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
Claude Noel (pictured) has been fired as coach by the Winnipeg Jets and replaced with Paul Maurice. Noel was fired amid a five-game losing streak that dropped the Jets to 19-23-5 and 10 points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Noel, hired after the Atlanta Thrashers moved to Winnipeg before the 2011-12 season, went 80-79-18 during his tenure with the Jets. “I think it always comes as a shock,” Jets captain Andrew Ladd said at a local rink after Jets’ practice was cancelled in the wake of the news. Assistant coach Perry Pearn was also fired. Maurice’s first game will be Monday in a home game against Phoenix. This will be the third franchise he has coached, after the Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
