Barrie has two goals and two assists in five games. Not too shabby for a defenseman.
Barrie contributed a power-play goal in Friday's 3-1 home win over the Ducks.
This was the first man-advantage point for Barrie this season. He's averaged over three minutes per game in that special teams situation the past two years, and Colorado as a team surprisingly ranks in the top third when it comes to converting power play opportunities. Barrie is starter material in just about any fantasy setting.

Barrie netted the game-winning goal and added an assist in Thursday's season opener against the Rangers.
A great season debut for Barrie, who is one of the more productive offensive rearguards around. The 26-year-old manned the point on the first power-play unit and fired four shots on goal. He's yet to truly become an elite d-man, but his strong offensive numbers over the past few seasons make him worth owning in almost all fantasy leagues.
