Barkov will most likely play with Haapala and Lehkonen. 2 95's and 1 undrafted 94. I don't think that Barkov racks alot of points. It would be good if he managed to put PPG and excellent two-way game.

Barkov has already moulded his game as pro ready against men. In junior games there it's at time total chaos and there is not much sence. It's funny to hear this but Barkov might be lost in Junior games.

He was the MVP of 4nation tournament at Sundvall so i hope im wrong. I'm guessing PPG rate at WJC with Lehkonen and Haapala with excellent two-way game. There is slight potential that he has offensive burst if there is any help from his linemates. If he has that he might be considered as #1 pick after WJC.
