Stanley Cup Champion Aleksander Barkov Scores Off the Ice

His charity work helps benefit children at South Florida hospitals.

Fresh off helping the Florida Panthers win the franchise’s first-ever Stanley Cup, Aleksander “Sasha” Barkov’s work away from Amerant Bank Arena proves just as vital for local children at South Florida hospitals. Barkov launched his #BarkovScores4JoeD philanthropic campaign for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation, donating $1,600 for each goal he scores and $800 for each he assists on during the regular season and playoffs. He also provides a suite at each Panthers home game for those connected to the hospital.

In the five seasons of #BarkovScores4JoeD, the team captain has pledged $420,000 to help kids, families and programs at the pediatric facility in Hollywood. His contribution has supported the recent expansion of the children’s hospital, including the new child life zone, where he connects with patients by playing games, taking photos and signing autographs to positively impact their lives.

“I really value my partnership with Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and am very happy they are part of the Florida Panthers family,” says Barkov, a two-time Frank J. Selke Trophy winner as the best defensive forward in the league. “I’m very proud to witness the expansion of the hospital and the ability this amazing team of professionals now have to provide even more complex care to the South Florida community and beyond.”

Along with the Stanley Cup and Selke trophies to his name, Barkov has also received the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, given to the NHL player who exemplifies sportsmanship, gentlemanly conduct and a high level of playing ability. Selected with the No. 2 pick in the 2013 draft, he has spent his entire NHL career with the Panthers.

The Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is one of the country’s pediatric hospitals. It provides a wide range of healthcare services and programs within a nurturing and empathetic environment tailored specifically for children.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
