Result unimportant, Legends Classic means everything to participants

Sights, sounds from Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Weekend's showcase on ice

by Dave Stubbs @Dave_Stubbs / NHL.com Columnist

TORONTO -- The optics, Mark Messier agreed, didn't look good.

Messier, the captain of a team representing Canada, and Jari Kurri, the captain of a team representing the world, didn't merely arrive at Air Canada Centre at the same time for the 2017 Haggar Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic on Sunday.

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.

TORONTO -- Cam Cole was in awe.

It was his first visit to Great Hall at the Hockey Hall of Fame. He doesn't remember how old he was or what year it was. He does remember Gordie Howe being there.

Housley: Speed, skill, IQ set Selanne apart

2015 Inductee reflects on amazing start to career of Finnish Flash

by Phil Housley / Special to NHL.com

Phil Housley was a major factor in the spectacular season authored by forward Teemu Selanne, who scored an NHL-rookie-record 76 goals and 132 points in 1992-93 when each was a member of the Winnipeg Jets. Housley, inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2015, had the best season (97 points in 80 games) of his 22-season NHL career in the one season he was Selanne's teammate. They have been good friends since. After he retired in 2003, Housley turned to coaching. He spent four seasons as an assistant with the Nashville Predators and was hired as the coach of the Buffalo Sabres on June 15. Here, Housley shares his thoughts on Selanne, who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, in a special testimonial for NHL.com:
