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.
It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
