Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Sven Baertschi
Sven Bärtschi was born on October 5, 1992 in Langenthal, Switzerland. Following a stint with SC Langenthal in the Swiss B League Bärtschi joined Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League for the 2010-11 season, where he finished as the runner-up for the league's Rookie of the Year award. The following summer he was selected 13th overall in the NHL Entry Draft.

In March of 2012, due to a number of injuries in Calgary, the Flames recalled Bärtschi on an emergency basis. He scored his first NHL goal in his NHL game and added goals in the following two games to quickly become a fan favourite in Calgary. He would be returned to Portland after a five game NHL stint.

In Portland, Bärtschi would continue to shine offensively. He led all scorers during the 2012 Western Hockey League playoffs, taking the Winterhawks to the league championship series where they were eventually defeated in seven games by the Edmonton Oil Kings.

Due to the NHL lockout Bärtschi would join the Flames' AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat, for the 2012-13 season. He would notch an impressive 26 goals and 32 points. When play resumed at the NHL level he would join the Flames for 20 games. Recording three goals and seven assists.

After four seasons of splitting seasons between the AHL and the Calgary Flames, he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks for a second round draft pick on March 2, 2015. In his first full season in Vancouver, Baertschi recorded 15 goals and added 13 assists. He bettered those totals the following year, finding the back of the net 18 times to go along with 17 assists. In the summer of 2018, Baertschi and the Canucks came to terms on a three-year contract extension.
