St. Louis Blues
2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Lands two-year contract with Blues
LWSt. Louis Blues
September 1, 2019
Barbashev inked a two-year deal worth $2.95 million with St. Louis on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old was a restricted free agent and reportedly considered moving to Europe if he couldn't work out a deal with the Blues. Fortunately, Barbashev secured a deal after his 14-goal, 26-point campaign that ended with a Stanley Cup victory. He'll likely remain in a fourth-line center role with St. Louis.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
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.
