PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

Several members of the Anaheim Ducks talked about what Teemu Selanne has meant to them. The 43-year-old forward will hang up his skates once the Ducks’ playoff run concludes. (

    I ran into Teemu in Orange County the year the Ducks won the cup. Very good guy. He was very generous with his time. We chatted about the the playoff run that led to the SC. He said that when the team was watching the Sens vs Sabres knock out the Sabres, the team had no doubt they were going to beat the Sens to win he SC. People close to the Ducks have only good things to say about him. Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy playing golf every week in SoCal.
