Playing career

Miettinen was drafted by the Dallas Stars as their seventh-round pick, 224th overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to playing in the NHL, Miettinen played for five years in the SM-Liiga with HPK Hämeenlinna picking up the Kultainen kypärä and the Lasse Oksanen trophy in his final year in Finland.

Miettinen spent two-years in the AHL before playing his first full season in the NHL in the 2005–06 season with the Stars.

On July 3, 2008, Miettinen signed a 3-year $7 million contract with the Minnesota Wild.[1]

He was chosen to play for Finland in the 2006 Winter Olympics but was unable to participate due to an upper body injury. He was replaced on the team by Niklas Hagman.
