Brian Finley (b. July 13, 1981 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario) is a non-active professional ice hockey goalie. Finley is 6 feet 3 inches tall and 200 pounds in weight. Finley was drafted by the Nashville Predators in the first round, sixth overall of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

Finley played most of his junior hockey as a member of the Barrie Colts of the OHL, before being traded in his final year to the Brampton Battalion. While with the Barrie Colts he led the team to the Finals of the Memorial Cup in 2000 where they lost to the Rimouski Océanic 6–3. Finley played as primarily the backup goalie for the Canadian Junior Hockey Team at the World Junior Hockey Tournament in 1999 and 2000.

Finley spent the majority of his career playing in the AHL for the Milwaukee Admirals as a solid goalie. He won the Calder Trophy with the Admirals in 2004. He played two career games for the Nashville Predators in the NHL, allowing 10 goals in 107 minutes.

When the Predators chose not to renew his contract after the 2005–06 season Finley signed as a free agent with the Boston Bruins on July 17, 2006. During the 2006–07 season he played ten games for the Providence Bruins and two games for the Boston Bruins. After the 2006–07 season Finley was an unrestricted free agent and was unable to sign with another team effectively ending his hockey career.
