Last year at this time Teemu Selanne was gearing up for his 13th and final trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Retirement has afforded him the opportunity to do something altogether different.

Selanne served as a caddy for Finnish pro golfer Mikko Ilonen at the Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday. The event is an annual prelude to the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. The Masters begins Thursday.

Getty Images snapped pictures of Selanne wearing white overalls and a Masters hat while holding Ilonen's clubs.

Selanne, fans may remember, was also on the golf course in August 2013 to shoot his famous video with the Anaheim Ducks to announce he was returning for one more season.

Selanne was shown hacking up the course, particularly the bunkers, throwing his clubs in the lake and chasing after them because his cell phone was in his bag. He went into the water, got his phone and pretended to call Ducks general manager Bob Murray to say he would be back for his final season.

Selanne finished his career with 684 goals and 1,457 points in 1,451 games and won the Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007.
