“We are excited to have signed Mikko to a three-year contract extension through the 2022 season,” general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a press release. “Mikko has a lot of experience as a number one goalie and has performed well both internationally and for our club.”
Signed to a one-year deal in the off-season, the 30-year-old Koskinen has played in 27 games for the Oilers this season, posting a 14-10-1 record with a 2.78 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage.
Originally drafted in the second round of the 2009 draft by the New York Islanders, Koskinen played in just four games in Long Island before returning to Europe where he played two seasons in the Finnish Elite League and four in the KHL.
