Eevi Huttunen, married Pirinen, (born 23 August 1922) is a former speed skater from Finland. She was born in Karttula.

Being for a decade almost the only female skater able to compete against the Soviet ladies on the longer distances, Huutunen made a comeback specially for the 1960 Winter Olympics (the first where women speed skaters were allowed to compete), where she managed to win the bronze on the 3000 m. She competed in eleven World Allround Championships which was till 1960 the only international speed skating event for women, from 1948 to 1960 (every year except 1956 and 1958), winning the 1951 event and being on many occasions the best non-soviet skater, certainly in the longer distances.
