Teemu Selanne said the only reason he has not retired is because he believes the Ducks have the pieces in place to win a second consecutive Stanley Cup and is trying to decide if he wants to be part of that.
"Every time I come to the games, I get really excited," he said before attending Monday night's home game against Nashville. "But when I go home, it's with mixed feelings."
Selanne, 37, said he is on a program where he'll skate up to five days this week with the intention of making a final decision in "about two weeks."
And if he does return, it will be with the Ducks and no one else.
"I have to know if I'm ready to start pushing it to get back to the level I want to be at," said Selanne, who had 48 goals last season. "There's no way I'm coming back at 90 or 95%. It has to be 100%."
