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.

Jaromir Jagr of the Dallas Stars is 10th with 671 goals, 19 behind Mario Lemieux in ninth place.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
