Tomi Kristian Kallio (born 27 January 1977) is a Finnish professional ice hockey right winger who currently plays for Växjö Lakers Hockey in the Swedish Elitserien.

Playing career[edit]

Kallio was drafted 81st overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft and began his professional career with TPS of the SM-liiga and spent five seasons there, winning the championship trophy in 1999 and 2000.

He then moved to the National Hockey League with the Atlanta Thrashers who claimed him from Colorado in the 1999 NHL Expansion Draft. He spent two seasons in Atlanta before he was traded with Pauli Levokari to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Petteri Nummelin and Chris Nielsen. He would play just 12 games for Columbus before claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Flyers, playing just seven games before moving to Sweden to play for Västra Frölunda HC where he continues to play and is in his sixth season with the team. He has won the Le Mat Trophy twice with Frölunda, in 2003 and 2005.

On 19 January 2009, Kallio extended his contract with Frölunda HC by two years.[1] After being denied another extension after his contract expired in 2011, Kallio signed a two-year contract with Växjö Lakers Hockey in the Elitserien.[2] In the 2011 European Trophy, Kallio visited the Frölunda–Salzburg game in Frölunda Campus to be thanked by a few thousands Frölunda supporters for his time in Frölunda. Frölunda won the game 3–2.[3]
