'The Finnish Flash'- Hockey Legend confirms horrible tattoo secret!

Teemu Selänne aka "The Finnish Flash" has confirmed rumours that despite being one his country's most faithful servants on the ice, he has been bearing a terrible tattooed secret since a drunken stag night over a decade ago.


Namely, he has a tattoo of a Swedish flag just above his ankle.

Selänne, along with Saku Koivu and Jere Lehtinen, has been a backbone of Team Finland for most of his 120 match international career.

He is the all-time points leader in men's Olympic hockey with 37 points in 31 games and has scored more than 600 career goals. Selänne's prowess on the ice has elevated him to icon status in the hockey crazy Nordic country.

The story began with a familiar tale of stag night high jinx, with Selänne blind-folded by his friends and dragged into a local tattoo studio.

The plan was to tattoo a Finnish flag but the tattoo artist became nervous in the presence of this ice skating deity and mixed up the colours of Finland's bitter rivals across the Baltic sea.

"I was supposed to go back two weeks later to have it fixed," Selänne told the Register. "But I never did. Some day I'll go back and that guy will remember me."
