The Jari Kurri trophy is an ice hockey trophy awarded by the Finnish SM-liiga to the best player in the SM-liiga playoffs. The trophy is named after Jari Kurri.

In the 2005-06 season, the trophy was awarded to the player voted the best player in the playoffs by the fans by a short message service vote. This practice was discontinued after only one season. Starting in 2007, the trophy was awarded to the winner immediately after the final game of the playoffs instead of at the SM-liiga awards ceremony.
