The guy is putting up some pretty impressive numbers with the Medicine Hat Tigers so far this season at the tender age of 17!! Has there been another 17 yr old D-man in recent years to put up these kinds of numbers, with Barker's size at 6'3, toughness and skating ability? I mean, what isn't there to like about this kid?? To me, any weaknesses are heavily outweighed by his strengths! To date Barker is at 19 goals, 41 assists, 60 pts and 101 pims. Throw in a +16 and thats a pretty impressive package. The kid has blown away the numbers put up by Coburn, Phaneuf and Seabrooke last and they were all Top 15 selections. Barker is a sure bet for Top 3 in this years NHL Draft and I wouldn't be surprised if he went #2 overall to Columbus.
