Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Antti Miettinen
Antti Miettinen was born July 3, 1980 in Hameenlinna, Finland. The seventh round, 224th overall selection of the Dallas Stars in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Miettinen honed his skills in the Finnish Junior and Elite Leagues before bringing his game to North America in 2003-04.

Upon his arrival in North America, Miettinen saw limited action with the Stars while seeing most of his playing time with the team's AHL affiliate in Utah. He became a regular in the line-up in 2005-06, appearing in 79 games and recording a career high 31 points. He bettered those point totals during his 2007-08 campaign before he signed in the off-season with the Minnesota Wild.

On the international stage, Miettinen has represented his homeland twice at the World Junior Championships, four times at the World Championships, and once at the Olympics.
