Biography

Joonas Korpisalo (born 28 April 1994) is a Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing with the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career

He was selected by the Blue Jackets in the 3rd round (62nd overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Korpisalo played professionally in his native Finland in the SM-liiga during the 2012–13 and 2013–14 seasons for Jokerit and Ilves respectively.

On 21 March 2014, the Columbus Blue Jackets of the NHL signed Korpisalo to a three-year entry-level contract.

During the latter half of the 2016–17 NHL season, Korpisalo took over as the Blue Jackets's backup goaltender behind Sergei Bobrovsky. On June 9, 2017, the Blue Jackets signed Korpisalo to a two-year contract extension. When Bobrovsky left to join the Florida Panthers in free agency before the 2019–20 season, Korpisalo became the Blue Jackets' starting goaltender. However, after injuring his knee in a shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on 29 December, rookie goaltender Elvis Merzlikins became the new starter.

On 17 April 2020, Korpisalo signed a two-year contract extension worth $5.6 million to stay with the Blue Jackets.

Korpisalo made his NHL playoff debut for the Blue Jackets on 2 August 2020. Korpisalo did not allow a goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 2–0 victory, becoming the first Blue Jackets goaltender to record a shutout in the playoffs. On 9 August 2020, Korpisalo would again shutout the Maple Leafs by a 3–0 score, eliminating them from the playoffs and securing a series win for the Blue Jackets. Two days later in Game 1 of the First Round, he would set a new modern NHL record for saves made in a single game with 85, despite a 3–2 defeat in quintuple overtime versus the Tampa Bay Lightning, surpassing Kelly Hrudey who made 73 saves 33 years prior.

Personal

Joonas is the son of former Liiga forward Jari Korpisalo.
