Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Barret Jackman
Barret Jackman was born April 5, 1981 in Trail, British Columbia. The 1st choice, 17th overall selection of the St. Louis Blues in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Jackman is a graduate of the Western Hockey League's Regina Pats.

The defenseman from Trail, B.C. played four seasons with the Regina Pats and is a two-time member of Canada's World Junior team in 2000 and 2001. The Pats Rookie of the Year and Scholastic Player of the Year in 1997-98, Jackman captained team Canada's Under-18 team to a gold medal at the Under-18 World Tournament in Slovakia.

A fierce competitor, Jackman plays with a high level of intensity and is a punishing player in his own end. The Pats Defenseman of the Year and Most Valuable Player in 1998-99, Jackman joined the Blues AHL affiliate in Worcester following Regina's 1999-2000 season, playing in two games in the team's playoff drive.

Jackman returned to the Pats in 2000-01 for his final year of junior before joining the IceCats in 2001-02. Even though he spent the majority of the season in Worcester, Jackman suited up for one regular season and one playoff game with the Blues. Barret played his first full season in the NHL in 2002-03, and showed poise beyond his years playing with veteran Al MacInnis. At season's end, Jackman was named the league's top rookie, winning the Calder Trophy over finalists Henrik Zetterberg and Rick Nash.

In 2003-04, Jackman was limited to a mere 15 games recovering from a shoulder injury he incurred in the early portion of the season. Following a stint in the UHL with Mussouri, Jackman returned to the NHL and the Blues in 2005-06.

After playing 12 seasons in St. Louis where he was the most tenured player within all four major sports teams in the area, the Blues elected not to re-sign him as he became an unrestricted free agent.

On July 1, 2015, Jackman signed a two year contract with the Nashville Predators.
