from Jeff Miller of the OC Register, Teemu Selanne will not retire.
Instead, the greatest Duck ever will come back to play for the team during the 2012-13 season.
That’s my gut feeling after spending 20 minutes with Selanne following practice Saturday.
Yeah, it was only 20 minutes of a career that would be entering its 20th NHL season. And, sure, it’s not my gut that will decide Selanne’s fate beyond the next seven games.
But, before our conversation, I was certain — fairly certain — this would be his final season. Put it this way: I would have been willing to bet your paycheck on it.
Though he committed to nothing Saturday, in doing so — or not doing so, technically — he convinced me he will return.

ANAHEIM, Calif. The Anaheim Ducks have reassigned right wing Kyle Palmieri to the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheims primary development affiliate in the AHL.
Palmieri, 21 (2191), appeared in 18 contests with the Ducks this season, scoring 4-3=7 points with six penalty minutes (PIM) and a 3 rating. He scored a career-high two goals on Mar. 14 vs. Detroit, becoming the first Ducks rookie...
Seven games remain in the season for the Ducks and it is safe to say that they won't replicate the importance or the atmosphere of the four Stanley Cup playoff contests that Nick Bonino took part in last season.
The season figures to end for the young center once the final horn sounds in Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome on April 7. But it would be foolish to say that the...
I've been going full bore in my attempt to snatch up all of the Ryan Getzlaf Dominion cards I can get my grubby hands on. It was something I mentioned in a previous White Whale themed post, and 2012 has definitely been a boon in terms of adding not only to my Captain Getzlaf PC, but to the Dominion portion of it.My latest addition (that I've posted....hint hint) is this sweeeet...
An NHL coach has to pick and choose his battles. Even more so when it comes to criticizing the officiating during a game. But a bad call caused Anaheim Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau to reach his boiling point and he just couldn't contain his anger any longer.
The Ducks fiery bench boss flipped his lid when forward Matt Beleskeyâs apparent tying goal midway through the...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Marty Turco won for the first time in the NHL in more than 13 months with the help of a disallowed goal that would have tied it, and the Boston Bruins got second-period goals from Zdeno Chara and Benoit Pouliot less than 1 12 minutes apart to beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Sunday night.
Anaheim's Matt Beleskey beat Turco to the stick side with a wrist...
It's time for another edition of "30 Teams, 30 Comments". Hope you enjoy. Leave comments. Follow me on Twitter (@rdcloutier). Get annoyed at the random things I say. Delete me from Twitter.
Anaheim Ducks - The Ducks are out of the playoff mix, and the next few seasons for the team seem a little questionable to me. So is this summer the time to move Perry and Getzlaf...
Welcome to the Hotstove! As always, I'm your host, Travis Yost.
I'm joined by fellow writer Ty Anderson of the Boston Bruins tonight, who will assist in delivering the most impromptu edition of the HockeyBuzz Hotstove in it's storied - ahem - history.
Why the entry late on a Sunday night? Thank the Boston Bruins and Anaheim Ducks, who delivered one of the more controversial...
The Anaheim Ducks will be aiming for their fourth consecutive win over the Boston Bruins when they host the defending Stanley Cup Champions Sunday at Honda Center.
The Bruins had been in a bit of a funk but have played better hockey of late. As a result they are in danger of losing the Northeast Division lead and the second seed in the Eastern Conference standings. The Ottawa...
