It's no secret that the career of respected forward Teemu Selanne is coming to a close. The 43-year-old has been an institution to the game since making his debut in 1992 and will likely have the highlights of his career immortalized in Toronto sometime in the near future.

How near that future is depends solely upon when Selanne decides to untie his skates for the final time. Currently an unrestricted free agent Selanne is believed to be contemplating whether he will return to the NHL for another season. Selanne has played the last three seasons under one-year contracts which is indicative of how fluid the continuation of his career is.
