Well he looked like a kid yesterday as 40 year old Teemu Selanne killed his old team with five points last night in a Ducks victory over the Avs. The Avalanche have become infamous for allowing ex players to have big games and for allowing milestone goals and last night they achieved both. Not only did Selanne have three goals and two assist but he became the first player over 40 to have a five point game and the oldest player to have a penalty shot goal. Boy oh boy do the Avs know how to find their way into the record books! Hopefully whatever draft pick we wind up with this season repays the favor for us!
