He joins only two other European-born players in the 600-goal club: Finnish countryman Jari Kurri (601) and the Czech Republic’s Jaromir Jagr (646).

The 39-year-old Selanne is the fourth player to reach the milestone in the last four seasons, along with Jagr, Brendan Shanahan and Joe Sakic.

Teemu scored 34 seconds into the second period, into a wide-open net during a power play with goalie Craig Anderson out of position after a furious scramble in front of the crease. Anderson became the 133rd goalie that Selanne has scored against in the regular season. His first NHL goal came against San Jose’s Jeff Hackett on October 8, 1992.

Selanne says he remembers it well, “It was at the Cow Palace against the Sharks.”

In addition to shattering Mike Bossy’s previous rookie record of 63 goals,Selanne had 110 points to break Peter Statsny’s rookie record and ran away with the Calder Cup Trophy.
