Who is Mikko Koskinen?

He’s a goalie in the KHL and, according to Elliotte Friedman, the Oilers are the front-runner to sign him. Cool, okay. Is that a good thing? Who is this guy?

Anyways, we at Hockeyfights have chosen to wrap…

Thank you to the hockey community

If you played hockey growing up, you’ve travelled on a bus with your teammates. These are arguably some of the best times of a young player’s life.
