Ducks Won't Offer Koivu New Deal

News: Saku Koivu will not be offered a new contract by the Ducks, the Orange County Register's Eric Stephens reports.
Analysis: Saku Koivu signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal last offseason, and it appears the Ducks will not bring back the 39-year-old. He's spent the last five years in Anaheim and appeared in 65 games this season, netting 11 goals to go with 18 assists. It's unclear what Koivu's plans are going forward, but he'll likely look to sign another short-term deal with a contender.

Ducks' Koivu Grabs Goal In Season Finale

News: Saku Koivu scored his 11th goal of the season -- a third-period game-tying tally -- in Sunday's 3-2 OT win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Saku Koivu also led the Ducks and tied a season-high with five shots on goal in 14:04 of ice time in the season finale. After recording 27 points in 47 games last season, the Finnish veteran took a notable step back this year with 29 points in 18 more games - which is to be expected somewhat given that he is in the twilight of his career at age 39. Nevertheless, the 18-year NHLer will be motivated to add to his 58 points in 67-career playoff games, as he begins the quest for his first Stanley Cup with the first-place Ducks.
