Kariya, Selanne reunite on ice

Former teammates skate together at Haggar Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

TORONTO -- For a moment, it was the 1990s or 2000s again. Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne weren't part of the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2017 yet. They were part of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim or Colorado Avalanche, teammates, linemates, in their primes.

Kariya took a between-the-legs drop pass from Selanne, stickhandled into the slot and fired a wrist shot five-hole. Goal, Kariya. Assist, Selanne. Team Kurri took a 6-5 lead against Team Messier in the Haggar Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic at Air Canada Centre on Sunday.
