    The kid is lighting it up with Medicine Hat so far in the WHL and is also 6'3 and 200+lbs.

    He had 2 goals and 1 assist tonight in WHL play and for the season is sitting at 14 goals 24 assists 38pts 71pims in 43 games.

    Is this guy a shoe in for the Canadian WJT next year in North Dakota or will he playing U18 tourney's in April and August?

    Cam Barker is a very good player. He plays a similar style to Rob Blake I would say. He has great offensive skills and is pretty solid defensively too. He has an amazing shot. It's hard and low. If he's not playing in the NHL( I don't think he should) he will be lock to make Team Canada. I think he should have been invited this year.

    Does he play very physically, or not so much?

    He does play physical. Nothing like Dion Phaneuf but he does hit and occasionaly he fights.

    I've watched Barker play a couple times this year, and he will surprise people in June. He will go very, very high. I personally don't think 2nd overall is out of the question depending on the team.
