I watched him play a couple weeks ago and I came away with an impression that he looked like he'd be a good, not great, player. He was pushed around a lot, but like all young guys he needs to get bulk on his frame (which at 6'3" will be solid when he fills out). His stickhandling was very good and I thought his best asset was his vision. I specifically focused on him and he seemed to be constantly finding open space and sneaking away from defenders.

Also, they were playing Kingston and he made Gudbranson absolutely livid the entire game. Gudbranson kept going out of his way to try and destroy him, and at one point failed, took himself out of position and caused the tying goal. Scheifele then scored in the shootout and Barrie won.

Take this with a grain of salt considering I've seen him once, but he looks like a guy that could fit on a 2nd line in the future. I really enjoyed his play.
