NHL NOTES: St. Louis star Keith Tkachuk leaning towards retirement

compiled from staff, wire and game reports

Whenever NHL media members talk about the St. Louis Blues, the first name that comes to find is Keith Tkachuk. He is the heart and soul of the franchise.

Eventhough he hasn’t  made a decision, but it appears that the 18-year National Hockey League veteran is leaning toward retirement following the current season.

Tkachuk will turn 38 on March 28, and the 2009-10 season has been tough on him. He lost several teeth when he was hit in the mouth by a puck on January 2 and recently suffered a displaced finger on his left hand.

Teemu Selanne, newest member of the 600 goals club

compiled from staff and wire reports

Anaheim Ducks star Teemu Selanne, Sunday night became the 18th player in National Hockey League history to score 600 goals, reaching the milestone Sunday night in the Ducks 5-2 victory over Colorado.

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.”

Selanne also made history as far as assists go. He assisted on a power-play goal by Ryan Getzlaf, the 648th assist of Teemu’s career and the second-lowest total among players who have scored 600 goals. Bobby Hull had 560 assists, but son Brett finished his career with 650.

Selanne also played on the winning team when scored his 100th, 200th, 300th and 400th NHL goals. But Anaheim lost at Colorado, 3-2 in a shootout when he scored his 500th goal on November 22, 2006.

Selanne came on the NHL scene with the Winnipeg Jets, now the Phoenix Coyotes, after being selected with the 10th overall pick in the 1988 draft. Teemu finished his rookie year with 76 goals, tying Alexander Mogilny for the league Lead.

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. The 10-time All-Star was the recipient of the first two Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophies as the NHL’s top goal scorer in 1997-98 (52) and 1998-99 (47) and won his first Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007.

Mario Lemieux, Luc Robitaille and Teemu Selanne are the only NHL players to score 600 goals after winning the Calder Cup as rookie of the year. Luc Robitaille also reached the 600 goal milestone at Anaheim while playing for Detroit on November 9, 2001.
