Report: Teemu Selanne Interested in KHL

Last summer, Teemu Selanne announced in a video that he would return to the Anaheim Ducks for one more season.

However, the Finnish Flash may not be done.

Earlier today, a report came out of Finland saying that Selanne is contemplating playing for his hometown team, Jokerit, next year.

Jokerit will join the KHL for the 2014-2015 season.

A chance to play in his hometown is intriguing to Selanne.

I think it would be a good experience,” Selanne said. “I am ready to go to the KHL and start a new era. [Jokerit] would be a really great scenario. I figured that in this business you can never say ‘no’. Going there would be a great adventure. – Selanne in an interview with Sport-Express in Russia

Selanne, who is finishing up his 23rd season in the NHL, has spent most of his career with the Anaheim Ducks. He also had stints with the Winnipeg Jets, San Jose Sharks, and Colorado Avalanche.

This season, Selanne finished with 27 points on nine goals and 18 assists. He is closing in on 700 goals as he sits on 684 for his career.

Selanne has also had a successful international career. He completed his international career at the Olympics with three bronze medals and silver medal in 2006. In February, Selanne led Team Finland to the bronze medal in Sochi.

In the meantime, Selanne and the Ducks are awaiting the winner of the San Jose-Los Angeles series. Selanne has three assists in five playoff games this season.

No matter what Selanne decides to do following this season, he will always be remembered fondly in Anaheim.
