Part of growing up is making mistakes and learning from them.
Just ask Eemil Selanne, son of Ducks forward Teemu Selanne. He is learning a very important lesson today: whatever you say on the internet is here forever. Not only is it here forever, it travels very quickly around the world. And when your father is a future Hall of Famer already in the midst of a big news-cycle of his own, it spreads even faster. (That’s what she said.)
The younger Selanne, 18, tweeted his displeasure over his father’s healthy-scratch for tonight’s playoff game against the Dallas Stars by way of a roster move I don’t think is allowed under the current CBA.
ROSTER MOVE: Bruce Boudreau has been reassigned to Norfolk Admirals (AHL).

It’s not difficult to empathize with the teen’s anger. To us, he’s Teemu Selanne, hockey legend; to Eemil, he’s dad.
