Observations:

 

June 2014 - Ivan Barbashev was selected by the St. Louis Blues at 33rd overall in the 2nd round. Originally projected to be a 1st round pick, Barbashev managed to slip to the Blues in the early second round. Barbashev projects to be a playmaking winger with great vision who will be strong on the puck. -Kevin Won

 

 

 

February 2014 – Barbeshev is a lanky playmaking winger with a playing style that revolves around his high-end ability to read the ice and maintain possession through good puck protection practices. Handling the puck and setting up teammates originate from strong hockey instincts and helps Barbeshev in his responsible defensive game as well.  The Moncton Wildcat forward has been impressive in his board battles and flair for walking off the half-boards wiring a shot on net. Brendan Ross

 

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

Barbashev is a player who projects very well to the NHL with his large rangy frame and strong two way acumen. Projects as a top six winger
