April 2020 – The Blackhawks have signed the Finnish goaltender to a two-year deal worth an average annual value of $800,000. Lankinen’s transition to North America has been a bit tougher than expected, especially after his standout performance at the 2019 World Championships where he led team Finland to a gold medal. With the uncertainty surrounding the Blackhawks goaltending situation, Lankinen is in a great position to earn a spot this coming season. Tony Carr

 

February 2019 – Lankinen was signed coming off an incredible run with HIFK after returning from injury. He is a big, mobile goalie with strong lateral movement. Capable of stealing games, his impossibly good ratios have returned to a more sustainable level since coming to Rockford of the AHL. All in all, a solid start to his career in North America.
