The Kanada-malja.

The Kanada-malja is an ice hockey club championship trophy, awarded annually to the SM-liiga playoffs champion. Kanada-malja is Finnish for "Canada Cup", and is so named because it was donated by Canada's Finnish community in 1951.

The winner of the regular season title receives the "Harry Lindbladin muistopalkinto", which is not considered as prestigious as the Kanada-malja.
