WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Teemu Selanne is looking forward to returning to the city where he was dubbed the Finnish Flash.

The Anaheim Ducks' 41-year-old right-winger started his NHL career with the old Winnipeg Jets in 1992, and his 76 goals and 132 points in that season still stand as a rookie record, earning him a Calder Trophy.

He still has friends in the city and marked the Ducks' game Saturday at Winnipeg on his calendar as soon as the schedule came out. Selanne also enjoys spotting his old former Jets No. 13 jersey in a crowd.

He says the "memories I have from there were so awesome."
