</div></div> Antti Raanta (born May 12, 1989 in Rauma, Finland) is a Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender for the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

In 2013, he won the Finnish championship with Ässät and he was awarded both the Lasse Oksanen trophy for the SM-liiga best player of regular season and the Jari Kurri trophy for the best player of the playoffs with .955 SV%.

On June 3, 2013, Raanta signed a one-year entry-level contract with the Chicago Blackhawks.[1] Raanta was recalled by the Blackhawks from the Rockford IceHogs on November 17, 2013, due to backup goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin being injured in a loss versus the Nashville Predators the previous night.[2] Raanta made his NHL debut against the Colorado Avalanche on November 19, 2013, stopping 14 of 16 shots in relief of Corey Crawford.[3] On December 30, 2013, Raanta earned his first career shutout, beating the Los Angeles Kings, at home in the United Center. He stopped all 26 shots he faced, and improved to 10–1–3 on the season. Raanta was named Rookie of the Month (shared with Martin Jones) for December 2013, going 8–1–3 with one shutout.[4] On January 12, 2014, Raanta brought his team back onto a winning streak. The Blackhawks had been on a three-game losing streak, with Crawford as goalie for all three. Raanta played against the Edmonton Oilers and won 5–3.

On June 27, 2014, the Blackhawks signed Raanta to a two-year contract extension.[5]

On November 15, 2014, the Blackhawks announced that Raanta had been assigned to the Rockford IceHogs to make room for rookie goaltender Scott Darling.[6]
