to sleep as you want to. How is that going?

It’s going pretty good. Our daughter actually sleeps good at night, as well as during the days. It’s just great, it’s nice to be able to go home and think about something completely different than hockey. I need to step away from the game for a few hours and instead spend the time with my daughter and girlfriend. It means a lot to me.

Your daughter doesn’t care how the game ended.

Exactly. That’s what’s so great about it, that you can play with something else for awhile.

Do you ever pregame nap together?

We did that when she was younger but..

Now she won’t lay there for two hours?

No, she can’t really sleep with me anymore. She is sleeping in her own bed now.
