Monday afternoon, Teemu Selanne announced he is returning for 18th NHL season. The right-winger has signed a one-year contract worth $3.25 million with the Anaheim Ducks.

After an injury-plagued 2009-10 campaign in which he suffered a fractured hand and broken jaw, Selanne contemplated retirement. But the 40-year-old is holding those plans off for at least another season.

Selanne is the all-time leader in goals, assists and points with the Ducks. He also holds several other records with the club. During his career, he has played in 1,186 games and recorded 1,260 points (606 goals, 654 assists).

Selanne broke into the League in the 1992-93 season with the Winnipeg Jets. Since that time, he has also played with the San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche. But he spent the majority of his career as a Duck.

In his career, he has won one Stanley Cup in 2007 with the Ducks along with one silver and two bronze medals in five Olympic tournaments.
