Dmitrij Jaškin (Russian: Дмитрий Яшкин; born March 23, 1993) is a Russian-born Czech ice hockey player who currently plays for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League. Prior to joining Moncton, he played for Slavia Praha of the Czech Extraliga for two seasons. Jaškin was selected first overall in the 2010 KHL Junior Draft by Sibir Novosibirsk, and was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the 2nd round, 41st overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[1]

His father, Alexej Jaskin, was a professional defenceman for Khimik Voskresensk in the Soviet Championship League and later HC Vsetín in the Czech Extraliga. Dmitrij and his older brother Michajl started in the Vsetín youth system while their father played there, and they both transferred to Slavia Prague in 2008. The family has lived in Czech Republic since 1993, when Dmitrij was eight months old.

Jaškin could have played in the 2011 IIHF World U20 Championship, but suffered a knee injury in an Extraliga game on 21 November, which sidelined him for six weeks and caused him to miss the tournament.[2] He registered 10 points in 33 Extraliga games during the season as a 17-year-old, ranking him second among junior-aged players in the league.[3]

After being selected by the Moncton Wildcats in the 2012 CHL Import Draft, Jaškin announced that he would play for the QMJHL team in 2012–13 in order to increase his chances of playing in the NHL.[4]

On April 3, 2013, he signed a 3-year entry-level contract with the St. Louis Blues, and assigned to the Peoria Rivermen.[1]

He was recalled to the Blues roster on April 9.[5]

On December 28, 2013, he scored his first NHL goal against Antti Raanta of the Chicago Blackhawks.
