Veteran superstar and future Hall of Fame forward Teemu Selanne is returning to the Anaheim Ducks for his final season in the NHL.

Selanne, 43, signed a one-year contract with the Ducks, who made the announcement with a video posting on their website.

"It's great to have Teemu back. He clearly still has passion for the game and can't wait to get started," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "We are so pleased that Teemu will end his career where he belongs."

Selanne enters his 15th season with Anaheim (1996-01; 2005-present) having amassed 448 goals and 513 assists for 961 points in 902 games in a Ducks uniform.

He currently ranks 11th in all-time NHL goals (675), tied for 40th in all-time assists (755), 15th in all-time points (1,430), third in all-time power-play goals (251) and sixth in career game-winning goals (107).

Selanne became the all-time Finnish leader in NHL appearances (1,373) on Mar. 25, 2013 vs. San Jose, surpassing fellow countryman Teppo Numminen (1,372).

He scored the first of two, four-point efforts in 2012-13 on Jan. 19, 2013 at Vancouver (the other occurred in the Ducks' season opener), becoming just the third player in NHL history age 42-or-older to score four points in a game, joining Gordie Howe and Tim Horton.
