News: Barrie got the secondary assist on Jarome Iginla's power-play goal in Thursday's season-opening loss against the Wild.
Impact: With 53 points in 80 games last year, Barrie was one of the Avs' few bright spots in a lost season, and it's nice to see him start this campaign with a point. He'll man the point on what should be an exciting power-play unit for Colorado this season.

News: Barrie registered a goal on two shots in Sunday's 2-1 preseason shootout loss to the Kings.
Impact: After sitting out the previous matchup against the Flames on Thursday, Barrie suited up for his second preseason game, scoring Colorado's only goal while leading all Avs' players in ice time. Barrie will most likely be a part of Colorado's second defensive pairing and will look to be one of the more dominant offensive threats from the blue line after having a career year with 53 points last season.
