Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne will not play in Game 4 of Anaheim's playoff series against the Stars Wednesday night. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: Selanne is a future Hall of Famer but the Ducks aren't relying much on the 43-year-old, who's in his final season. He'll be a healthy scratch as the Ducks try to go up 3-1 on Dallas.
 
4/12/2014 2:50:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne will miss Saturday's game to rest.
Insight: The 43-year-old has contributed just 27 points in 63 games this season, but will be ready to go in the playoffs. Once a 100-point-a-year fantasy stud, he's a part-timer now.
 
3/30/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne missed Saturday's game to rest.
Insight: Selanne should be back Monday against the Jets. The 43-year-old has contributed five points (two goals) over his last six games but just 25 points in 58 games this season.
 
3/7/2014 2:54:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne is questionable for Friday's game against Pittsburgh due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Selanne has just one point since Jan 30 (he's played six of eight games). No coincidently, he's not gotten as much as 14 minutes of ice time in any of the six games. Once a 100-point socrer, it's time to look elsewhere for fantasy offense.
 
12/7/2013 8:02:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne will take a seat Saturday against the Blues. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: It's just a routine rest day for the veteran. Selanne hasn't recorded a point since October. Fantasy owners would be wise to look elsewhere.
 
11/30/2013 4:03:00 PM
Description: Anaheim right wing Teemu Selanne is resting Saturday against San Jose. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: It doesn't sound like he's dealing with any specific injury but at age 43, Selanne's body isn't as resilient as it used to be. He should be fine for Tuesday's contest against the Kings.
 
11/6/2013 3:00:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne is back after missing three games due to oral surgery. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: He's back about a week earlier than expected. Selanne needed 40 stitches and lost several teeth after taking a high stick to the face last week against the Flyers.
 
10/30/2013 1:11:00 PM
Description: Anaheim right wing Teemu Selanne will sit out two weeks after suffering a gruesome mouth injury Tuesday against the Flyers. SOURCE: Ducks.com
Insight: Selanne took a high stick to the mouth and wound up losing several teeth. He also needed 40 stitches. Before the injury, he had seven points (three goals, four assists) and a -1 rating in 11 games.
 
10/4/2013 9:07:00 PM
Description: According to the Orange County Register, Ducks veteran forward Teemu Selanne won't play Saturday.
Insight: He'll return to action Sunday. To keep Selanne fresh, the Ducks will sit him for one game of their 12 back-to-backs this season.
 
Cold4/25/2013 4:08:00 PM
Description: Eric Stephens from the Orange Country Register has confirmed that Anaheim right wing Teemu Selanne won't be on the ice Thursday against the Canucks.
Insight: Selanne hasn't scored in any of his last four games so he could probably use the rest. The Ducks have already locked up the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference so it's possible Selanne might also miss Saturday's contest versus Phoenix.
 
4/25/2013 9:16:00 AM
Description: Ducks winger Teemu Selanne could be a healthy scratch Thursday night, according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau wants Selanne to get some rest before the playoffs. The 42-year-old has had a down season, producing 23 points in 45 games.
 
2/10/2013 3:06:00 PM
Description: Anaheim right wing Teemu Selanne notched four points (1 G, 3 A) with three SOG and a plus-3 Saturday versus St. Louis.
Insight: With four goals and 14 points, the ageless wonder has been a driving force behind Anaheim's hot start. This might be a great time to sell high on the 42-year-old before the heavy part of the schedule picks up (Anaheim has 21 games in 37 days from Feb. 24 to April 1).
 
1/20/2013 11:12:00 AM
Description: Ancient Anaheim forward Teemu Selanne notched two goals and two assists Saturday in his season debut.
Insight: The theme of the NHL's opening weekend seems to be "Wait, he still plays?" First Jaromir Jagr (turns 41 next month) and now Selanne (age 42)? How do these dinosaurs keep doing it? Simply amazing.
 
7/12/2012 2:50:00 PM
Description: According to the Los Angeles Times, Teemu Selanne has signed a one-year contract extension to stay in Anaheim.
Insight: The 42-year-old Selanne still has fantasy value after he scored 66 points (26 G, 40 A) with 50 PIM, 28 PPP and 210 SOG last season, though it's unlikely he can stay on the ice for 82 games again.
 
6/19/2012 5:46:00 PM
Description: According to the Orange County Register, Teemu Selanne is expected to be back with the Anaheim Ducks for another season in 2012-13.
Insight: The 41-year-old winger is working out in his native Finland. Selanne is expected to inform the Ducks of his decision by July 1. Despite his advanced age, Selanne still has fantasy value after he scored 66 points (26 G, 40 A) with 50 PIM, 28 PPP and 210 SOG last season.
 
12/18/2011 12:52:00 AM
Description: Teemu Selanne recorded two assists in the Ducks' 5-3 loss to Winnipeg on Saturday. NHL.com
Insight: Selanne was the story of this game, as the former Calder Trophy winner was playing in his first game in Winnipeg since being traded from the original Jets in 1996. In the here and now, Selanne is currently on an eight-game point streak, which is tied for the longest streak of the season.
 
11/2/2011 12:08:00 AM
Description: Teemu Selanne scored two goals and added two assists with a +3 in the Ducks' 5-4 loss to Washington on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: The Finnish Flash has picked up right where he left off last season, scoring 14 points (5g-9a) in 12 games this season, with 11 of those points over his last 6 games. The 41-year-old Selanne looks like he could play another ten more seasons.
 
9/15/2011 10:13:00 PM
Description: The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed Teemu Selanne to a one-year contract worth $4 million. TSN
Insight: Selanne underwent knee surgery during the offseason, so he needed most of the summer to determine whether he would be 100 percent for the upcoming season. He seems to have a lot left in the tank, considering that he finished eighth in league scoring last season with 80 points, the third-best season in league history for a player 40 or over.
 
8/6/2011 2:46:00 PM
Description: According to a Finnish newspaper, Teemu Selanne will not make a decision about his playing future until September at the earliest. TSN
Insight: Selanne is also recovering from a knee injury, which is likely factoring into his decision. Keeper leaguers should probably look in another direction if deciding whether to keep Selanne. However, he could turn out to be a great value pick in fantasy leagues again this season, but fantasy owners will need to hold off on making any long-term plans until he makes his decision.
 
7/1/2011 10:02:00 AM
Description: Teemu Selanne underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee on Thursday. TSN
Insight: The recovery from the knee surgery could delay Selanne's annual decision on whether to return for another season. He is a free agent but indicated that he would only play for the Ducks if he decides to return. Keep monitoring his situation, as he is still very much relevant in fantasy leagues (80 points last season).
