Lately the Finnish players on the Anaheim Ducks have been getting a lot of notoriety. Namely, Teemu Selanne.
Selanne, who recently scored his 600th career goal, has since surpassed his personal idol Jari Kurri and scored goals Nos. 601, 602, and 603. Selanne now sits solely in the No. 17 position of all-time goals scored, and is now eighth on the all-time list of power play goals scored.
But enough about the Finnish Flash and his career accomplishments.
It's time we took a look at the other Finn on the Ducks roster and the impact he's been having on his new team since leaving Montreal.
Let's talk about Saku Koivu.
Koivu has recently been named as one of the NHL's second start of the week, and it is deservedly so.
Koivu, who was acquired prior to the start of the 2009-10 season when he became a free agent after spending 13 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, has been a fabulous addition to the Anaheim roster. The following is five things that Koivu has brought to the Ducks this season and hopefully in seasons to come.
