In perhaps the greatest use of social media ever, the Anaheim Ducks and Teemu Selanne announced that he will in fact return for a “final” (heard that before) NHL season. While the 43 year-old Helsinki native has seen a decline in his last two years, the Finnish Flash could be set for a resurgence as a beneficiary of the Bobby Ryan trade. Having played for four teams throughout an illustrious career, it is hard to name a player as well respected amongst fellow players and fans as Teemu. In 1387 NHL games he has accomplished the following: 675 goals (11th all-time, 2nd amongst active players) 1430 points (15th all-time, 2nd amongst active players) 76 goals as a rookie (an NHL record since 1992-93) 18, 20+ goal seasons 7, 40+ goal seasons 10 time all-star Selanne is 6th all-time with 107 game-wining-goals.

Anaheim Ducks right-winger Teemu Selanne is coming back for a 21st NHL season announcing his return Friday with a YouTube video.
Selanne 43 scored 31 goals and 80 points two seasons ago but his offensive production has tailed off since to 26 goals and 66 points in the 2011-12 season to 12 goals and 24 points in 46 games a year ago during the lockout-shortened campaign.
Teemu Selanne is coming back to the National Hockey League for another go around.

I think a better reflection of the arc and illustriousness of his career is note that he was once depicted like this in a video...

Unfortunately, that means that this is his last year, but at least us greedy hockey fans are getting one more year out of the man who will probably forever claim the rookie scoring record...
