Miika Wiikman (born October 17, 1984 in Mariestad, Sweden) is a Swedish-born Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender in the New York Rangers organization.

Wiikman started his junior career in Sweden with HV71 before moving to HPK in Finland, with whom he won the SM-Liiga championship in 2006. He signed an AHL contract with the Hartford Wolf Pack on June 4, 2007. He started the season splitting playing time with Al Montoya. After the latter's trade to the Phoenix Coyotes organization, Wiikman became Hartford's undisputed #1 goaltender, finishing the season with a 21-8-3 record. He has signed an entry-level contract with the New York Rangers in April, 2008, but has yet to make the big team.
