Barry T. Tallackson (born April 14, 1983 in Grafton, North Dakota and raised in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota) is an American ice hockey forward who plays for the Eisbären Berlin of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).

Playing career[edit]

Prior to being drafted into the NHL in 2002, Tallackson played for the Minnesota Golden Gophers, a WCHA team.[1]

Tallackson was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the 2nd round, 53rd overall, on June 22, 2002. In December 2008 the Devil's waived their rights to the forward, just weeks after he underwent surgery to correct an irregular heartbeat[2] associated with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.[3] He played with the Devil's farm team Lowell Devils where he scored 11 goals and 10 assists[4] prior to being signed as a free agent by the St. Louis Blues on July 22, 2009.[5]

Tallackson soon was released by St. Louis and later signed with Augsburger Panthers in Germany on July 17, 2010.[6]

On May 2, 2011, after one season with Augsburg, Tallackson signed with reigning champions, Eisbären Berlin, on a one-year contract.[7]

Tallackson's season with the Eisbären saw him finish second in points and goals on the DEL championship winning Eisbären team. Tallackson won MVP of the final series of the playoffs, and saw his contract extended with the Eisbären for another season.[8]
