On this date (via AP).

Seventeen years ago, March 27, 1993, then-Winnipeg Jet Teemu Selanne scored his 69th and 70th goals of the season in a 3-3 tie
with the Kings. Selanne became the eighth player, and first rookie,
to have a 70-goal NHL season. No other player has scored 70 goals in a season since.

On a related note, check out this comparison of Selanne and fellow Finn Jari Kurri – who will be in Anaheim for the Ducks’ game against Dallas on Monday – in the Edmonton Journal.
