ANAHEIM, United States – Scott Niedermayer made his comeback with the title-hoder Anaheim Ducks. Now, another 2007 Stanley Cup hero has announced his intention to help the Ducks: Teemu Selanne. The Finn scored 53 goals and 56 assists in 103 games last season but did not sign any contract after the season.

On Monday at a press conference, the 37-year-old announced the signing of a contract for the remainder of the season. "I feel the passion again to play hockey,” Selanne has said. The winger is one of the most popular players of the Anaheim Ducks. He played for there from 1996-2001 and then again during the last two seasons.

The “Finnish Flash”, as Selanne is nicknamed, celebrated his first Stanley Cup with Anaheim last year. Before, he had won silver (2006) and bronze (1998) at the Olympics.
