Viktor Borisovich Alexandrov (Russian: Виктор Борисович Александров, born December 28, 1985) is a Kazakhstani professional ice hockey player who is currently with Admiral Vladivostok in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Alexandrov was drafted 83rd overall by the St. Louis Blues in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, but he never signed a contract and remained in Russia.

Playing career[edit]

At the age of 15, Alexandrov became the youngest player to score in the World Junior Ice Hockey Championship.[1] He never played for the senior Kazakhstan team however. He signed with Metallurg Novokuznetsk in the Russian Superleague. He then moved to SKA Saint Petersburg in 2005, following Metallurg's former head coach. However, there he struggled to make a difference and prove himself and left to join HC MVD. He then returned to Metallurg and enjoyed a career high 2007-08 season where he scored 20 goals and 43 points in 55 games. Alexandrov signed with Avangard Omsk for the inaugural KHL season in 2008-09.

Personal[edit]

He is the son of Soviet hockey star Boris Alexandrov who played for the Team USSR.
