The NHL lockout could mark the end of Teemu Selanne’s career.

Teemu Selanne

He hasn’t made a decision yet about playing at 42 years old, or retiring. Right now, he has not made any decision, as the NHL and NHL PA bicker over money.

In the meantime, he has been attending practices with several Anaheim Ducks.

“A lot of times when I drive to the rink here and I know there’s only four of five guys skating, I’m thinking, ‘Right now, I’d like to call and say I’m done,’” Selanne said. “This is enough right now. I’m old enough to do something else and not play with the kids. Next time, I feel like I want to wait and see what happens. I have played so many games, so many years. This is not a big thing for me. If I have to retire like this, I’m still going to be a happy camper. But this is a sad way to go out, this way.”
