Teemu Selanne’s NHL career may be over, but does the 44-year-old still have one more season left as a professional hockey player?

Selanne is apparently considering a return to the team of his youth, Finnish squad Jokerit. He says he’ll make a decision on that in the next three weeks.

Jokerit is making its KHL debut next season.

Chicago’s Teuvo Teravainen played for the Helsinki-based club before coming to the NHL.
