Ex-Oilers goaltender makes unfortunate announcement

Oilers fans will remember him well.



Former Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mikko Koskinen returned overseas in June of 2022 to suit up for HC Lugano in the Swiss National League, but he's reportedly decided to hang up the pads. 

According to multiple reports on social media, Koskinen is declaring his retirement from professional hockey.

In his last season with the Oilers, he amassed a record of 27-12-4 with a 3.10 goals-against average and .903 save percentage, serving as backup to Mike Smith as the Oilers made it to the Western Conference Final for the first time since their Cinderella run in 2006. 

He was one of the tallest goaltenders at 6'7 to ever play in the National Hockey League. He was originally drafted second round, 31st overall, by the New York Islanders in the 2009 NHL Draft.
