25-Year-Old Left WingLW
St. Louis Blues
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Barbashev has settled into his role as a depth player for St. Louis nicely, killing penalties and bringing some energy while also chipping in a limited amount of offense. The young Russian finished with five goals and 12 points in 38 games a year ago, which prorated over the course of a typical 82-game season is roughly in line with what we saw from him during the previous two campaigns. Barbashev should flirt with 100 hits in 2021-22, but his low shot total and lack of power-play time make the 25-year-old a clear fade in most fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Extends point streak with helper
LWSt. Louis Blues
October 25, 2021
Barbashev registered an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 3-0 win over the Kings.
ANALYSIS
Barbashev has gotten on the scoresheet in all five games so far, logging three goals and two helpers. The 25-year-old has added a plus-6 rating, 10 shots on net, 10 hits and two PIM. His line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Robert Thomas has given the Blues three legitimate scoring lines as part of a deep offense for the Central Division's leading team.

Barbashev has claimed a full-time role in the NHL over the last two seasons, accruing 25 goals and 27 assists over 149 games. The 25-year-old typically doesn't stray from the bottom six; he averaged just 13:27 of ice time per game last year. It would be surprising if he received a promotion this year after the addition of Mike Hoffman, so Barbashev's main contributions will come in a checking role.
Barbashev teetered on the edge of a full-time NHL role during the 2017-18 season, and he finally secured it in 2018-19 with 14 goals and 26 points -- doubling his previous career highs -- in 80 NHL games. The 23-year-old also played in 25 games during the postseason and is considered one of the team's most effective penalty killers. Barbashev was the Blues' restricted free agent to sign this offseason, and he'll be called upon again in a bottom-six role. He has proven he has the skill to eclipse the 30 points, and another summer of development could push him to that mark.
The 22-year-old forward has been easing into NHL play and even appeared on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko for a few games last season, which helped Barbashev notch seven goals and six helpers in 53 contests. However, Barbashev will have extra competition to stick with the big club after the slew of offseason moves brought substantial depth to St. Louis. If he makes the team out of camp, expect him to play a bottom-six role (likely the fourth line). It will be a struggle for Barbashev to reach 25 points this season without substantial injuries in the Blues' top nine.
Barbashev was chosen 33rd overall by the Blues in June’s NHL Entry Draft following two successful seasons with Moncton of the QMJHL. While his scoring totals aren’t as gaudy as some of the other upper-tier prospects from the league, Barbashev has shown a highly-developed two-way game. Despite not being a premier stick-handler, Barbashev uses his big frame well, both in protecting the puck and doling out punishment. The 18-year-old likely profiles as a second-line center or wing at the NHL level.
