Future Watch: Barrett Hayton Rookie Hockey Cards, Coyotes – Barrett Hayton was drafted by the Arizona Coyotes with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft. The Kitchener, Ontario native has had a meteoric rise through the ranks, and it got serious when he joined the Sault. Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
In his first season with the Greyhounds, he had nine goals and 27 points in 63 games. He got nine games of playoff experience under his belt. All of that helped ignite his career.
In 2017-18, he had 21 goals and 60 points in 61 games. He added eight goals and 21 points in 24 playoffs games on a deep run. That season he won a gold medal with Team Canada in the Hlinka Memorial Tournament. He had six points in five games there.
2018-19 was tough. He had to overcome injury and he did just that. As the team captain, he had 26 goals and 66 points in just 39 games! He had six goals and 16 points in 11 playoff games. His U20 World Junior Championship debut of four points in five games was another feather in his cap that season.
In 2019-20, the talented pivot made the roster out of camp, even though they have a ton of talent on that team. In his first 14 games, he had a goal and three helpers. He only took 12 PIMS so his hockey I.Q. kicked in.
The Coyotes let him play in his second World Junior Championship. He was arguably the best player on Team Canada with six goals and six helpers in seven games. He was voted a Top Three Player and an All-Star who took home a gold medal.
Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:
