Report: Evan Barratt Returning To Penn State

Center Evan Barratt is returning to Penn State for a third season according to Scott Powers of The Athletic.

According to Powers, the Hawks envisioned Barratt playing at least three seasons at Penn State when he was the team’s third round pick in 2017.

Barratt, 20, finished the 2018-19 season with 16 goals and 27 assists in 32 games for PSU in the Big Ten. Powers also reported that Barratt recently underwent an undisclosed surgery. According to Powers, Barratt “is expected to be out 2-3 months and should be 100 percent come August and be ready for next season.”

  1. 2 or 3 months?

    This was the right decision then. You want to start your pro career on the right foot and not after lengthy rehab.

  2. Coming off a monster season. Don’t like interrupting college, but let’s hope we see him in an Indianhead sweater for the 20/21 season. Speaking of which Blackhawk management needs to be assured that Turcotte would only play one year at Wisconsin, if he is the player they want.

  3. Mitch and Barratt are now at the same timeline. These two could be good players for us and more ready when they play.

  4. Morrison,
    I’m noticing that same pattern. It seems that they are both being guided in this. Whether they both need additional work or they are being guided, I am glad that they are getting additional time and minutes in their college play.

  5. No would think there’s a good chance maybe both sign and burn a year at end of the season next year as late season adds unless they are in frozen 4.
