Barkov Chips A Cheeky Little Shot Over Stalock’s Shoulder
- Aleksander Barkov flied through the zone and faked out Alex Stalock, pulling him across the crease but flipping a shot over his shoulder to give the Panthers a goal.
- That was cheeky … indeed.
- Amazing reach, look how long his stick is, soft buttery hands
- There’s a reason why players voted for him as the most underrated player in the league.
“To me, he’s a Top 3 player in the league and I don’t think a lot of people would say that,” one Atlantic Division player said.
“Barkov’s got the best hands in the NHL for a big guy,” a Central player said. “He’s huge, he’s got an unbelievable shot, unbelievable vision. He’s got it all in one package. There’s not one thing in his game that is lacking.”
