Aleksander Barkov is eligible for the upcoming NHL draft and is currently leading his team Tappara Tampere of the Finnish elite league with 27 points in 26 games, quite the accomplishment for a player 9 months away from his 18th birthday. I doubt he knocks off Mackinnon for first overall but Barkov is making a case. Below is a link of a wicked pass from a game a few days ago preceeded by a great back check and transition, this is a clip that imo defines what Barkov is and can do as a player, enjoy!
Fyi - he is wearing a gold helmet and a blue jersey
