Anaheim's Teemu Selanne scored in the first period of the Ducks' game against Minnesota on Friday night, moving him past Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille into 11th place on the all-time goals list.
The 42-year-old took the puck on the right wing, swung to the backhand and flipped it past goaltender Darcy Kuemper. It was his sixth goal of the season and the 669th of his NHL career, breaking a tie with Robitaille.
That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
