Selanne stuns everyone
The Anaheim Ducks announced today that right wing Teemu Selanne has signed a one-year contract and will join the team for the remainder of the 2007-2008 season. Selanne, who was an unrestricted free agent, will practice with the team today and travel on the club's eight-game, 15-day road trip (team departs Tuesday).It'll be interesting if he can get back into 40-goal, 90-point form by the playoffs.
I'll post the contract details here once I have them.
UPDATE The deal is a $1.5-million contract, which means Selanne will receive about $600,000 for the rest of the season (with an additional $1-million-plus in regular-season bonuses to potentially be had).
If the Ducks have a prolonged playoff run, he becomes even more of a bargain.
