Scouting report

Big things were expected from Barbashev after the Wildcats made him the first overall selection in the 2012 CHL Import Draft; and so far, it's safe to say he has more than lived up to expectations. Barbashev was eased into the league last year and went on to become a point-per-game producer with 62 points in 68 games; a number that will surely increase in 2013-14. After starting out on the wing, Barbashev has also seen time as a centre and has responded well to the increased responsibility of the position. The 6-foot Moscow native won't blow you away with his size, but his compete level and grit is refreshing and bodes well for his NHL hopes. With an above average skill level across the board, Barbashev projects nicely as surefire NHL player who should be at worst case a third line type player.
