"We are happy to bring back a character player like Saku," Ducks general manager Bob Murray said. "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."

Koivu, 38, had 27 points in 47 games in 2012-13, his 17th in the NHL.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
