If you were holding out hope that Captain Koivu would find his way back to Montreal, the wait is over. Koivu announced today that he had signed a one year contract with the Anaheim Ducks for a reported $3.25 million. While many in the know were predicting a landing in Minnesota with brother Mikko, the draw of close friend and former Finnish Olympic teammate Teemu Selanne must have been a strong one.
I personally wish Saku all the luck in the world, I look forward to keeping an eye on his season with the Ducks. Thanks for the memories and onward to new things!
