Commemorative merchandise (t-shirts, pucks, etc.) marking Selanne's 600-goal milestone will be available for purchase at the Anaheim Ducks Team Store beginning Monday evening prior to puck drop.

During the pregame ceremony, Selanne will be presented with gifts from the team for his historic achievement. He will also be greeted by Ducks owners Henry and Susan Samueli, and special guest, NHL Hall-of-Famer Jari Kurri.

Kurri, who played for the Ducks with Selanne during the 1996-97 season, was Selanne’s childhood idol and is a longtime friend. He will be flying in from Finland specifically for the ceremony. Kurri is a five-time Stanley Cup winner and was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame in 2001. He ranks 17th in all-time NHL goals with 601 during his famed career (601-797=1398 points in 1,251 games). With his 600th goal on Sunday, Mar. 21 vs. Colorado, Selanne became the 18th player to reach the milestone and moved to within one goal of tying Kurri on the NHL’s all-time goals list. Already the NHL’s active leader in goals, Selanne is the third European player to score 600 NHL goals, following Jaromir Jagr (CZE) and Kurri (FIN). He also became the seventh right winger in league history to join the list (also Gordie Howe, Brett Hull, Mike Gartner, Jagr, Dino Ciccarelli and Kurri).

In 1,178 career NHL games, Selanne has scored 600-648=1,248 points, ranking 35th in all-time points and 57th in all-time assists. With 373-406=779 points in 693 games in an Anaheim uniform (1996-2001 & 2005-10), Selanne is the Ducks’ franchise leader in goals, assists, points, power play goals (143), power play points (325), game-winning goals (65), plus/minus (+111)  and games played. He won his first Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007 in his 14th NHL season. Selanne has also won three Olympic medals (bronze in 1998, silver in 2006 and bronze in 2010) and is the all-time Olympic men’s hockey scorer with 20-17=37 points in 31 career games.
