Selänne is arguably the best Finnish player of all time. He was known as an excellent skater throughout his career, which earned him the nickname Finnish Flash. The prolific sniper became a phenomenon in the NHL already in his rookie season. In addition, he was respected as a player and a leader by his teammates, coaches and even by players from the opposing teams.
