Juho Lammikko (born 29 January 1996) is a Finnish professional ice hockey winger who is currently playing with Oulun Kärpät of the Liiga. His NHL rights are currently held by the Florida Panthers organization.

Playing career[edit]

Ässät[edit]

Lammikko made his Liiga debut with Ässät during the 2013–14 Liiga season, appearing in 20 games and recording an assist. He also played in 37 games with the Ässät under 20 team, scoring 17 goals and 42 points, followed by three goals and eight points in 11 playoff games. Following the season, Lammikko was drafted by the Florida Panthers in the third round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Lammikko returned to Ässät at the beginning of the 2015–16 Liiga season, scoring two goals in five games, before returning to his OHL team, the Kingston Frontenacs.

Kingston Frontenacs[edit]

Lammikko was drafted 43rd overall by the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League in the 2014 CHL Import Draft. In his first game with the Frontenacs, Lammikko scored his first career OHL goal against Jason Da Silva of the Peterborough Petes, and added two assists, in a 5-3 victory. Overall, Lammikko appeared in 64 games with Kingston, scoring 18 goals and 44 points, and had a team high +23 rating. In the playoffs, Lammikko had a goal and two points in four games.

Lammikko returned to the Frontenacs for the 2015–16 season, and in 59 games, he scored 22 goals and 55 points. On 15 February, Lammikko earned his first career hat-trick, scoring three goals against Mackenzie Blackwood of the Barrie Colts in a 6-4 victory, and on 18 March, Lammikko scored two goals and added two assists for four points in a 7-0 win over the Oshawa Generals. In the post-season, Lammikko scored three goals and seven points in nine games.

Florida Panthers[edit]

Lammikko was drafted by the Florida Panthers at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft with the Panthers third round pick, 65th overall. On 15 April 2016, the Panthers signed Lammikko to a three-year entry level contract, and assigned him to their AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates.[1] He appeared in one game with the Pirates in the 2015–16 season, earning no points.

After attending the Panthers 2018 training camp, and despite strong pre-season showing Lammikko was initially returned to begin the 2018–19 season with the Springfield Thunderbirds. Lammikko played one game before he received his first NHL recall to the Panthers, due to an injury to Derek MacKenzie on 9 October 2018.[2]

Return to Finland[edit]

At the conclusion of his entry-level contract, Lammikko as a restricted free agent, opted to return to Finland to further develop his offensive game. With his rights retained by the Panthers, Lammikko signed a one-year contract with Oulun Kärpät of the Liiga on 12 July 2019.[3]
