Teemu Selanne’s NHL future is still up in the air, but the chances he returns to action for one more season have improved.

According to Timo Kunnari of Finnish site MTV3 (link in Finnish), the 43-year-old future Hall of Famer recently met with Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray.

As was shared at, Selanne is making sure to make the right choice whether to play or hang it up.

“This is the biggest decision of my career. I have three options,” Selanne recently told Iltalehti (a newspaper in Finland), which was translated by NHL.fin correspondent Risto Pakarinen. “It’s up to me, if I feel like it, I can focus on golf.”

If nothing else, Claude Giroux proved tonight that golf isn’t without its perils either. As for talk about Selanne possibly signing with someone other than Anaheim, don’t buy into that. He’s said the past few seasons that it would either be Anaheim or retirement and that’s apparently the case again this time.

    I remember playing NHL 94 on Sega when I was 5 or 6. I loved Teemu in that game…. even if I had no clue who he was as I wasnt a hockey fan and not coming from a hockey family. I hope he comes back. Absolute pleasure to watch and I wanna see that goal celebration one last time where he throws his gloves and shoots them with his stick.
