Panthers' Barkov Picks Up An Assist In Loss

News: Aleksander Barkov tallied an assist in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: The second-overall pick in 2013 has improved steadily over last year, picking up 34 points (15 goals and 19 assists) while improving his shooting percentage to 12.5 percent and logging heavy ice time for a forward. The 19-year-old still has plenty of room to grow and the chemistry with his teammates will only improve as they continue to play together. Aleksander Barkov is a great add in dynasty leagues, but has less value for the rest of this season.

Panthers' Barkov Nabs Two Points In Rout

News: Aleksander Barkov tallied a goal and an assist Thursday in a 6-1 whipping of the Hurricanes.
Analysis: After a three-game point streak, he fell off the scoresheet in two straight before bouncing back Thursday. With only 35 points on the season, Aleksander Barkov hasn't yet fully found his stride, but the 19-year-old is certainly making progress, and he's got some of the highest upside in the league.

Panthers' Barkov: Three-Game Streak And Warming Up

News: Aleksander Barkov's point streak stands at three games and five points (two goals, three assists) after he potted two goals, one of which came on the power play, in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: He has nine points in his last 10 games after getting 22 in his first 54. It's easy to forget this guy is still a teenager -- his best is clearly ahead. Take advantage of this spurt and plan for bigger and better things next season.

Barkov Tallies Two Helpers For Panthers

News: Aleksander Barkov notched two assists, a plus-2 rating and two PIM in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Leafs.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov hasn't grown his game very much this year, but he is on a nice late-season run, having picked up five points in the last five games. He and the Panthers will face a much tougher Canadian -- or should we say Canadien -- team their next time out, though, so daily leaguers may not want to bank on this trend continuing Saturday.

Panthers' Barkov Scores In A Loss On Tuesday

News: Aleksander Barkov found the back of the net for the 12th time this season in a 3-2 loss on Tuesday to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov has three points in his last five games while posting a plus-2. The 19-year-old logged to most minutes of any forward, playing 19:50 while winning 10-of-16 face-offs. The former second-overall pick has plenty of value down the line and is starting to realize his potential while translating that in to on-ice production. If he can continue scoring points, he has value across all leagues, but he is a great find in dynasty leagues if you can still grab him.

Panthers' Barkov Nets Game Winner Against Jets

News: Aleksander Barkov scored his 11th goal of the season—the game-winner—in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Jets.
Analysis: The former second overall pick matched his point total from last season with this goal. Aleksander Barkov has 11 goals and 13 assists on the season while playing 17:12 a night. He has shown plenty of promise and playing alongside Jaromir Jagr and Jonathan Huberdeau will only help his scoring numbers go up. He is still a risky fantasy play as the Panthers don't score that much, but he is more than worth a roster spot in dynasty leagues and can help in deeper formats as well.

Panthers' Barkov Tallies Assist In Win

News: Aleksander Barkov added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders.
Analysis: The talented 19-year-old has 23 points on the season and is logging heavy ice time in the process. The light-scoring Panthers have given the second overall pick in 2013 every opportunity to succeed, having him pivot on the second line with a good pair of line-mates in Jaromir Jagr and Jonathan Huberdeau. Aleksander Barkov won't light up the stat sheet on a consistent basis, but has all of the skills necessary to go on a hot streak. As he gels with Jagr, look for his point production to tick upward.

Panthers' Barkov Nets Goal In Win

News: Aleksander Barkov potted his 10th goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Lightning.
Analysis: The goal gives Aleksander Barkov his 22nd point of the season, just two points off of last year's total. The 19-year-old's value is limited to deeper or dynasty formats, but he should continue to develop into a reliable option in the future.

Panthers' Barkov Nets Ninth Of Season

News: Aleksander Barkov netted the Panthers' only goal in a 4-1 loss to the Senators on Saturday night. It was his ninth of the season which established a new career mark.
Analysis: He's still finding his way in the NHL, but his future remains bright. Remember -- he's still only 19 years old. He has four points in his last nine games, so his current year value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

Barkov Records Assist in Panthers' Loss

News: Aleksander Barkov picked up an assist on Nick Bjugstad's game-tying goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Ever since his three-point outburst against the Red Wings, Aleksander Barkov has been relatively quiet. This was just his second assist in the 10 games since grabbing two against the Red Wings. The former second overall pick isn't a consistent enough scoring option to merit a roster spot except in the deepest of leagues.

Panthers' Barkov Nets Seventh Thursday

News: Aleksander Barkov kicked off the scoring in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Kings with his seventh goal of the season.
Analysis: After turning in mostly disappointing production in his first season and a half in the NHL, Aleksander Barkov has finally seemed to settle in for the Panthers. The former No. 2 overall pick has provided nine points over his last 10 games.

Panthers' Barkov: First Multi-Point Game Of Season

News: Aleksander Barkov scored a power-play goal and added two assists (one on the power play) in Tuesday's loss to Detroit.
Analysis: Amazingly, this is the first time all season that Aleksander Barkov's had more than one point in a game. Pretty stunning for a guy who's played such heavy minutes. But he'd been showing signs of a breakout even before the All-Star break, as Barkov has now successfully found his way onto the scoresheet in seven of the last nine games.

Panthers' Barkov Ready To Go

News: Aleksander Barkov (illness) is slated to return to action Tuesday against the Jets, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov, who missed the team's past two games, had notched three points over his previous four games before being sidelined.

Panthers' Barkov (Illness) Out Sunday

News: Aleksander Barkov (illness) won't return to the lineup Sunday against the Oilers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov was a late scratch Friday due to flu-like symptoms, and skipped Saturday's practice as well. He will miss Sunday's contest as well, meaning his next chance to return will come Tuesday against the Jets.

Florida's Barkov (Illness) Skips Saturday Skate

News: Aleksander Barkov (illness) didn't skate during Saturday's practice, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov was a late scratch for Friday's game against the Flames due to the flu, and appears he wasn't feeling quite healthy enough a day later, either. The Panthers will check in on his condition Sunday morning, but at the moment, his chances of being available the game later that evening against the Oilers don't appear to be promising.

Panthers' Barkov Will Not Play Friday

News: Aleksander Barkov (illness) was a late scratch Friday and will not play against the Flames, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: Both Aleksander Barkov and teammate Dmitry Kulikov are reportedly dealing with the flu, and both will miss Friday's contest against Calgary. Vincent Trocheck will slot into the Panthers' lineup in Barkov's absence.

Panthers' Barkov Nets Third Goal

News: Aleksander Barkov registered the game-winning goal and won eight of 11 faceoffs in Thursday's triumph over the Canucks.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov finished plus-3 on the evening, as he found himself on the ice for all three of the Panthers' goals. The 19-year-old has points in three of his last four games, but it's somewhat discouraging that a modest streak like that actually represents his hottest stretch of the season. Much more was expected from Barkov at this point than the eight points in 29 games he's provided.

Panthers Activate Barkov From Injured Reserve

News: The Panthers activated Aleksander Barkov (hand) from injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov is ready to return to action after missing the last two weeks due to his hand injury. He's plenty talented, but with just four points in 19 games this season, he's not much of a fantasy factor just yet.

Panthers' Barkov Cleared To Play

News: Aleksander Barkov (hand) has been cleared to play, Matthew DeFranks of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov was expected back over the weekend, but wasn't quite ready. It sounds like he's a good bet to suit up for Tuesday's matchup with the Capitals for now, but we won't know for sure until we get another update after Tuesday's morning skate.

Panthers' Barkov Likely To Remain Out Friday

News: Aleksander Barkov (hand) isn't expected to rejoin the Florida lineup for either of the team's two weekend games against the Red Wings or Sabres, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov did join the team for the trip north and took part in Thursday's practice, but was still icing his hand after the session, a sign that there's still some lingering pain. He seems to have turned his sights to a return Tuesday against the Capitals.

Panthers' Barkov Expected To Practice Thursday

News: Aleksander Barkov (hand) is expected to return to practice Thursday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov, who has missed the previous four games, will meet the team in Detroit in an attempt to prove his hand has healed. Since he's been out for over a week, it's difficult to say if Barkov would immediately reenter the lineup Friday against the Red Wings, even if he looks good in practice the day before.

Panthers Place Barkov On IR

News: The Panthers placed Aleksander Barkov (hand) on IR Monday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The move was retroactive to a week ago, so he'll be eligible to return as soon as he's ready. The center has already been ruled out for Monday's game against the Blues, but could get back in the lineup Friday against the Red Wings.

Panthers' Barkov (Hand) Out Monday

News: Aleksander Barkov (hand) will not fly with the team to St. Louis for Monday's game, George Richards of the Miami Hearld reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov was expected to miss just a couple games with a swollen hand as the result of blocking a shot, but that will extend to at least a three game absence. Coach Gerard Gallant indicated that he could join the team Friday in Detroit, however.

Panthers' Barkov (Hand) Scratched Saturday Night

News: Aleksander Barkov (hand) will not play Saturday against the Sabres, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Aleksander Barkov was able to resume skating Friday, but it appears likely he'll miss another game or two due to the swelling in his hand.

Panthers' Barkov Skates Friday

News: Aleksander Barkov (hand) resumed skating Friday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The Panthers indicated Thursday that Aleksander Barkov was expected to miss a couple of games with the injury, so it still seems unlikely that he'll play Saturday against the Sabres. He may need to get a full-contact practice in before the Panthers sign off on his return to the lineup.
