Aleksandr Sergeyevich Yakushev (Russian: Александр Сергеевич Якушев) (b. January 2, 1947 in Moscow, Russia, U.S.S.R.) was an ice hockey player.

Yakushev made himself famous by being one of the stars of the Soviet National Team during the 1972 Summit Series, leading the Soviets with 7 goals and 4 assists. A rough and physical player, Yakushev was somewhat of an equivalent of Phil Esposito, which was very uncommon on the Soviet side.
