Evan Barratt did it again. Goal of the year. Unbelievable skill and balls to say yeah, I am going to chip the puck up in the air to myself and smack it by the goalie. Incredible creativity, skill, and gaul. I love this kid. Love everything about him and have. He plays fearless. Former 3rd round pick was one of the top scorers in college hockey last year and goes viral seemingly once a year. Remember a couple weeks ago when everyone lost their shit because Svech did the Michigan goal in a game for Carolina? Well Evan Barratt did that shit last year.
Oh and he completely emasculated someone the year before
All that coupled with being a good player for USA in the WJC last year and being almost a point per game player in college hockey in his career makes me more excited to have Barratt in the Blackhawks pipeline than just about any player I can remember. Guaranteed fan favorite if he can crack the lineup. Dave Bolland mixed with Andrew Shaw with a little more skill. If he can skate well enough he will be a fixture in the bottom 6 for a long time. Can’t wait.
