    Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Records multi-point game Tuesday

    Barkov snagged two points against Washington on Tuesday. Barkov now has back-to-back outings with a power-play goal in addition to a four-game point streak. The center will continue to get opportunities to contribute on special teams as he's averaging 2:50 of ice time per night with the man advantage. If the Panthers are going to keep rolling, the 20-year-old will need to produce at the same level that has seen him register 33 points in 40 contests.

    Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Pots goal in win

    Barkov scored his 13th of the season in Thursday's 5-1 win over Toronto. After going six games without a goal, Barkov opened the scoring for Florida early in the second. The Finnish sophomore is riding a three-game point streak and is skating top-six minutes, so it may be wise to pick him up for a few games while he's hot.

    Barkov signed a six-year, $35.4 million contract extension with the Panthers on Monday, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports. Barkov would have entered free agency at the end of the season but obviously the Panthers have been impressed with the 20-year-old's play over the past three years after drafting the Finland native with the second overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. He already has 30 points in just 38 outings this season, further solidifying Florida's interest in retaining his efforts as a crucial part of their organization moving forward.

    Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Huge game Tuesday

    Barkov delivered two goals -- including one on the power play -- and an assist Tuesday, helping the Panthers to a 3-1 win over the Canadiens. How naive of us to think that humans aren't being replaced by machines. You could say that Barkov has been automatic lately, generating five points (four goals, one assist) in the last two games. The Finn sprinkles production across a number of key offensive categories. Additionally, he has a plus-9 rating and roughly thirty percent of his 23 points this season have taken place with the man advantage. What makes Barkov so special is his ability to use his 6-foot-3, 213-pound frame to neatly control the puck and take accurate shots. He's currently working with a career-high shooting percentage of 14.1.

    Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Busts slump with three-point effort

    Barkov shook off an illness to score an unassisted goal and hand out two helpers in Tuesday's win over the Islanders. The final assist was of the shorthanded, empty-net variety, with the Isles desperately playing 6-on-4 on a late power play. A number of Panthers, Barkov included, sat out Monday's practice with illnesses, but the Russian center and most of his ailing compatriots got out on the ice and delivered a big win. It was the 2013 No. 2 pick's first multi-point game since Nov. 21, and he notched just three points (all assists) in the nine games between. Barkov's production hasn't quite lived up to the heavy minutes he's been playing on the Panthers' first line -- he does now have 16 points in 21 games, but seven of those points have come in three games.
