88-89 OPC Tribute; Selanne, Pavelec and Hodgson

#60 - Teemu Selanne

  Teemu Selanne broke into the NHL with a bang.  He destroyed rookie records for goals, 76, and points, 132.  While Selanne has never approached those single season totals again, he did lead the league in goals two more times and won a Stanley Cup in 2007 with the Anahiem Ducks.  Selanne is only 45 points from passing Jari Kurri as the top career point scoring player from Finland.  Selanne is currently 13th in career goals, 642, and 24th in career points, 1354.

#61 - Ondrej Pavelec

  Ondrej Pavelec enters the season as the starting goalie for the Winnipeg Jets and hopes to build on his performance from last season.  In 2010-11, Pavelec may be best remembered for his on-ice collapse during a stoppage in play in October.  He received a concussion from his collapse and missed almost the first month of the season.  He finished the season with a 2.73 GAA and a .914 Save Pct.
#127 - Cody Hodgson

  It sometimes feels as if Cody Hodgson has been around forever.  The 10th overall pick of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, and CHL player of the year in 2009, finally made his debut last season.  He had 2 points in 8 games and also played 12 games during Vancouver's postseason run at the Cup.  This came a year after Hodgson lost almost the the entire 2009 season due to injuries.  In 12 games so far in 2011-12, he has 5 points.  Vancouver fans hopes he is well worth the wait.
