Nummelin is considered to be the biggest icon of the TPS hockey organization. His number 3 jersey has been retired and can only be used by his son Petteri Nummelin. Nummelin is also known for his goal celebration, in which he imitates playing a violin with his stick. This is mentioned in TPS's goal song "Hunajata" with the words "soi viulu" (the violin plays) in the chorus.
