Highlights
1-time SM-liiga Champion 1

A calm playmaker with very good puck control. Filppula is a pass-first player with good hands and excellent vision. Not a fast or smooth skater. Somewhat of a late-bloomer, Filppula made his big break in the 2009-2010 season as a 28-year-old. (Matias Strozyk, 2011)

Brother: Valtteri Filppula
