The life story of one of today's NHL superstars at the peak of his profession is told through color photographs of the star in action. In a text aimed at eight- to eleven-year-olds, Kerry Banks focuses on Teemu Selanne, the "Finnish Flash." During his first NHL season in 1992, Selanne demolished all previous rookie records for goals and points and earned a reputation among goalies as one of the most feared forwards on the ice. Since then, Selanne's blinding skating speed, quick and accurate shot, and superb playmaking skills have made him indispensable to his team, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Find out where it all started by following Selanne's career from his early days in Finland, up through the ranks of the Finnish hockey system, and into the fast-paced world of the NHL. The author lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. 48 pages (all in color), 6 1/2 x 8.

When Teemu Selanne zips down the ice at full speed, anything can happen, especially a goal. Able to turn on a dime, score at impossible angles and fire pucks with lightning-quick reflexes, Teemu is one of hockey's deadliest snipers. But he also finds time to help those less fortunate. He has thrilled and charmed fans in Finland and North America alike with his brilliant goal scoring and big heart.
In 1992-93, his first year in the National Hockey League, Teemu racked up 76 goals, the most any rookie has ever achieved. Since then his exploits on and off the ice have continued to dazzle spectators around the world. Whether signing autographs or scoring hat tricks, Teemu, like Wayne Gretzky before him, is one of the game's great ambassadors.
