    The 37-year-old Koivu scored 38 points in 74 games for the Ducks last season, his third in Anaheim. Although he had the lowest scoring full season of his NHL career, the former captain of the Montreal Canadiens is a valuable two-way player and faceoff specialist for the Ducks while centering a line with Teemu Selanne, his longtime friend and fellow Finn.

    Koivu would have attracted attention around the league as a veteran free agent, but he emerged from meetings with the Ducks brass with high hopes for the franchise's future after Anaheim missed the playoffs this spring for the second time in his three years.
