Andy Chiodo (born April 25, 1983 in Toronto, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey goaltender with the Klagenfurt AC of the Erste Bank Hockey League. He played eight games in the National Hockey League with the Pittsburgh Penguins and has played in SM-liiga, AHL, KHL, and the ECHL.
Chiodo was originally selected by the New York Islanders in the sixth round (166th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. The Islanders were unable to sign him, and he was made draft-eligible again after the 2002–03 NHL season. The Pittsburgh Penguins chose him in 2003 NHL Entry Draft in the seventh round with the 199th overall pick.
Prior to playing in the Ontario Hockey League, Chiodo played with the Wexford Raiders of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League. After playing three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Toronto St. Michael's Majors, Chiodo made his professional debut with Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, in the 2003–04 season. He also appeared in eight NHL games with Pittsburgh that season.
Chiodo has spent most of his professional career with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and with Pittsburgh's ECHL affiliate, the Wheeling Nailers. He signed with Kärpät in the Finnish SM-liiga for the 2006–07 season, but was sidelined with an injury for most of the autumn. Kärpät released Chiodo from his contract in November, and he signed with Jokerit for a one-month tryout, making his SM-liiga debut on November 16 against HIFK. After only two games, he was injured again. At the SM-liiga trade deadline in January, he signed with HPK.
On August 20, 2009, he was signed by the Ottawa Senators to a one year, two-way contract. He split time between Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton and their ECHL affiliate in Elmira. After the completion of the 2009–10 NHL season, Chiodo was not offered a new contract and became an unrestricted free agent.
Chiodo signed with EC KAC for the 2010–11 EBHL season. He played in 30 games with the team and had a league-best 2.60 GAA. Chiodo led EC KAC to the 2010–11 EBHL Finals before losing to Red Bull Salzburg four games to three.
On April 14, 2011 Chiodo re-signed with EC KAC.
