Hockey in Hollywood at Dodger Stadium really got exciting when I saw my one of my favorite players and people of all time, Teemu Selanne.
I have never seen this guy without a huge smile and sharing great enthusiasm in every conversation….
I swear he swallows nice pills.
This guy is not only one of the best players the NHL will ever see, but one of the greatest people on the planet.
He is a freak of nature at 43 years old, continuing to play at such a high level enduring the rigorous grind of the NHL. He is the definition of what it is to be passionate for the greatest game on earth.
I honestly don’t know how he does it, he has to be aching all over his body, but yet he said when I asked him about him playing again, that he was so excited to play more hockey and get over to Sochi to represent his country!
Hmm, maybe this is why he played another season in the NHL — to have that opportunity to represent Finland at the 2014 Olympic Games, because he is so proud.
I’m sure Teemu will represent the Ducks well today in this awesome outdoor event against the LA Kings.
Tune in on NBCSN tonight and watch two of the best teams in the league battle it out under the stars. JR
