HELSINKI - Finland veteran Teemu Selanne has been selected to play at his sixth Winter Olympics.

The 43-year-old Anaheim Ducks player has twice been the top scorer at the Olympics and was chosen as the best player at the Turin Games in 2006.

Another veteran, Saku Koivu, won't be part of the team after telling Finland coach Erkka Westerlund that he doesn't feel in good enough shape to play at the Olympics.

His younger brother Mikku Koivu, was on the squad presented Tuesday, as was Minnesota Wild team mate Mikael Granlund.

Kari Lehtonon of the Dallas Stars, Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins, and Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks will be Finland's goaltenders in Sochi.

Finland was the bronze medallist at the 2010 Olympics and silver medallist four years earlier.
