Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A bit of a simple player, lacking a high end hockey IQ in our opinion, but his physical tools help him succeed. He flashes a good shot and gets himself into scoring position, but isn’t what we would deem a creative player or fantastic play-maker. We like that Barron makes use of his physical tools and is difficult to play against. He’s an effective forechecker with a strong compete level." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Has excellent physical tools, consistently shaking off defenders through excellent balance and edgework. Has a hard shot. Excels on the penalty kill and the forecheck with his ability to close down the opposition quickly. His offensive prowess is limited by his lack of vision and play-making skill, however. He's able to get himself into dangerous positions, but never creates chances for others or shows much imagination." (Red Line Report)
