Teemu Selanne named MVP of Olympic hockey tournament
Teemu Selanne is the MVP of the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament. Carey Price, Erik Karlsson and Phil Kessel won positional honors.
In his sixth and final Olympic Games, Teemu Selanne is leaving with more than a bronze medal. The Finnish Flash was named the Olympic tournament MVP as selected by the media.
The other individual awards went to Carey Price (Canada) for the best goaltender, Erik Karlsson (Sweden) for the best defenseman and Phil Kessel (USA) for best forward. Those four players were joined by Drew Doughty (Canada) and Mikael Granlund (Finland) on the all-tournament team.
Perhaps Selanne wasn't the best player in this tournament but he was close to it. The 43-year-old showed he still had some game left in his stick, scoring four goals in the tournament including two against the USA in the bronze-medal game. He became the oldest player in Olympic history to score a goal.
Not to mention, he was the heart and soul for a Finnish team that surprised many by getting on the podium once again, something that has almost become a tradition for Finland. It's partially a life-achievement award for Selanne but it's nowhere near a token nod, Selanne played the best hockey he has played in a few years in Sochi.
