ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Teemu Selanne says he's returning to the Anaheim Ducks for his 21st and final NHL season.
The 43-year-old Finnish forward announced his decision Friday in a humorous video posted on YouTube by the Ducks.
Selanne is the 15th-leading scorer in NHL history with 1,430 points, and his 675 career goals are 11th-most in league history. He had 12 goals and 12 assists in 46 games last season.
The Finnish Flash has spent parts of 14 seasons with the Ducks, who won the Pacific Division title last season before losing in the first round of the playoffs.
Selanne's role with the Ducks diminished slightly last year, and he spent most of the summer contemplating whether to return. Anaheim opens training camp in two weeks.
