GWMHL

A Stick-Tap for Selanne

In EDH, News on October 14, 2015 at 8:55 am

With retirement on the way and his rights on the verge of being relinquished for good, we bid adieu to one of the GWMHL’s all-time greats.

The El Dorado Lynx‘s Teemu Selanne was unquestionably one of the best offensive players in league history. After 21 seasons, all with the same franchise, Selanne is 1st all-time in both goals and points, and 4th in assists. Those records may fall in the next season or three — Jarome Iginla is 69 goals behind while the ageless Jaromir Jagr trails Selanne by just 38 points — but none of that matters today. Selanne, who began his GWMHL career as the first overall pick in the league’s first ever draft, retires a legend.

Selanne now passes the mantle to Jagr, who is now the only remaining active player from the inaugural GWMHL season.

Selanne’s legacy in a nutshell:

  • – 17 seasons with 20 or more goals, with 5 breaking 50
  • – 4 100-point campaigns
  • – 4 league championships
