Aleksander Barkov is disappointed that Jaromir Jagr won't be back with the Panthers this season.
"I would be lying if I say no because he helped me so much and probably I would never be in the same situation without him," Barkov said. "When he came in, I took my game to another level and for sure everybody else on the team did too. He just helped so much everybody on the team and is one of the most important guys in my career." Barkov, Jagr and Jonathan Huberdeau was a successful combination for the Panthers, but injuries got in the way last year. He wants to see Jagr get a chance to continue playing somewhere even if it isn't in the NHL. Barkov and Huberdeau are expected to skated alongside Evgeny Dadonov in 2017-18. Aug 10 - 12:10 PM

Barkov between Jonathan Huberdeau and Dadonov could be a deadly combination in 2017-18. Barkov skated in 61 games with the Panthers last season and he picked up 52 points.

Aleksander Barkov (back) is feeling good this off-season.

The injury forced Barkov to miss 21 games in 2016-17, including the final six of the regular season. The good news, is that he didn't need to have surgery to repair the injury. Barkov says he's already begun training for next season. It sounds like he's going to be 100 percent healthy heading into training camp. The Panthers forward scored 21 goals and 52 points in just 61 games.

If Aleksander Barkov could just stay healthy he could be a top-15 player in the NHL.

The 21-year-old is one of the best two-way pivots in the NHL. Barkov was second on the Panthers in scoring with 52 points even though he missed 21 games due to injuries. He was also a team best plus-13 rating. If he can avoid injuries that have plagued him the past two campaigns, he could be a point-per-game player and a Selke Trophy nominee. Don't forget him on draft day.
