Ducks’ Selanne Still Going Strong At 40

ANAHEIM (AP) — Teemu Selanne says his mind is like an elevator when he thinks about whether he’ll retire from hockey this summer.

Until then, the 40-year-old Finnish Flash is focused on taking the Anaheim Ducks straight to the top.

Selanne is on a remarkable goal-scoring binge late in Anaheim’s playoff push. After getting two clutch goals in a key win over Dallas last week, he had a hat trick and five points for the Ducks
in a 5-4 win over Colorado on Monday night.

A year after he first postponed retirement, Selanne is playing even better.

He’s the league’s eighth-leading scorer with 75 points during the third highest-scoring season by a player in his 40s in NHL history.

Selanne says the only reason he’s still around is because hockey is still fun.
