Timo Turunen (born April 8, 1948 in Kuusjärvi, Finland) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played in the SM-liiga. He played for Jokerit. He was inducted into the Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame in 2004.

Playing career

Most notably Turunen was part of Jokerit's top line which consisted of Pentti Hiiros and Timo Kyntölä. Due to the line's short height (Hiiros was the tallest at 172cm of height), the line was nicknamed "Nallipyssy-ketju", "The Cap-Gun line".

Even though, Turunen was a profilic player for Jokerit and he served as the captain of the team for two separate occasions.

Turunen ended his playing career in 1981.
