Here are the voting results. Note: A player received eight points for a first-place vote, seven for a second and so forth, to one point for an eighth-place ranking (number of first-place votes in parentheses).

1. Teemu Selanne (10 first-place votes) -- 80 points

Selanne appeared to be on the decline nearly a decade ago because of a slip in production then a major knee injury, but the Anaheim Ducks forward has crafted one of the greatest back-nines to a career in NHL history. He scored more than 25 goals in six of the past seven seasons before 2012-13, and that included an 80-point season after his 40th birthday in 2010-11.

The Finnish Flash took the NHL by storm with 76 goals as a rookie, and will be remembered as one of the greatest players in League history. His numbers are staggering -- 674 goals (11th all-time) and 1,429 points (15th) despite playing the majority of his career in the NHL's lowest-scoring era and missing a full season and parts of two others because of work stoppages.
