Ducks actively trying to re-sign Ryan

Contract talks between the Anaheim Ducks and forward Bobby Ryan have picked up a notch, according to the Orange County Register.

The two sides held negotiations yesterday and plan on meeting again after Labor Day weekend.

"We had a discussion (Friday) and we've agreed to do some reflection over the weekend on what we've talked about and get back to each other," Ryan's agent Don Meehan told the Register. "We've agreed to meet again next week."

It's believed Ryan is looking for a three-year contract, while the Ducks originally wanted something longer, having already offered him a five-year, $25 million contract.

The Register reports the Ducks might be willing to give Ryan a three-year deal, but not at $5 million per season.

Meanwhile, veteran forward Teemu Selanne told Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat this season would be "my last season on the ice."

Selanne, 40, signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract with the Ducks last month.
