The Anaheim Ducks re-signed former Norris Trophy winner, and team captain, Scott Niedermayer today ending speculation as to the defenseman's intentions for the upcoming season.

The Ducks got his services for one more year at $6 million. This is a small discount for his services from this past year's $6.75 million salary.

The greybeard captain assured team officials of his intent to return over the weekend, prompting the trade of fellow defenseman Chris Pronger to Philadelphia (more on that here).

It also hastened the return of Teemu Selanne, a long time Anaheim winger and franchise leading scorer.

Selanne cited Neidermayer's return as emphasis on the team's desire to win now, as opposed to rebuilding the team, and both players are excited at their prospects.

Looks like GM Bob Murray knows what he's doing after all, eh folks?

Now we just have to finalize the deal for Wiz, get Frenchie and Marchant back and rock this.

I can't wait for September!
