Via Twitter, an upbeat Teemu Selanne update.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Sami Lepisto went on Twitter today to provide one of the more revealing – if not substantive – Teemu Selanne updates of the summer.

Lepisto, who like Selanne is currently training in his native Finland, teased fans with this post earlier today:

“Trivia of the day! Who came to practice this morning w this?

Followed by this, shortly afterward:

“Yea it’s Teemu’s new one!! And he is looking good on the ice!! 41 yr old shouldn’t be that fast!!”

In short: In the opinion of one fellow NHL player, Selanne is looking “good.” And “fast.” And he has a nice car. For the Ducks, who have been contemplating a Plan B if Selanne’s arthroscopic knee surgery doesn’t allow him to play this season, this can only be good news.
