He is the son of retired professional Russian ice hockey player Alexander Edgardovich Barkov and was raised in Finland, since his father played for their SM-Liiga team Tappara. He also has an elder brother, named Juri.
In October 2011, Aleksander Barkov made his playing debut as a part of the Tappara team in SM-Liiga. Being just 16 years old at the time, it made him the youngest player of the league to score a point. Although he suffered a shoulder injury in the next season and missed the playoffs, Aleksander was selected in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft as the 2nd overall pick by the Florida Panthers of the NHL.
Captain of the Florida Panthers
So, he signed a contract with the Panthers in July 2013, and soon became the youngest player of the league to score his first NHL point in the match against the Dallas Stars in October 2013. In the 2015-16 season, Aleksander became one of the finalists for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy; however, he lost to Anže Kopitar. In January 2016, he signed a contract worth $35.4 million over the next six years. During the following season, Aleksander set career-highs in points (78) and assists (51), and played in his first NHL All-Star Game.
In September 2018, he was selected to serve as the team’s captain, replacing Derek MacKenzie. He continued to line up successes, scoring his first hat-trick in the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs in December 2018, while his second hat-trick came in the match against the Montreal Canadians in February 2019. During the same year, he became the winner of the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded for ‘sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct’. He finished his 2018-19 season with 96 points and 61 assists.
International playing career
Regarding his international playing career, Aleksander Barkov represented Finland at the 2011 Ice Hockey World Junior Championship, and became the second-youngest player to score a goal in the match against Slovakia. In 2014, he was invited to represent Finland at the Winter Olympics Games in Sochi, Russia; however, he suffered a knee injury after two games, so he had to sit out the rest of the tournament. Two years later, Aleksander once again represented Finland, at the IIHF World Championship, when they won the silver medal.
