Former NHL goaltender Mika Noronen has been convicted of tax fraud in his home country of Finland after failing to include his NHL pension on his tax return.

Former NHL goaltender MIka Noronen, who was a former first round pick for the Buffalo Sabres and the Vancouver Canucks, has been caught up in a crime in his home country of Finland regarding tax fraud. It was reported that the former NHLer "forgot" to file his NHL pension on his recent tax return.
According to Ilta Sanomat, Noronen was actually given a 60 day jail sentence, but it was suspended by a judge because of his clean criminal record. Noronen can avoid jail time by completing certain conditions. The prosecution asked for 8 months.
"It was his NHL pension. Noronen played in the NHL for several seasons during his career and was entitled to a pension of almost [$150,000 USD].

The pension was triggered when the ex-goalkeeper turned 40 in June, 2019. Noronen reported his tax number to the US authorities in Finland and requested payment to a Finnish bank account.

The money arrived in Noronen's account. The following spring, Noronen received a pre-filled tax return but failed to declare his pension income."

Interesting to see what lies ahead for the former NHL netminder.
