Colby Barlow's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "He is the definition of a meat and potatoes player who can play up and down a lineup, drive the center lane and finish plays on his stick. Barlow is a garbage man of sorts, cleaning up around the net with good hands in tight."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "Plays with details in his game. Is a threat to score from distance and off the rush."

Colby Barlow - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "This is a player that I don’t see being able to drive his own line. He has great hands in tight areas, and can unleash a bomb of a wrister, but to see him reach his potential, he’d benefit immensely from a centerman with vision and distribution skills."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Nov. 15th: "I see a lot of things in his game that will translate to higher levels. Barlow is a strong skater who competes well. He has great offensive skills and can shoot the puck, making him a threat on the power play, but he’s also a short-handed threat who kills penalties well."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "Barlow plays a direct, intentional game built around great hands, good overall speed, a pro frame, and an NHL shot. He’s also going to be an able penalty killer, which should give him all-situations upside at the next level."

Sebastian High - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "He doggedly pressures the puck carrier in the offensive zone but can be relatively disengaged on the defensive side of things. He needs to work on his stride and acceleration, but when he has a runway, he picks up impressive speed and metamorphosizes into a freight train."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "Is this the next Mason McTavish? Earned reputation as a 30-goal scorer in the OHL at 16 years old, but showed layers to his game, including the ability to work the PK, while representing his country in the summer."

Steven - Daily FaceOff - Oct. 3rd: "Barlow’s wrist shot can be devastating, and his defensive game looked improved during the Hlinka Gretzky Cup. Rounding out his game will be a big task this season, but there’s a lot to like early on."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - Sept. 27th: "Barlow possesses a very balanced offensive skillset. He has the shot, the compete and drive to maintain possession and battle for loose pucks."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - August 8th: "Barlow plays a direct, intentional game built around great hands, good overall speed, a pro frame, and an NHL shot. He’s also going to be an able penalty killer, which should give him all-situations upside at the next level."
