André Marcus Burakovsky (born 9 February 1995), last name sometimes stylized as Burakowsky, is an Austrian-born Swedish professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing with the Washington Capitals in the National Hockey League. Burakovsky was born in Klagenfurt, Austria, but grew up in Malmö, Sweden.
Burakovsky was selected in the third round (102nd overall) by SKA Saint Petersburg in the 2012 KHL Junior Draft, and was selected by the Capitals in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Burakovsky made his professional debut during the 2011–12 season with the Malmö Redhawks of HockeyAllsvenskan when he was just 16 years old. He won a silver medal playing with Team Sweden at the 2012 IIHF World U18 Championships.
On 22 January 2017, against the Dallas Stars, Burakovsky scored the game’s first goal for the fourth consecutive game.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, Burakovsky tied the NHL record for most consecutive team games scoring the first goal. The feat has been achieved many times, but by only three other players in the last 60 years. Chicago’s Bobby Hull (1969–70), Montreal’s Brian Savage (1995–96) and San Jose’s Jonathan Cheechoo (2007–08).
