It's official: legendary Anaheim Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne will return for the 2013-14 NHL season.
The 43-year-old Selanne resorted to Twitter to make the announcement, per the NHL's official website. The video features him playing golf and then throwing his golf bag into the water. He then hits the water in an attempt to get it along with his cell phone.
"I think it's good for people to know it will be the last one. I haven't said that officially before, and it will be easier for me to take advantage of every day and enjoy. I think it's good for everybody, my family, too. They've asked questions over the years, and now it's a very clear situation."
Murray couldn't be more pleased with the development.
"It's great to have Teemu back. He clearly still has a passion for the game and can't wait to get started. We are so pleased that Teemu will end his career where he belongs."
Selanne's 24 points in 2012-13 adds to his career total of 1,430, placing him 14th all-time, per USA Today Sports' Mike Brehm. In Brehm's report, the Ducks right wing also said the Olympics are "absolutely my goal."
