Saku Koivu skated in his 16th NHL season (third with the Ducks) during the 2011-12 season. The center continued to be a fixture on the second forward line, alongside fellow Finn and friend Teemu Selanne.
The veteran totaled 11 goals, 27 assists and 38 points in 74 games during last year’s campaign. For the second straight season, Koivu led Anaheim in faceoff percentage (52.4 percent, ranking 31st overall among league leaders). He also led the team in faceoff wins (646) and was second in faceoff attempts (1,233).
