Aleksander Barkov scored his fourth goal of the season in Thursday night's 4-2 loss to Colorado.
Barkov now has 10 points through 31 games this season, obviously not numbers that are going to put him on your fantasy radar at this time. But when you consider when those points have come, you might want to think again. Barkov has five of those points in his past six games, so keep an eye on the 19-year-old just in case he stays consistent. Jan 16 - 12:23 AM

Aleksander Barkov is being told to shoot more by his teammates and coaches.

He worked on his wrist shot over the summer, but he's been credited with only 15 shots in 11 games. "My shot is better, but I have to use it more," Barkov said. "I have to be more selfish because I've always thought 'pass first.' I have to change that mentality." He is off to a very slow start this year, with two goals and no assists.
