Juho Olkinuora (born 4 November 1990) is a Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender who is currently playing for Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Undrafted, Olkinuora played junior hockey in North America before attending the University of Denver to play in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. He was signed after his sophomore season with the Pioneers by the Winnipeg Jets of the National Hockey League (NHL) on 8 April 2013.

After a career season in his lone year with the Lahti Pelicans of the Liiga in the 2018–19 season, Olkinuora left Finland to sign a one-year contract with Russian club, Admiral Vladivostok of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), on 15 May 2019.[1] In the following 2019–20 season, Olkinuora was leaned on as Admirals starting goaltender, posting a .929 save percentage in 31 games.

On 17 June 2020, with Admiral Vladivostok going on a season hiatus, Olkinuora was signed as a free agent on a two-year contract with fellow KHL club, Metallurg Magnitogorsk.[2]

Olkinuora represented Finland at the 2019 IIHF World Championship, appearing in relief in 1 game as Finland captured the gold medal at the tournament.[3]
