Teemu Selanne headed for Sochi Olympics with Team Finland
HELSINKI (AP) -- Finland veteran Teemu Selanne has been selected to play at his sixth Winter Olympics.
The 43-year-old Anaheim Ducks player has twice been the top scorer at the Olympics and was chosen as the best player at the Turin Games in 2006.
Another veteran, Saku Koivu, won't be part of the team after telling Finland coach Erkka Westerlund that he doesn't feel in good enough shape to play at the Olympics.
Finland was the bronze medalist at the 2010 Olympics and silver medalist four years earlier.
