Teemu Selanne may not have a hockey card depicted of himself this year, but a Finnish man had created a large Lego piece of art of the retired NHLer.

Check out this terrific 5-by-8 foot rendition of the Finnish Flash. It’s a sepia tone close-up of Selanne’s face in an Anaheim Ducks jersey after taking a slapshot. The two-dimensional Lego board (see video) was created by 22-year-old artist Timo Ranto and made from 10,000 pieces of Lego over the course of one month.

That's about 15 pieces of Lego for every goal Selanne scored during his NHL career. The 44-year-old retired after 2013-14 with 684 goals and 1,457 points in 1,451 games.
