 Aleksander Barkov is an incredibly cerebral player. He plays an impressive two-way game, possesses quick hands, a high hockey IQ, and a deceptively hard and accurate wrist shot. His high playmaking ability and smooth skating allow him to generate offense, and his ability to maintain possession of the puck allows him and his line-mates to sustain that offense.
