- View SourceTSN.ca Staff
The San Jose Sharks may be swimming in deeper trade waters with
forward Teemu Selanne in the mix.
TSN's sister network in Quebec RDS reports that the 10-year NHL
veteran told Finnish news agency STT that if the Sharks do not
improve soon, he will ask to be traded.
Selanne re-signed with the Sharks last summer. The unrestricted free
agent could have signed a longer deal for more money with another NHL
team, but elected to stay in San Jose by agreeing to a one-year
contract worth $6.5 million US, with a player option for a second
year at $6.5 million US.
The Finnish right-winger made $9.5 million US last season, although
the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Selanne's former team, were paying part of
Selanne, 32, leads the Sharks this in scoring this season with 22
goals and 27 assists.
