The Anaheim Ducks are quickly becoming a powerhouse in hockey and fans continue to grow and watch the hockey team. Playing in beautiful Anaheim, California, fans can get a taste of winter by going out and spending a night at the Honda Center. There, fans can watch their Ducks fly across the ice and compete with one of the most balanced hockey teams in all of the NHL.
Fans will be there to see all of the blistering goals, heart stopping saves and bone crushing hits. And if fans are lucky, they might even see an old fashioned hockey fight where they can cheer on their guy to knock out the opponent. Seeing the Ducks play in person will be much more exciting and physical than anything a fan could see on a Mighty Ducks film but they certainly could be in store from some of the magic from the movies.
The Ducks are one of the best teams in the NHL at the moment, making them an even better investment than other hockey teams in warm climates. They Ducks are above average in all facets of the game, including skills at even strength, on the power play, and killing off penalties. As a team that made it to the Western Conference Finals last season, fans can rest assured knowing their Ducks have a good chance to beat any team on any given night.
Anaheim Ducks Team Info
The Ducks are led by their two best forwards, Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Perry is always near the top of the league in goals scored and often a consideration for the NHL's version of the MVP award. Getzlaf is more of a balanced player, exceling at every aspect of the game, especially in dishing off passes to his teammates. The Ducks also feature great role players like Ryan Kessler, who contributes in almost all situations. Goalie Frederik Anderson can be a brick wall for the Ducks and helps out the otherwise young defense for the Ducks.
Anaheim Ducks Playoff Experience
The Ducks have not always been a hockey powerhouse but have had great success since joining the NHL in 1993. Since that year, the Ducks have gone to the playoffs 11 total times. In those playoff appearances, the Ducks have only lost in the first round of the playoffs three times. This success shows for the Ducks, who have won the Western Conference twice and Stanley Cup once in their short existence. Recently, the Ducks are on a good playoff stretch, making the playoffs in three straight seasons, and making the Western Conference finals once in that span. This success should also continue with the strong depth and nucleus that the Ducks still possess.
Anaheim Ducks History
The Ducks were added to the NHL as an expansion team in 1993 as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim before becoming the Anaheim Ducks in 2006. The team has seen great success since its inception, touting a winning record for their existence. The team has one Stanley Cup that they won in the 2006-2007 season and has played for the Cup three times in total. The Ducks only have one Hall of Famer that contributed a large amount to the team, defenseman Scott Niedermayer but also have a sure fire Hall of Famer that was with the Ducks for much of their success in two stints, Teemu Selanne. With Perry and Getzlaf quickly building their legacy with the Ducks, they will likely be a long part of the team's history as well.
Anaheim Ducks Fun Fact
Did you know all of the Ducks' regular season franchise records are held by one man?
Teemu Selanne should be called "Mr. Duck" for all of the records that he holds for the franchise. He leads the franchise in goals, assists, points, games played and many more records of note. Selanne's records are also quite safe from most players except for Getzlaf who has a chance to pass him in only a few categories.
Anaheim Ducks Fans
Fans of the Ducks have been climbing over the years. While hockey is certainly not the top sport in California, let alone Los Angeles, the Ducks have been able to pull some solid attendance numbers. Anaheim is ranked 20th in attendance in the NHL with an average of about 17,000 fans at any given game. And with a team that is continuing to succeed year after year, that number can only rise.
