Will Selanne be back in the NHL?

Teemu Selanne has yet to decide whether he’ll play another NHL season with the Anaheim Ducks at the age of 43.

But Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa is "99% sure" the Finnish Flash will be back with the team.

"I've asked him about five times," Sbisa told the Orange County Register. "You want to play? You got to play. And he's like, 'I don't know.' We'll see. But I'm 99% sure he's going to play. I think he's got one more year for sure. But it's up to him."
