Teemu Selanne Close To Return To Ducks, For One More Year

Teemu Selanne told Finnish news outlet Urheilu Lehti Friday that he plans to play one more season, and that a return to the Anaheim Ducks will be finalized in a few days. The report was translated by TSN:

“I made the decision to continue my career,” he told the magazine. “In fact, it has been clear for a long time. Negotiations are now ready to begin.”

In addition, Selanne is looking forward to a reunion with longtime Ducks teammate Paul Kariya.

Selanne also told the Journal that he’s made a pitch to the Ducks and former teammate Paul Kariya for a reunion in Anaheim.

“I’ve talked to Paul and the Ducks,” said Selanne. “Paul has been waiting for my decision and I hope things move forward,” he said.

Selanne and Kariya were teammates for five and a half seasons in Anaheim, and last played together for the Colorado Avalanche in the 2003-2004 campaign. The duo are first and second in Ducks franchise history in goals, assists, and points.
