Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame
The Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame is part of the Vapriikki Museum Centre in Tampere, Finland and was created in 1979 to honor those individuals who have contributed to Finnish ice hockey. The Hall has displays and memorabilia that depict the significant contributions of players, coaches, referees and other important figures in the sport.
The Hall of Fame also inducts notable players, coaches, referees and other personalities, naming them Suomen Jääkiekkoleijona (hockey lions of Finland). The first inductees were honored in 1985 and are recorded with an inductee number. Currently, there are 218 inductees in the hall of fame.
