ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Teemu Selanne is ready for his last skate. Selanne is returning to the Anaheim Ducks for his 21st and final NHL season, the 43-year-old Finnish forward announced Friday. After spending most of the summer contemplating his future, he released a humorous video on YouTube confirming hell be back for one more run at another Stanley Cup title. He also hopes to play for Finland in his record sixth Olympics in Sochi in February. Selanne agreed to a one-year deal worth $2 million -- and for the first time in his now-annual flirtations with retirement, the Finnish Flash insists he wont be back. "Now itll be easier to take advantage of every day," Selanne said. "I think its good for everybody. My family, too. Theyve been asking some questions over the years, and now everybody knows." Two weeks before the Ducks open training camp, Selanne confirmed hes still hungry for another season as the NHLs oldest active player. The right wing has flirted with retirement every year since Anaheim won the Stanley Cup in 2007, always electing to return to the Ducks. He is the 15th-leading scorer in NHL history with 1,430 points, and his 675 career goals are 11th-most in league history. Selanne has spent parts of 14 seasons with Anaheim in an NHL career than began in Winnipeg in 1992. "He clearly still has passion for the game and cant wait to get started," Anaheim general manager Bob Murray said. "We are so pleased that Teemu will end his career where he belongs." And four years after Selanne insisted he was done with international hockey at the Vancouver Games, he confirmed he would play in Sochi if selected to the Finnish team. He is the top scorer in Olympic hockey history with 37 points in 31 games dating back to the Albertville Games in 1992. "Thats a big bonus for the next season," Selanne said. "Obviously, this could be my sixth Olympics, so its something Im very proud of. Thats absolutely my goal, for sure." Hockey fans will have one more season to enjoy the speedy forwards sublime goal-scoring skill and effervescent personality -- something he showed off in a video presentation he wrote himself. Selannes announcement video shows him struggling at golf, eventually throwing his bag into a lake in frustration. When he realizes his phone is in the bag, he jumps into the lake to retrieve it before calling Murray. "Im coming back," Selanne says. "Yeah, but this is it. This is my final one." The video was filmed on the course in Coto de Caza, the gated community in Orange County where Selannes family lives year-round. His acting skills aside, Selanne already has created an indelible mark on his sport ever since he burst onto the NHL scene with the Winnipeg Jets as a 22-year-old phenom, scoring a rookie-record 76 goals and leading the NHL in scoring. He has led the NHL in goals three times -- including 1999, when he won the inaugural Richard Trophy -- while scoring at least 20 goals in 17 seasons. He also played for San Jose and Colorado between two stints in Anaheim, where he is a beloved fan favourite and the franchises career scoring leader with 961 points in 902 games. With 675 goals, Selanne is six behind 41-year-old New Jersey forward Jaromir Jagr for 10th place in NHL history, and is third on the NHLs career power-play goals list with 251. With strong seasons, both veterans could catch Mark Messier (694), Steve Yzerman (692) or Mario Lemieux (690) on the career goals list. Selanne realizes the grind in front of him with a packed NHL schedule around the Olympic break. He expects to preserve his health by taking a few games off during the season, as he did a few times last year during the lockout-shortened slate. "I didnt really want to sit out for a game (last season), but I realized afterward its going to be pretty good for me," Selanne said. "Well sit down where the schedule is really hectic, and maybe I can take some nights off. Last year it was almost impossible to get the recovery you needed." Selanne met with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau before making his decision, coming away confident hell be a key contributor in Anaheim. Selannes role diminished slightly last year with the Ducks, who won the Pacific Division title before losing in the first round of the playoffs. He had 12 goals and 12 assists in 46 games, but still displayed his usual speed and goal-scoring acumen despite decreases in ice time and production late in the season. After their meeting, Selanne is confident Boudreau has an important role for him this fall. "I never want to get any promises, because I know a coach cant really do that," Selanne said. "We have a great group of young guys coming. Its a good competition here right now, and everyone has to earn the ice time and the power play. I know I can do it. I just need to be on the same page with the coach, and thats what happened. Im very happy about it." Selanne took a pay cut from last seasons $4.5 million salary for his final return to the Ducks, who committed $135 million to cornerstone forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in eight-year contract extensions last season. Anaheim then traded goal-scoring forward Bobby Ryan to Ottawa, but retained the core of an exciting, up-tempo team that finally played up to its potential in the regular season. The Ducks post-season loss to Detroit, dropping Game 7 on home ice, only hardened Selannes desire to return for one last shot. "I felt, like everyone in our locker room, we have a better team than this," Selanne said. "We have unfinished business. We know we can do better, and thats the main reason Im still here. We have a good team and a lot of things going on. If we had a bad team and a bad season, it would be easy to say, Thanks for everything, and go on, but I feel I can do better, we can do better."

The good things for Gonzalezs Braves on Monday night were a barrage of Mets errors which handed Atlanta the win. Three errors by New York fueled Atlantas comeback as the Braves scored four runs in the eighth and beat the Mets 5-3 for their fifth straight win. "We were never giving up, never giving any at-bats away," Gonzalez said. "Its the perfect example of putting the ball in play." The error-prone Mets wouldnt let the Braves give up. Errors by reliever Jeurys Familia (1-3), centre fielder Juan Lagares and third baseman Eric Campbell in the eighth helped the Braves rally from a 3-1 deficit. "Weve got to catch the baseball better," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "We didnt catch the baseball tonight." Anthony Varvaro (3-1) pitched one scoreless inning to earn the victory. Craig Kimbrel recorded the final three outs for his 25th save. The Braves announced late in the game that catcher Evan Gattis will be placed on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI revealed a bulging thoracic disk in his back. Curtis Granderson had two hits, including a homer, for the Mets. Trailing 3-1, the Braves loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth against Familia. Following singles by Justin Upton and Jason Heyward, Chris Johnson hit a soft grounder to Familia, who threw low to shortstop Ruben Tejada at second base for an error on what could have been a double play. "I tried to be too quick throwing to the base," Familia said. "It was my fault. Its tough because you work for something and you have a chance to make the double play and you dont make it." Tommy La Stellas single up the middle drove in Upton, and Heyward scored the tying run when Lagares bobbled the ball in centre for another error. With one out, pinch-hitter Ryan Doumits walk loaded the bases again. Campbell, the Mets fill-in third baseman while David Wright sits with a bruised left rotator cuff, bobbled Andrelton Simmons grounder for the third error of the inning, allowing Johnson to score the go-ahead run. Dana Eveland replaced Familia and walked Freddie Freeman, pushing Atlantas lead to two runs. Gattis,, hitting .dddddddddddd.290 with 16 homers and 39 RBIs, missed his fourth straight game on Monday night with what had been called back spasms. He said he was told 95 per cent of similar bulging disks "kind of resolve themselves" without surgery. He said hell have an epidural as early as Tuesday. Rookie Christian Bethancourt, who made his first home start, and veteran Gerald Laird will be Atlantas primary catchers for at least two weeks. New Yorks Zack Wheeler was in position for the win before the Mets eighth-inning collapse. He gave up one run on four hits and five walks in 6 1-3 innings. The Braves were held without a hit until Heyward led off the fourth with a double. The Braves scored one run in the fifth. B.J. Upton, who hit a leadoff single and moved to third on Simmons single, scored on Freemans fly ball to left field. Atlantas Alex Wood allowed three runs on six hits in six innings. He gave up runs in each of the first three innings and then recorded 11 straight outs. Granderson opened the game with his 11th homer. It was his 26th career leadoff homer. Travis dArnauds double drove in Chris Young, who reached on a single, in the second. Youngs flyball drove in Daniel Murphy from third base in the third. Collins successfully challenged a ruling that B.J. Upton stole second base in the third inning. The safe call was overturned following the review, which lasted 1 minute, 15 seconds. Uptons slide easily beat the throw, but the replay showed he was tagged when he bounced off the bag at the end of his pop-up slide. Running from right field, Heyward made a sliding catch in foul territory on Tejadas fly ball to open the fifth.
