Aleksander Barkov is a professional ice hockey player in the National Hockey League. He was born in Tampere, Finland on September 2nd, 1995, and into a hockey family, as his father played for Tappara of the Finnish SM-Liiga.
Like his father, Aleksander Barkov made his debut in SM-Liiga on October 1st, 2011. Playing for Tappara Tampere of the Finnish Elite League, Barkov scored a point with his assist to a goal and became the youngest player in the league to score a point as a result. In December of that year, Barkov was selected to play for Finland men’s national junior ice hockey team; Barkov was the youngest Finnish player in the Ice Hockey World Junior Championships. He also earned the record as the second youngest player, behind Kazakhstan’s Viktor Alexandrov, to score a goal at the World Juniors at the age of 16 years and 4 months. Less than two years later, on July 15, 2013, Barkov signed his first NHL contract, ultimately choosing the Florida Panthers, during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. On October 3, 2013, he became the youngest player to score a goal since the 1967 NHL expansion. Representing Finland, Aleksander Barkov won the bronze medal at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and the silver at the 2016 IIHH World Championship that was held in Russia. Following his initial success, during the 2015-2016 season, Aleksander was named the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy finalist, which was presented to the National Hockey League “player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability.” Additionally, Barkov, with the Panthers, signed a six-year contract extension. Barkov’s sportsmanship and high level of play continued, as he was again named a Lady Byng Trophy finalist after his 2017-18 performance, with a career high 78 points in another career high of 79 games, as well as selected for the All-Star Game.
