Anaheim Ducks to retire Teemu Selanne’s jersey Jan. 11

 

The Anaheim Ducks will retire Teemu Selanne’s No. 8 jersey in a ceremony on Jan. 11. The Ducks announced plans for the franchise’s first number retirement Friday. Anaheim will raise Selanne’s jersey to the Honda Center rafters on “Teemu Tribute Night” when they host the Winnipeg Jets, Selanne’s first NHL team. “Teemu is our franchise icon and deserves to be the first player in club history to have his jersey retired,” Ducks owner Henry Samueli said. Selanne retired this year after a 21-season NHL career spent mostly with the Ducks. He is the 11th-leading goal-scorer in NHL history with 684, and his 1,457 career points rank 15th. – AP
