Anaheim Ducks, American expert ice hockey group situated in Anaheim, California, that plays in the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The Ducks have won one Stanley Cup title (2007).
Established in 1993, the establishment was initially possessed by the Disney Company and was known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim after the then-ongoing Disney motion picture about a kids' ice hockey group, The Mighty Ducks (1992). In the wake of beginning with three back to back losing seasons, the Mighty Ducks were directed to their first play-off billet in 1996–97 by high-scoring advances Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya. Anaheim at that point came back to average quality, with three last-place divisional completes between 1997–98 and 2001–02. In 2002–03 the group made an alarming postseason run when the seventh-seeded (out of eight Western Conference clubs) Mighty Ducks were pushed into the Stanley Cup finals by the awesome goaltending of Jean-Sébastien Giguère. Anaheim in the long run lost that arrangement to the New Jersey Devils, however Giguère won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the postseason's most profitable player.
In 2006 the establishment, which had been sold by Disney the earlier year, embraced as its name the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks at that point won their first division title—in 2006–07, with a group driven by Selanne and highlighting sprouting stars Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. In the accompanying postseason the Ducks lost only five all out recreations and vanquished the Ottawa Senators to catch the Stanley Cup title. Anaheim posted winning records in the four seasons in the wake of catching that title however neglected to progress more distant than the second round of the play-offs in those years. After a last-place complete in 2011–12, the Ducks won the second division title in group history in 2012–13 however were disturbed in their opening postseason arrangement.
In 2013–14 the Ducks set an establishment record with 54 wins to catch a division title and completion with the best record in the Western Conference. In any case, the group was irritated with the adversary Los Angeles Kings in the meeting elimination rounds. Anaheim tied for the best gathering record in 2014–15 and along these lines progressed to the meeting finals, where the Ducks lost a seven-game arrangement to the Chicago Blackhawks. In 2015–16 the group won a fourth successive division title yet lost in the first round of the postseason, which highlighted Anaheim's fourth straight play-off end in a game seven on home ice.
In the wake of catching another division title in 2016–17, the Ducks confronted another home-ice game seven in the second round of the play-offs yet figured out how to break their dishonorable streak with a success over the Edmonton Oilers before eventually being killed in the meeting finals. The Ducks came back to the postseason in 2017–18 however were cleared in the opening round.
