Observations

March 2019 – A tremendous breakout season at Cornell University has Barron rocketing up the Ranger’s centre depth chart. While Barron’s offensive game has undergone a positive transformation, the sophomore has also earned recognition for his defensive play by being named one of the top-three defensive players in the ECAC. Despite conflicting rumours of him considering leaving college early, it now appears that Barron will hold-out until his graduation. The NCAA has proven to be an excellent breeding ground for late-blooming prospects, and this sixth-round draft-pick could very well be next. Brayden Olafson

September 2018 – In his freshman year at Cornell University, the former sixth-round pick tallied five goals and thirteen assists through a 33-game schedule. The product of Halifax is reliable on both sides of the puck, but lacks the offensive instinct that teams expect from an impactful center. His skill set doesn’t rival top offensive prospects, and may only get him as far as the Rangers’ farm system, if he does in fact earn a contract. If he can develop his toolbox further in the next three college campaigns he could challenge that status, but for now he remains a relatively low-profile prospect. Brayden Olafson
