Barbashev scored a shorthanded goal on two shots and added two hits in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Kings.

Barbashev has tallied in three straight games, and his assist in the season opener has him on a four-game point streak. The Russian forward has been part of the Blues' impressive depth scoring to begin the year -- the team has tallied 22 times in four contests. While he's unlikely to play higher than the third line, Barbashev's mix of modest offense and solid physicality could earn him interest in deeper formats.
