Hey Oan - I've been impressed with Barkov even since seeing him live in Calgary for the 2012 WJCs. He showed such poise and so much potential as Sep/95 born player. I chatted with him as well - nice young kid. Kind of wish he would have had an interpreter for the interview.
We actually had a laugh between us. We were just talking about how he was the youngest player to ever score a goal for Finland at the World Juniors (and not youngest player ever how many reporters were mistaken) when a well known prospects/hockey reporter/journalist (I won't say who out of respect) piggy-backed on my one-on-one and said "So Alex, how does it feel to be the youngest ever player to score at the World Juniors." Alex coolly and assertively responded: "I am not the youngest. That was Kazakhstan's Viktor Alexandrov." I couldn't help but have about a km wide smile.
