You do realize how old he is right?

He would be 18 and 1 month if he cracked an NHL roster.

Galchenyuk, for reference, was taken third overall and only made the roster arguably because it's Montreal. He has arguably more talent than Barkov and was almost 19 when he played his first NHL game.

Unless we see another lockout (just kidding) I wouldn't count on Barkov playing next year.
