Playing 1,124 games in the NHL is one amazing achievement in itself, whoever you may be. Recording 832 points along the way helps building a valid case to be considered for any Hall of Fame there is. However, being the team captain in your country's first gold medal conquest in any international competition deserves to be recognized.
This is exactly what happened today as Saku Koivu was added to the already impressive IIHF Hall of Fame. He was joined by legendary Ducks Teemu Selanne, who was himself an international star for so long. He played an amazing 21 seasons in the NHL, earning a cup in 2007 along the way.
The two Finnish played for the Ducks during different periods and were mixed up for a while at the end of both careers. However, the joined forces multiple times on the international level, competing during Olympics, World Cups and World Championship.
Congratulation to both of you guys!
