Christian Petersen/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) — He’s not done yet. 42-year-old winger Teemu Selanne agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Anaheim Ducks, Thursday.

Selanne is entering his 20th NHL season. He had 66 points last season; the second most ever for a 41-year-old.

“While I’m still amazed by his speed and skill level, it’s Teemu’s love for the game and his teammates that make him so special,” said Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “Anaheim is where he belongs.”

Selanne has played parts of 13 seasons in Anaheim. Known as the Finnish Flash, Selanne is the 19th-leading scorer in NHL history with 1,406 points. He has scored at least 25 goals in six of the last seven seasons.
