Nostalgia will be served nightly in the Pacific Division, where 40-year olds Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney and 42-year old Teemu Selanne will be featured in prominent roles on teams looking to re-enter the Western Conference's playoff fray.
Selanne, the leading scorer in Anaheim Ducks history and a collector of 663 goals and 1,406 career points over 1,341 National Hockey League games, will return to Anaheim on a one-year contract worth 4.5 million dollars, as announced on the Ducks' mobile application Thursday.
"There's some unfinished business from last year, and I can't wait to start the season again," he said.
Ranking 12th all time in goals, fourth in power play goals, fifth in game-winning goals and 19th in points, Selanne will have the opportunity to continue to rise through the league's record books opposite a new division rival in Jagr, who signed a one year, 4.55 million dollar deal with Dallas last week.
