Twenty-one seasons, 684 goals, and a Stanley Cup later, Teemu Selanne skated in his final National Hockey League game for the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

The Ducks lost to the Los Angeles Kings, 6-2, but Selanne's teammates, fans, and even his opponents cheered him on for more than a minute after the game ended. At 43, Selanne is a future Hall-of-Famer who finished his final season with nine goals and 18 assists in 64 games, reports SBNation.

Watch the video, below, and try not to feel a little something as Selanne lets out a couple deep breaths, nods toward the crowd, and finally raises his hockey stick and gives a wave as he leaves two decades of memories on the ice. --Sarah Eberspacher
