(VANCOUVER, British Columbia) — Ducks forward Teemu Selanne scored a pair of goals and had two assists as the Anaheim Ducks (1-0) took down the Vancouver Canucks (0-1) in the season-opener, 7-3 Saturday night.
The 42-year-old Selanne scored his first goal on a power play, 19:46 into the second period to give the Ducks a 6-2 lead. He then scored his second goal on a wrist shot, 9:49 into the third, giving Anaheim a four goal cushion.
With his performance Saturday night, Selanne becomes the first NHL player to have four points in a game at age 42 since Gordie Howe did it against the Buffalo Sabres in February 1971.
