ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Teemu Selanne is returning for another season with the Anaheim Ducks, agreeing to a one-year contract.

Anaheim announced the deal Thursday for Selanne, the franchise's 41-year-old career scoring leader.

Selanne was the NHL's eighth-leading scorer last season with 80 points, the third-best season by a player in his 40s in league history. The Finnish Flash is the 27th-leading scorer in NHL history, 14th in goals.

Selanne was expected to return after his outstanding season, but spent the summer debating his future after postseason knee surgery. He has been skating daily in Anaheim in recent weeks.

Selanne's decision to return is a huge boost to the Ducks, who open training camp on Saturday.
