Ivan Dmitrievich Barbashev (Russian: Иван Дмитриевич Барбашёв; born 14 December 1995) is a Russian professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). Barbashev was selected by the Blues in the second round, 33rd overall, of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Born and raised in Russia, Barbashev started playing hockey there before moving to North America in 2012, where he joined the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). He spent three seasons in the QMJHL before making his professional debut in the AHL, and made his NHL debut in 2017. Internationally, Barbashev has played for the Russian national junior team at several tournaments, winning a silver and bronze medal in consecutive World Junior Championships. Barbashev won the Stanley Cup in 2019 with the Blues.
Barbashev played for HC MVD in the Russian Junior Hockey League (MHL) during the 2011–12 season. In 38 games with the club he recorded 8 goals and 10 points. He would then be selected first overall by the Moncton Wildcats in the 2012 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft.
Barbashev joined the Moncton Wildcats in 2012 where he scored 62 points in his first season, and was named to the 2012–13 QMJHL All-Rookie Team. Eligible for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Barbashev was the only "A"-rated prospect on the NHL Central Scouting Bureau's preliminary list of players to watch in the QMJHL. After his selection by the Blues in the second round, Barbashev was later signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the club on July 21, 2014.
Barbashev made his NHL debut on January 25, 2017 against the Minnesota Wild. At the time he was second on the Wolves in scoring with 37 points in 44 games. His first goal came against Andrew Hammond of the Ottawa Senators on February 7. Barbashev finished the season playing 30 games for the Blues, where he had 12 points, and had 37 points in 46 games for the Wolves.
Barbashev won the 2019 Stanley Cup Final with the Blues, St. Louis' first Stanley Cup in their 52-year franchise history.
Competing internationally with the Russian national junior team, Barbashev won gold at the 2012 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, played at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, placed fourth at the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships, and won bronze at the 2014 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. At the 2014 World Juniors, he was the youngest player on the Russian team, and had one goal and one assist.
Barbashev began skating at age three. Barbashev's older brother Sergei plays for Admiral Vladivostok of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Barbashev is married to Ksenia Bezgodova, a native of Moscow; they were married on July 23, 2014. He also has a younger brother, Max, who plays in the Dynamo Moscow youth system.
