Petri Kontiola (born 4 October 1984) is a professional ice hockey player for Traktor Chelyabinsk of the Kontinental Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Kontiola was drafted 196th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks from Tappara Tampere of the SM-Liiga. Kontiola played professional for four years in his native Finland before making his North American debut in the 2007–08 season.

Kontiola started out with the Blackhawks affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL, before he played his first NHL game for the Chicago Blackhawks on 25 November 2007 against the Vancouver Canucks.

On 4 March 2009, Kontiola was traded by the Blackhawks along with James Wisniewski to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Samuel Pahlsson and Logan Stephenson and a conditional 2009 draft pick.[1] He was immediately sent down to the Ducks' AHL affiliate, the Iowa Chops, and played out the remainder of the season.

On 26 May 2009, Kontiola was signed by Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL to a two-year deal.[2]

On 3 May 2011, Petri Kontiola has been announced as the new player of KHL’s Traktor Chelyabinsk.[3]

International playEdit

Kontiola made his international debut for Finland at the 2004 World Junior Championships in Helsinki scoring 2 points in 7 games to help earn a Bronze medal. Kontiola was named to the men's 2007 IIHF World Championship team in Russia to make his senior debut. He finished among the Finnish leaders with 7 points in 9 games as Finland lost in the Final to Canada to earn Silver.[4]

Petri returned to the Finnish team three year later when he was selected in the 2010 IIHF World Championship team at Germany. In seven games he scored 3 goals before suffering elimination on 20 May 2010, when he missed a penalty-shot in the quarterfinal shoot-out against the Czech Republic.[5]
