Teemu Selanne has agreed to a one-year contract with the Anaheim ducks, bringing him out of retirement after the first 53 games of the season — I told you I’d keep you posted.
And after leading the team in goals (48) and assits (46) in 2006, Selanne will embark on an 8-game road trip that begins Wednesday against Minnesota. The trip will span 14 days and is undoubtedly a great chance for the 10-time All-Star to bond with his teammates — some familiar, some not — even if he’s not expected to start on Wednesday.
With the Finnish Flash back in the lineup, the Ducks hope to take advantage of their new look by making yet another postseason push.
At 27-20-6, Anaheim sits at 5th in the Western Conference and 3rd in the Pacific Division.
And although catching the first place Detroit Red Wings is highly unlikely — though, by some other-wordly occurrence it could happen — the Ducks are nearly a lock for the postseason anyway.
