Encinitas, CA – World renown and legendary hockey player Teemu Selanne has teamed up with TLD and Road 2 Recovery to announce exciting news for Hockey and moto fans alike. For two days, starting this Friday, January 6th for every Jessy Nelson TLD KTM 250 bike raffle ticket purchased you will be entered into an additional raffle to win one of three autographed Teemu Selanne Anaheim Ducks hockey pucks. The winners of the hockey pucks will be pulled at 5:30 PM PST on Saturday the 7th at the Monster Energy Supercross Season opener at Anaheim 1.

Teemu broke into the NHL by scoring 76 goals in his rookie season in 1992-93 earning him the still standing record for most goals by a rookie. He was then awarded the Calder Memorial Trophy as the top first-year player in the NHL. From there Teemu has created a very successful career with the Winnipeg Jets and Anaheim Duck earning him the most liked player in the history of both teams. He has scored 50 goals in a season three times and topped 100 points on four separate occasions. Teemu played in 10 NHL All-Star games and won the inaugural Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy in 1998-99 as the league’s leading goal scorer. His Anaheim Duck jersey is the first and only to be hung from the roof at the Honda Center.

Being a Supercross enthusiast and big fan of Jessy's, Teemu felt compelled to help out. He will also be donating his autographed TLD Jersey and helmet that he will wear at opening ceremonies at Monster Energy Supercross Anaheim 1 along with an autographed Anaheim Duck’s Hockey jersey to be auctioned off at a later date. More information on these items and the auction will be announced soon. All proceeds will go to Jessy Nelson’s R2R cause.

To be entered into both drawings you can buy raffle tickets online at or live at Road 2 Recovery’s booth. Teemue and friends will be at R2R’s booth in the Party in the Pits to pull the winner and sign some autographs at 5:30pm. You don’t need to be present to win; R2R will ship the pucks to the winners. Puck raffle entries will close at 5:00 PM PST. For more information on the Jessy Nelson style KTM 250 SX-F Factory Edition bike go to
