Barkey is a top-line forward who is a smooth skater with a decent two-step acceleration. He sets himself up very well not only the slot for potential shots but all over the ice surface to intercept plays and block shots. Having a slightly smaller stature benefits him in zipping around his opponents and able to sneak behind to take away possession. Barkey challenges well with okay anticipation but excels when in high intensity moments. He shows to have decent sight and awareness of the play and is always moving to place himself in a better position. He has an okay cruising speed but more often than not he was unable to catch the main play. Based off this view, I project Barkey to be a second round contender.
