Ageless in Anaheim

 

Teemu Selanne says he’s far from finished with hockey, and the Anaheim Ducks are grateful he’s still not feeling his age. The 42-year-old Selanne agreed Thursday to a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Ducks to return for the 20th NHL season of his remarkable career. Selanne (pictured right) could end up being the NHL’s oldest active player next season, yet he shows no signs of slowing after leading the Ducks in scoring last season. Only Gordie Howe scored more points as a 41-year-old than Selanne’s 66 last season. “Sometimes, age is just a number,” Selanne said in a phone interview while on vacation in Italy. “Age is a funny thing. A lot of times, I don’t really feel 42.” Selanne is the 19th-leading scorer in NHL history with 1,406 points. – Associated Press
