Teemu Selanne
The “Finnish Flash” had one of the most spectacular rookie seasons in NHL history. Teemu Selanne scored a whopping 76 goals and 132 points for the Winnipeg Jets and became an instant sensation. Statistically, Selanne did not reach those heights again, although he would have three more seasons where he hit the century mark in points. Selanne remained a star into his 40’s and was putting pucks in the net at an age where many people struggle to get off of the couch

Selanne has also taken the Finnish national team deeper into the Olympic competition than their country realistically had the right to be. Although he does not possess any Gold medals, he does own three of a different color and is the current all-time leader of point in Olympic competition.  This was an easy decision to put Selanne in the top spot, much like it will be an easy decision for the Hockey Hall of Fame to induct him quickly.
