Mikko, Mikko

A generation ago they chanted "Chico".  Is it too early to start thinking of the chants of "Mikko" at the Coliseum.

Probably, but 6' 7"Mikko Koskinen is turning heads in the ECHL, where he recently debuted following recovery from a hip injury.

He was the Isles 31st pick overall, and the first goalie taken in the 2009 entry draft.  He'll turn 22 in July. 

Here's his stats from his first 5 pro games:

                                              Shots Goals Saves Result
