Stat Line Of The Night — 11/1/11 — Teemu Selanne
Teemu Selanne is a lot like a fine wine. He only seems to be getting better with age.
The “Stat Line of the Night” is usually reserved for those whose stats help lead their team to a victory, but today we switch our focus and honor those whose stats truly defy Father Time. At 41-years-old, Selanne continues to do just that. The Ducks’ forward entered last night’s game against the Washington Capitals with ten points in 11 games this season, and he added another four to his total, recording two goals and two assists during an 5-4 overtime loss.
His 14 points on the season have him tied for fifth in the league and he appears destined to repeat his 2010-11 performance that saw him finish eighth in the league in points, with 80. Unfortunately, his four point effort last night wasn’t enough to get his team the win, but it was enough to earn him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Tuesday, November 1, 2011.
