Sallinen started his Liiga career with his hometown club, Espoo Blues. In 2008 and 2011, he made the Liiga finals with the Blues, but did not capture the title. On April 11, 2014, Sallinen left the Blues to sign a one-year contract in Sweden with Leksands IF of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Leksand was relegated in the 2014–15 SHL season, and Sallinen signed with SHL rivals Djurgårdens IF in April 2015.
He left Sweden at the conclusion of the 2015-16 campaign to further his career in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), landing a deal with HC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk. In November 2016, he transferred to fellow KHL side HC Kunlun Red Star.
Sallinen won silver with Team Finland at the 2014 and 2016 World Championships.
