Director: JP Siili
Cast:

The Finnish ice hockey legend Teemu Selänne broke the rookie scoring record in his debut season in the NHL in 1993, and went on to have a 20+ year career which reached its peak in 2007 with the Stanley Cup win. You can just about make out these details from this messy documentary which jumps back and forth in time, and leaves anyone apart from hard core fans completely baffled. In fairness, JP Siili’s hagiographic film concentrates more on its hero’s activities outside the rink; his family, his charity work and his general nice guy image. Unfortunately, these parts are less interesting.
