Barteaux has played with the Red Deer Rebels in the WHL since midway through the 2016-2017 season. He recorded three goals, a staggering 29 assists, and 32 points in 64 games during the 2017-2018 season. Barteaux is the first defenseman the Stars have picked in the 2018 draft.
Despite the mid-level size for a blueliner, Barteaux shows room for growth and an eagerness to constantly work on his game:
Barteaux made huge strides this season for Red Deer and kept taking on a bigger and bigger role. Highly mobile, puck moving, right-shot defenseman with some really nice upside. Love this pick in the 6th round... I had him a lot higher— Derek Neumeier (@Derek_N_NHL) June 23, 2018
We’ll have more interviews and content in the coming days thanks to our staff at the draft in Dallas.
