Justin Barron's Player Profile

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "A recently diagnosed blood clot will keep him out indefinitely. When healthy, his basement is a great skating defender who makes a great first pass and has plenty of upside."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Sturdy and responsible defender who is able to contribute offensively with a big shot. He is a decent distributor of the puck from the blue line."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "Barron, who was 13th in my preseason ranking and has some really nice qualities, has begun to do the same. I had high hopes for him this season and he just hasnít met those expectations to date. Does that mean heís not a legitimate prospect? No."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "A solid right-shot defender with size, Barron can be physical and does an excellent job of taking care of his own zone first. Although his offensive upside isn't necessarily high end, his ability to get pucks up ice and out of his zone will aid his team's offensive attack."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "What makes him a top prospect is his skating ability. Heís a very mobile defender who can lead attacks with the best in this class. He has offense, but scouts are hesitant to call his puck-moving ability as top-end as his mobility."

Sam Cosentino -Sportsnet - Oct. 2nd: "Skating is the foundational asset where his second gear is so smooth, he can evade the forecheck and transition quickly."

Bob McKenzie -TSN - Sept. 16th: "At almost 6-foot-3 and with great mobility and smarts, the Halifax Moosehead defenceman plays a good all-around game. Heís not nearly as dynamic offensively, or high reward/high risk as Drysdale, but whatís not to like about a big, smart, mobile puck mover who can skate or pass the puck out of trouble and plays a solid defensive game as wel."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Very smart, calm and poised defenceman who plays all situations in the game. Very good puck skills. With his sense, the puck finds its way to the best spots. Handles the big minutes."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "An offensive rearguard who can create at a high-rate during even-strength play. Brings plus-speed and awareness to the offensive side of the game."
