The Anaheim Ducks on Friday signed center Saku Koivu to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not released.
"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.
I'll be happy, believe me, if we win our last playoff game. Not taking anything away, but we've had a fairly good lead for a while now. It would be more surprising if we didn't get the division. Business as usual.
