Playing careerEdit

Eloranta was drafted 247th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. He played for Boston for two seasons, before he was traded by the Bruins, along with Jason Allison, to the Los Angeles Kings for Jozef Stumpel and Glen Murray on October 24, 2001.

He played for the Kings another two seasons. He then returned to Finland, playing for TPS in the Finnish National League.

In 2004, Eloranta played in Switzerland for the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers. Eloranta suffered a major injury in August 2005 during an exhibition game, breaking a bone in his leg, and was not a member of the Silver Medal-winning Finnish Hockey Team at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

After 3 seasons with the Lakers, Eloranta signed with Swedish 1st division team, the Malmo Redhawks for the 2007-08 season. Eloranta then returned to his native Finland, linking up with old club TPS for the 2008-09 season.
