On Friday night, the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings took the ice for Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinals series. For the Kings, it was a great moment as they dominated the Ducks to the tune of a 6-2 win as they advanced to the Western Conference Finals where they will now take on the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. However, there was still a great moment for Anaheim as well.
It was the final game of Teemu Selanne’s incredible career which spanned over 24 seasons.
While it may not have been the end result that he was hoping for, Selanne was honored after the game in a way that he will never forget.
After the two teams made their way through the handshake line, the Kings remained on the ice and joined the Ducks as they gave Selanne a stick salute and showed him the respect that he has earned throughout his career which will undoubtedly land him in the Hall of Fame.
