Alexander Golikov was one of the top scoring forwards of the Russian Elite League of the 1970s. Graduate of the youth hockey school in Penza, Russia, he began to play in the Russian Elite League when he joined the Khimik Voskresensk in 1971.
Led by the well-known Soviet coach, Nikolay Epstein, Khimik was a rare Russian team of the 1970s that followed a distinct defensive style. Alexander Golikov managed to develop into a skillful scorer of the Russian League even with a team where scoring was rather secondary to a strict defense.
In 1976, Golikov joined the Dynamo Moscow where he played with a legend of the Soviet hockey, Alexander Maltsev. Alexander Golikov's younger brother, Vladimir followed his steps with almost a consistent two-year difference - started to play in Penza, then moved on to the Khimik and ended up playing with Alexander for the Dynamo Moscow. Both Golikov's brothers played for the Team USSR and were inducted into the "Russian Hall of Fame" for their outstanding achievements.
In 1974, Golikov was 22. He was selected as a candidate for the Team USSR 1974 at the Summit Series but he didn't play a single game in the Series.
