"I do not see a reason to remain in the League," Giguere said, according to the QMI Agency. "I just want to be sure to do it right, to meet my agent Bob Sauve and talk to the Players' Association."
Giguere was 11-6-1 with a 2.62 goals-against average and .913 save percentage this season as the backup to Semyon Varlamov.
Giguere, 37, was the 13th pick of the 1995 NHL Draft by the Hartford Whalers.
He won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when the Ducks lost the Final to the New Jersey Devils in seven games. He won the championship with the Ducks in 2007, when they defeated the Ottawa Senators in five games.
He was 33-17 with a 2.08 GAA and .925 save percentage in 52 playoff games, all with the Ducks.
