ANAHEIM, Calif. – While the Anaheim Ducks packed up for the summer, Teemu Selanne already was off enjoying his first few days of retirement.
The Ducks will have to get used to life without the Finnish Flash after their second-round playoff ouster by the Los Angeles Kings. Selanne might not be the only veteran departing Anaheim, either.
Goalie Jonas Hiller is nearly certain he'll have to leave as a free agent. Center Saku Koivu hasn't decided whether to return for another season.
And general manager Bob Murray will explore numerous options for improving the two-time Pacific Division champions, who couldn't extend the best regular season in franchise history into the conference final.
Murray made himself the Ducks' first big offseason signing, agreeing to a four-year contract extension through 2020.
