ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -The Anaheim Ducks signed right wing Teemu Selanne to a two-year contract Sunday, having sorted out their salary cap issues by trading Mathieu Schneider to Atlanta.
Friday's deal created room under the salary cap to keep Selanne.
The 10-time NHL All-Star is the club's career leader in seven categories, including goals (325), points (689), and game-winning goals (54).
``This is the only place I wanted to play,'' Selanne said in a statement. ``We have great owners, great fans and a chance to win again. This team is hungry and ready to go.''
He contemplated retirement after the Ducks won the 2007 Stanley Cup, but he signed with the team in February and had 12 goals and 11 assists in 26 games.
``We're happy to have Teemu back and thank him for his patience as we sorted out our salary cap situation,'' general manager Brian Burke said. ``Teemu is a true Duck. His loyalty to this franchise and community is unquestioned.''
Selanne has scored 100 goals over the past three seasons.
