This year has been a season to forget for the Chicago Blackhawks, but at least the future looks a little brighter considering they have some highly skilled prospects in their system waiting to get a shot in the NHL.

One player that should be on the Blackhawks' roster in the near future is Evan Barratt. Selected 90th overall in last summer's NHL Entry Draft, the 19-year-old is currently in his freshman season at Pennsylvania State University and has eight goals and six assists for 14 points through 28 games.

The Bristol, Pennsylvania native has been making a name for himself in his freshman season and he stole the spotlight this past weekend against the University of Minnesota. After getting into it with New York Rangers prospect Ryan Lindgren​, the two were sent to the penalty box with offsetting cross-checking calls and Barratt ripped into his opponent once they were in the box.

While Lindgren attempted to give Barratt an earful from his team's penalty box, the Blackhawks prospect responded by gesturing to Lindgren to stop crying and acting like a baby. Once they served their time and were released from the box, Barratt got the best of Lindgren once more.

As embarrassing as it is to give someone an earful and then get completely leveled by them moments later, Barratt capped off the shift in the best possible way by going BarDown for his eighth of the season.

Penn State outscored Minnesota 10-3 in the first two games to take a 2-0 series lead.
