Ilari Filppula (born November 5, 1981 in Vantaa, Finland) is a Finnish professional ice hockey forward currently signed by the Detroit Red Wings. He is the older brother of Valtteri Filppula.

Filppula started his pro career in Kiekko-Vantaa, in the Finnish lower leagues, and after two years with JYP, he spent a season with Jokerit, and then returned to JYP with a two-year contract. In 2008, he signed a 2-year contract with TPS. Filppula won the Jari Kurri trophy in 2010.

On June 15, 2010, Filppula signed a two-way contract with the Detroit Red Wings, where his brother Valtteri has played since 2005.[1] His performance at training camp will determine how his time is divided between the Red Wings in the 2010-11 season and their American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins.[2]
