When it comes to talking about the great European hockey players, one name that should always be brought up is the “Finnish Flash”, Anaheim Ducks’ forward Teemu Selanne.
At 40 years old, it is simply amazing what Selanne has accomplished for the playoff-bound Ducks this season. In 72 games played this season, Selanne is second on the Ducks in scoring with 80 points (31 goals and 49 assists), which is also good for eighth in the National Hockey League.
Selanne has especially been great for the Ducks during the last month or so as the team was making its push toward the playoffs. He was making big plays, setting up and scoring big goals (5 game winning goals) both at even strength and on the power play (16 power play goals) and was being a terrific leader on the ice.
This was even more apparent in the Ducks’ 2-1 playoff-clinching victory over the Los Angeles Kings. In leading the Ducks to their big victory, Selanne scored both goals and was instrumental to his team when it mattered the most.
