    Anaheim Ducks History

    After being awarded the right to an NHL franchise in 1992, the Walt Disney Company founded the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 1993. The team name was homage to the 1992 movie The Mighty Ducks with Disney President Michael Esner stating that the movie’s success served as ‘market research’ for the team’s eventual branding. 

    Anaheim suffered a 7-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings in the opening game of their inaugural season but only had to wait two more games to register their first win in franchise history with a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers. 

    The Ducks finished their debut season with a 33-46-5 record, failing to qualify for the playoffs. Two more seasons passed before Anaheim had a winning season, qualifying for the 1996-97 playoffs with a 36-33-13 record. 

    The Ducks won their first playoff series 4-3 over the Phoenix Coyotes, progressing out of the Conference Quarterfinals into a Conference Semifinals matchup with the Detroit Red Wings that saw Anaheim get swept in four games. 

    The Ducks were once again swept out of the playoffs by Detroit in the Conference Quarterfinals of 1998-99, before Anaheim flipped the script and swept the Red Wings in the first round of the 2002-03 playoffs. 

    After beating Detroit, the Ducks won eight of their next 10 games, winning the Western Conference Finals with a sweep against the Minnesota Wild and advancing to their first ever Stanley Cup Finals. 

    Only conceding two goals through their first 14 playoff games in the 2003 postseason, Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere was being recognised as one of the best players in the league. 

    Despite losing the Stanley Cup Finals in Game 7 (3-0) against the New Jersey Devils, Giguere was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as Most Valuable Player of the playoffs, becoming just the fifth player, and fourth goaltender, in NHL history to have won the Trophy as a member of the losing team. 

    After a  48-20 season that saw them clinch both the Pacific Division and the Western Conference, Anaheim returned to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007, matched up against the Ottawa Senators. 

    Leading the series 3-1 going back onto their home ice, Anaheim defeated the Senators 6–2 at the Honda Center to claim their first-ever Stanley Cup in franchise history. Ducks legend Scott Niedermayer was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. 

    Following their Stanley Cup victory Anaheim made the playoffs nine of the next 11 seasons, including five consecutive seasons that saw them win the Pacific Division (2012-13 – 2016-17). In that stretch Corey Perry put up a 50-goal, 98-point season in 2010-11, which won him the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy and Hart Memorial Trophy. 

    Perry’s season is arguably the best individual season by a Duck, and he remains the only Anaheim player to ever win the Hart. However, the Ducks have not returned to the Stanley Cup Finals. 

    In their most recent seasons, Anaheim have not qualified for the playoffs finishing 6th in the Pacific Division and 13th in the Western Conference in both 2018-19 and 2019-20. They failed to improve in 2020/21, with a record of 17-30-9 the Ducks finished dead last in the West Division and second last in the league overall.

    The 2021-22 campaign was a miserable one for the Anaheim Ducks. As they finished the year with a record of 31-37-14. They missed out on the Stanley Cup Playoffs and finished in 7th in the Pacific division.

Eakins possess a career record of 83-126-32. Unless improvement is shown this could be his last season coaching in Anaheim and potentially the NHL all together.

    Getzlaf was the 19th overall pick in 2003 and has spent his entire career with the Ducks. He is a right handed Centre who puts up Assists like they are going out of style. Through 16 seasons he has recorded a total of 786 Assists. Adding to his impressive numbers is 306 Goals, several records and a Stanley Cup. During the 2006-07 Stanley Cup campaign, he contributed 17 points in the playoffs.

    After being drafted in 2009, he spent only two seasons in Ottawa before coming across the border to play in Anaheim. He has one all-star selection to his name, being picked in 2020. Silfverberg has a career total of 164 Goals and 188 Assists. Following a down year during the COVID shortened 2020-21 season he will be looking to bounce back in a big way in 2021 and 2022.
