The Panthers' Aleksander Barkov has been on fire since Christmas.

The second-overall pick in 2013, has righted his ship after a very slow start to the 2014-15 season during which he registered five points in his first 25 games. In Barkov's last 10 games the talented 19-year-old has registered 10 points. If you have not seen some of Barkov's most recent goals and assists, we wish to advise the kid seems to have finally arrived and could be one of the NHL's next big stars. Barkov is also a complete player, who can be physical and responsible defensively. If for some reason Barkov is still available on your waiver wire don't waste another second reading this. Go grab him.

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.
