Ville Hostikka (born March 21, 1985) is a Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender. He currently plays for HC Slovan Bratislava of the KHL.[1] He was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the sixth round, 193rd overall, of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.


In the 2011 European Trophy, although he did not record any shutouts, Hostikka won the regulation round's goaltending league in save percentage for goaltenders who played at least 40% of the team's minutes, although his team, Oulun Kärpät, finished fifth in the East Division and missed the following playoffs.
