Brian Burke made it official half an hour ago: Scott Niedermayer is ready to return to the Ducks. He will skate at Anaheim Ice tomorrow, will skate with his teammates when they get back from the upcoming road trip in a week, and could be ready to play against the Canucks on Dec. 12. At least one roster move will have to be made, but even Burke wasn’t sure how much money he needs to clear up. So that will wait. In the meantime, be happy for Scotty and pray for Teemu Selanne – he and his wife just had a baby girl.
