The Finnish Flash hinted this morning this game might be a little easier for him than his "first" return in December 2011, when adoring Winnipeg fans celebrated him, booed his teammates and cheered the Jets on to a victory that night.
"I had a chance to come two years ago and that was unbelievable," Selanne said after this morning’s skate downtown. "I don’t really expect anything like that tonight, but it’s fun to be here.
"I almost hoped I wouldn’t have to come back here because that was an absolutely perfect night. We lost, but it was something I was always going to remember.
"This place is so nice, the fans unbelievable. I’m very happy I have a chance to come back one more time."

Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis was taken to the hospital after feeling "unwell" during Saturday night's game, according to a team spokesman.
Nonis was feeling sick during the second period and saw team physicians at Air Canada Centre.
"As a precaution, (Nonis) was asked to go to the hospital for further testing," a Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment statement released Sunday read. "He has progressed very well overnight and is expected to be discharged today."
