ANAHEIM, Calif. - Forward Teemu Selanne is returning to Anaheim.
The Ducks re-signed the 10-time all-star to a two-year deal Sunday.
"This is the only place I wanted to play," Selanne said in a release. "We have great owners, great fans and a chance to win again. This team is hungry and ready to go."
The deal wasn't possible until the Ducks traded Mathieu Schneider to Atlanta on Friday, which created room under the salary cap.
"We're happy to have Teemu back and thank him for his patience as we sorted out our salary cap situation," Ducks executive vice-president/general manager Brian Burke said in a release. "Teemu is a true Duck. His loyalty to this franchise and community is unquestioned."
Selanne is Anaheim's all-time leader in goals (325), points (689), plus/minus (plus-117), power-play goals (117), power-play points (278), game-winning goals (54) and overtime goals (5).
He had 12 goals and 23 points in 26 games last season after signing with the club in February.
The 38-year-old was part of Anaheim's Stanley Cup-winning team in 2007.
