Barret D. Jackman (born March 5, 1981) is a Canadian ice hockey defenseman and alternate captain for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). He currently has the longest tenured athlete in professional sports in St. Louis after he was drafted by the Blues in 1999.[1] Jackman was born in Trail, British Columbia, but grew up in Fruitvale, British Columbia.

Playing career[edit]

Jackman played with the Missouri River Otters during the 2004–05 lockout

Jackman was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the first round, 17th overall, of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

Jackman learned how to skate at a young age from many years of competitive figure skating.

Jackman was named the youngest captain ever in the history of the Regina Pats in the Western Hockey League.

In the 2002–03 NHL season he finished with a plus 23 rating and was among the leaders for NHL rookies in average ice time per game. Jackman won the Calder Memorial Trophy (Rookie of the Year) in 2003, narrowly beating out the Detroit Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg and the Columbus Blue Jackets' Rick Nash.[2]

He was sidelined by a chronic dislocated shoulder during much of the 2003–04 season, and thus played in only 15 games that season; a somewhat disappointing follow-up to his stellar rookie year.

When the NHL was locked out Jackman stayed in St. Louis and played for the Missouri River Otters. He returned to the Blues for the 2005–06 season. For the 2006–07 season Jackman set career highs in assists and points. He was a member of the 2007 Canadian IIHF World Championship team that won gold in a 4–2 win against Finland in Moscow, Russia.

On June 18, 2012, Jackman was re-signed by the Blues to a three-year contract extension.[1]

Jackman was married in July 2007. Jackman's childhood home was recently used for filming in the Canadian television series Road Hockey Rumble.
