Dmitrij Jaškin (Russian: Дмитрий Яшкин; born March 23, 1993 in Omsk) is a Russian-born Czech professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for Dynamo Moskva of the KHL. 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.

His father, Alexei Yashkin, 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 in 2008. The family has lived in Prague, Czech Republic since 1993, when Dmitrij was eight months old.

Jaškin would 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.[1] 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.[2]

He played for the Czech Republic in the 2011 WC U18, 2012 WJC, 2013 WJC, 2016 World Cup of Hockey, 2018 WC and 2019 WC.
