Leevi Selanne, the son of Finnish hockey legend Teemu Selanne, is seeking a new team after his contract was terminated by Hokki Kajaanin on Friday. The team, which plays in Finland's second-tier league, Mestis, announced the decision on Facebook, making Selanne a free agent in Europe.

Selanne began his professional career with Hokki Kajaanin after playing two years at Curry College in the United States. In 23 games last season, he recorded four points, 24 penalty minutes, and had an even rating. Although he struggled to adapt to the higher level of competition, Selanne is determined to make a name for himself in the hockey world.
Note: the following was translated from Finnish.

"The player agreement between Leevi Selanne and Kajaani Hockey has been terminated in agreement for the 2024-2025 season. The option for the next season, that was in Atte Peltonen's contract, was also not used. We want to thank Leevi and Atte for their time in Kajaani and wish them all the best for the future! 🤝
Our own parents Samppa Kemppainen and Noa Tuomainen will also represent Hockey in the 2024-2025 season according to their agreements."

Living up to his father's legacy won't be easy, as Teemu Selanne is a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest players in NHL history. However, Leevi is eager to forge his own path and prove himself as a capable player. With a fresh start, he'll look to join a new club and continue his journey in professional hockey.
The termination of his contract may be a setback, but it also presents an opportunity for Selanne to explore new options and find a better fit. As he searches for a new team, he'll aim to showcase his skills and make a name for himself in the hockey world, separate from his father's iconic status.
