Mikko Mäenpää (born April 19, 1983 in Tampere) is Finnish professional ice hockey defenceman, currently playing for Amur Khabarovsk in the Kontinental Hockey League

Playing career[edit | edit source]

He could not break through into Tappara roster at young age, so he moved to JYP in 2002. He also made brief visits to Pelicans and Mestis teams Jukurit and Sport. After full season in Jukurit in 2005-06 when the team won Mestis title, he moved to HPK and made a breakthrough season in SM-liiga, having 40 points.

He signed contract with Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL) in the summer, but ended up playing for their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate the Syracuse Crunch. He returned to HPK mid-season, only to continue to Skellefteå AIK in the Swedish Elitserien later in the season. He played two more seasons in HPK until 2010 and had seasons of 47 and 30 points. He was then selected to the national team for the 2010 IIHF World Championship for the first time in his career.
