A very calm center who uses his vision well, Barkov has an excellent offensive game and good size. His very good passing and puckhandling combined with great hands and hockey sense make him a big offensive threat. He plays with high confidence and never seems to be under pressure. He has very good hockey sense and handles defensive duties well. Barkov is a creative center with a very solid overall package and the skillset to compensate for his below-average skating. As an 17-year-old, he was already playing in a scoring line in the Finnish league while also handling a lot of responsibility on both the powerplay and penalty-kill. (Matias Strozyk, 2013)

Father: Alexander Barkov
