ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Forward Brad May decided to stay with the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks.
May, acquired from the Colorado Avalanche in February, signed a two-year, $1.2 million contract with the Ducks on Tuesday.
``There were a lot of reasons I wanted to stay in Anaheim,'' May said. ``I love playing here. I turned down more money from other teams.''
The 35-year-old May had three assists in 10 games with Colorado and four assists in 14 games after being traded to the Ducks on Feb. 27. He missed the first 53 games with a shoulder injury, playing his first game Feb. 8. He had one assist in 18 playoff games for Anaheim.
May has 123 goals and 153 assists in 882 career games, and four goals and nine assists in 82 career playoff games. He played with Buffalo from 1991-98, and later played for Vancouver and Phoenix before signing with Colorado as a free agent in August 2005.
