Selanne jokes he'd only need '2 weeks of training' to be NHL-ready
Few would argue with Teemu Selanne if he actually considered an NHL comeback.
Selanne is back in Winnipeg for the Heritage Classic festivities, which include Saturday's alumni game at Investors Group Field between the former Jets and Edmonton Oilers.
He admitted Friday he was a bit rusty getting back on the ice.
"(I) felt like I never skated before," Selanne said, according to NHL.com's Shawn Roarke.
It showed, apparently.
After practice, Winnipeg mayor Brian Bowman presented Selanne with the key to the city.
Dale Hawerchuk, Thomas Steen, Brian Mullen, Teppo Numminen, Dave Babych, and Ron Wilson are among Selanne's teammates for the alumni game.
Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffey, Jari Kurri, Esa Tikkanen, and Marty McSorley will lead the Oilers' legends.
