Aleksander Barkov isn't expected to play Tuesday after he left Monday's game with an upper-body injury.

It's believed that he was tested for a concussion when he exited the contest, but Florida hasn't provided details on the ailment other than to say it's an upper-body issue. It's unclear how long he will be sidelined for, but he will be missed. The Panthers lost six of 10 games when Barkov was sidelined with a broken bone in his hand earlier this season.

His entry-level contract is up at the end of the 2015-16 season and he has a $925,000 cap hit this season. Barkov is projected to be a key member of the Panthers moving forward and now he's being paid like one. He has 12 goals and 30 points in 38 games this year.
Jan 25 - 6:49 PM

The Panthers' recent 12-game winning streak was primarily fueled by Aleksander Barkov and his linemates Jaromir Jagr and Jonathan Huberdeau.

During the streak the unit registered an amazing 36 points (15 goals) and did not allow an opponent an even-strength tally. It could be argued that Barkov himself was responsible for five of the wins during the streak as his 14 points, included two game winners, two shootout winners and two of three goals in a 3-1 win over Montreal. If you hadn't noticed by now, Barkov is turning into a superstar before our eyes. So if you can acquire him from an owner who has not yet appreciated this fact, you could be in for a big windfall.

The 20-year-old, the team’s second-overall pick from the 2013 draft, boasts tremendous upside and is certainly a player to build around.
