The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed unrestricted free agent right wing Teemu Selanne to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.
Selanne, 42, registered 26 goals and 40 assists for 66 points, with 50 penalty minutes, in 82 games with the Ducks last season.
"While I'm still amazed by his speed and skill level, it's Teemu's love for the game and his teammates that make him so special," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "Anaheim is where he belongs."
A native of Helsinki, Finland, Selanne has appeared in 1,341 career NHL games, collecting 663 goals and 743 assists for 1,406 points. He concluded the 2011-12 season ranked 12th in all-time goals, fourth in all-time power play goals (248), sixth in all-time game-winning goals (106), 19th in all-time scoring and 42nd in all-time assists.
On Mar. 14, 2012 vs. Detroit, Selanne earned his 1,400th career point to become the third European-born player to reach the milestone, joining Jaromir Jagr and Stan Mikita.
