Ducks' Teemu Selanne scores 600th NHL goal

March 21, 2010 |  6:28 pm

The Ducks' Teemu Selanne became the 18th player in NHL history to score 600 goals Sunday night when cashed in from the left side of the net after a flurry of Ducks attempts on a power play 34 seconds into the second period of their  game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Selanne is the third European to reach 600 goals, behind Jaromir Jagr and Jari Kurri.

When Selanne scored, the Ducks' bench emptied to congratulate him on the ice, and the crowd gave a sustained ovation before Selanne took a curtain call from the bench.

Kurri, Selanne's boyhood idol and now a close friend, is next in his sights at 601.
