ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Anaheim Ducks will retire Teemu Selanne's No. 8 jersey in a ceremony on Jan. 11.
The Ducks announced plans for the franchise's first number retirement Friday.
Selanne retired this year after a 21-season NHL career spent mostly with the Ducks. The Finnish Flash is Anaheim's career leader in goals, assists, games played and several other statistical categories.
Selanne will be honored when the Ducks host the Winnipeg Jets, his first NHL team. Selanne played nearly four seasons in Winnipeg, winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie before he was traded to Anaheim in February 1996.
Selanne is the 11th-leading goal-scorer in NHL history with 684, and his 1,457 career points rank 15th in league history.
Selanne also is a six-time Olympian for Finland, winning four medals.
