I'm personally more curious about Barkov's chances breaking into Finland's WHC roster next spring, as NHL players should be completely out of question. Are underage players even allowed to play in men's World Championships?
Yes, Granlund tried to crack into finnish WC roster in his draft year and Nino played for swiss in his draft year. I think that Barkov is going to get camp invite.
