Kari Piiroinen commits to Spitfires

Windsor Spitfires

 

(Windsor, ON) – General Manager Warren Rychel is pleased to announce goaltender Kari Piiroinen has agreed to a standard Ontario Hockey League player and education package with the club.

Piiroinen (Pea-ROY-nin) was chosen with the 30th pick in the 2018 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft back in June.

“Kari is the best goaltender in Finland in his age group,” Rychel said. “He’s a great addition to our team that will provide us depth behind Mikey (Michael DiPietro) in the immediate future. We’re confident he will grow into a premier starter in our league.”

The 6’0, 161-pound native of Finland played in 27 games with HIFK U-18s last season, posting a 2.73 goals against average and a .912 save percentage before an impressive 1.00 goals against and .957 save percentage in five playoff games.

Piiroinen also represented Finland at the 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in British Columbia (3.35 / .902 in four games played).
