Mikko Hyyrynen (born 1 November 1977 in Lappeenranta) is a Finnish footballer who is currently playing for TPS. His position is striker.

Hyyrynen debuted in Veikkausliiga for FC Lahti in 2001 but did not make his real breakthrough into top-flight football until the 2003 season when he was playing for the newly promoted TPS. He stayed at TPS for five seasons before moving on to MyPa and then FF Jaro. In winter 2009 he signed a two-year contract with JJK. He guided his new team to the Finnish League Cup 2010 final, where they lost to FC Honka on penalties. He scored his 50th Veikkausliiga goal in a 2-3 win over FC Honka on 23 August 2010.

After the 2011 season his contract with JJK expired and he returned to Turku, to sign a one-year contract with TPS, a club which he presented between 2002-2006.[1]

Hyyrynen was capped twice for the Finnish national team in friendly matches against Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in March 2005 but has not been called up since.[2]
