Barlow has played four games with the Royals, registering ten points (4g-6a) and playing to a plus-eleven (+11). Barlow picked up an assist and played to a plus-one (+1) in the Bears’ 4-2 win this evening over the Toronto Marlies. The Royals head to Greenville, South Carolina, where they will face the Greenville Road Warriors at the Bi-Lo Center on Wednesday, November 28 @ 7:00 pm.
