Teemu Selanne, who said last week that he planned to return to Anaheim for one more season, made it official today, signing a one-year deal with the Ducks, the team announced today.
In a statement released via Twitter, Selanne sounded excited:
Ducks Fans – After thinking about it for the last few months, I’ve decided to return to play for the Ducks. I’m excited about the summer additions the team has made. I know this team can win.
The longer I thought about it, the more I got the feeling that I’m not done yet. Last week or so I got stronger feelings I wanted to play more. I really like what Bob Murray has done in the summertime.
ESPN reported the deal was worth $3.25 million, plus incentives.
