TheFourthPeriod.com

The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed unrestricted free agent center Saku Koivu to a one-year contract worth $2.25 million.

Koivu, 38, recently completed in his fourth season with Anaheim in 2012-13, compiling eight goals and 19 assists for 27 points.

"We are happy to bring back a character player like Saku," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "At this stage in his career, his first priority is to win, and we are happy he's decided this is the place for him."

A native of Turku, Finland, Koivu is a veteran of 17 NHL seasons, 13 of which were played with the Montreal Canadiens (served as captain for 10 of the 13). In 1,058 career NHL games with Anaheim and Montreal, he has accumulated 244 goals and 559 assists for 803 points and 763 penalty minutes.

Koivu originally signed with Anaheim on July 8, 2009.

Selected by Montreal in the first round (21st overall) of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Koivu won the Bill Masterton Trophy following the 2001-02 season, presented annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Koivu has also been honored with the 2007 King Clancy Memorial Trophy for his work with the Saku Koivu Foundation, formed in 2002 to help raise funds for cancer-fighting equipment.
