Winnipeg Jets legend Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya, Danielle Goyette, Mark Recchi and Dave Andreychuk were all formally inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last night in Toronto.

Throughout his 27-year professional career, Selanne has 1457 points in 1451 games.

Selanne won the Calder Memorial Trophy in 1992-1993, the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy in 1998-1999, and the Bill Masterton Trophy in 2005-2006. Selanne was also a members of the Anaheim Ducks’ 2007 Stanley Cup team.

On the international stage, he played in five World Championships, winning a silver and bronze medal, and in three Canada Cup tournaments. A six-time Olympian, Selanne helped Finland win three bronze medals, and a silver medal in 2006. He is currently the all-time leader in scoring at Olympic ice hockey tournaments with 43 points.

Selanne is the highest scoring Finnish player in NHL history, he was named to 10 NHL All-Star Games, four post-season All-Star teams, and was named to the 100 Greatest NHL Players in history earlier this year.
