Right Wing, Anaheim Ducks: 1,259 GP, 637 G, 703 A, 1,340 P, plus-98
Anaheim Ducks TV announcer John Ahlers loves to describe Teemu Selanne quite accurately: "He's like fine wine; he only gets better with age."
The one that they call "The Finnish Flash" will turn 41 this offseason, and while he is currently mulling over the thought of retirement, it's hard to imagine why.
Just this past season alone, Selanne set a benchmark by becoming only the third player in NHL history to average more than a point per game played at the age of 40.
His 31 goals were tops in the league for anyone at his age, including 16 of them on the power play.
In the playoffs, he scored six goals in the Ducks' six-game series loss to the Nashville Predators.
It might be hard to believe, but this past season was just a notch on what has been a phenomenal career.
Selanne holds a record that many people believe will never be broken again when he scored a mind-blowing 76 goals in his rookie season with the Winnipeg Jets.
While he is second all time in Finnish-born scoring, he trails Jari Kurri by only 58 points. Should he play next season, that record could very likely fall (with 80 points last season, it's hard to think he wouldn't break that record).
All of this, in my mind, makes Teemu Selanne the best Finnish-born player in history.
