Bio

Valtteri Filppula Bio

While representing his country, the native of Vantaa, Finland played for a medal in his next three international appearances after the 2002 IIHF Under-18 World Championship. The forward twice finished third at the IIHF World Junior Championship (2003, 2004), won a bronze medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, two years after winning the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings in 2008.

Though Filppula has rarely been the focal point on his teams, he's been an ideal complementary player who has filled various roles: scoring-line center, checking-line forward, penalty-killer defensive-zone face-offs and quarterbacking the power play.
