The Jets welcomed Selanne back to town on Saturday night. The 41-year-old returned to the city where his decorated career began for the first time in nearly 16 years. Selanne broke into the NHL in 1992-93 with the Jets and spent three-plus seasons there. He had two assists against his former club.

Kyle Wellwood had a goal and an assist for the Jets, who have won nine of their last 11 at home. Blake Wheeler, Alexander Burmistrov and Andrew Ladd also lit the lamp.

Chris Mason made 33 saves for the victors.

Corey Perry had two goals for the Ducks, who haven't won on the road since October 27, going 0-8-3 in 11 games since. Niklas Hagman also scored.

Dan Ellis turned aside 26-of-31 shots.
