As the Anaheim Ducks begin to prepare for the upcoming season, the future of Teemu Selanne will remain up in the air until September.

According to Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, Selanne will make his decision to play this season no sooner than next month as he continues to recuperate from knee problems that he experienced last season.

The 41-year-old sniper is an unrestricted free agent but has indicated the Ducks would be the only team he would play for if he came back.

Selanne underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee in June and wants to make sure the injury is completely healed before making any decision on his playing future.

A return would mean that Selanne could play both in his hometown of Helsinki, where the Ducks open the regular season, and in Winnipeg, the city he started his career in, scoring 76 goals as a rookie in 1992-93.
