Anaheim Ducks 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

The last time the Anaheim Ducks made the Stanley Cup Playoffs was in 2018. This is the sixth consecutive season that the Ducks will be on the outside looking in. Despite good ownership and a history of success that includes the 2007 Stanley Cup, the Ducks have not been able to pull out of the bottom of the NHL. Rookie head coach Greg Cronin was brought in to bring a fresh voice and new approach after four seasons of Dallas Eakins. Apparently, the Ducks still lack the talent to make a charge, regardless of coach.

Anaheim Ducks History

Founded as a 1993 expansion franchise by Walt Disney Company, the Ducks were originally known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim before rebranding as the Anaheim Ducks in 2006-07. That season they won their only Stanley Cup. Although the Ducks have a hard-core fan base and great ownership, they have always been LA’s second hockey team after the Los Angeles Kings. Now that they are losing, the Ducks operate anonymously, forgotten in a location flooded with other pro and college sports alternatives, unlimited entertainment options, and perfect weather. Plenty of good seats will be available at the Honda Center in 2022-23.

The berth of the Ducks is a fascinating tale. Then-Los Angeles Kings owner Bruce McNall was riding high, or so it seemed. McNall’s Kings were coming off a Western Conference championship. McNall was the Chairman of the Board of Governors. His team played to sell-out crowds and owned the town with Wayne Gretzky. The Kings made hockey cool in Tinseltown. But McNall had a dark secret. He could not pay his bills and was running a Ponzi scheme. McNall was under investigation for fraud and desperately needed funds.

So he talked Walt Disney Corporation into funding an expansion team in Anaheim and pocketed the fee. McNall lost the Kings and ended up in prison a few years later. And the Ducks were the first team from Southern California to win a Stanley Cup.

After the 2021-22 season, the Ducks all-time leading scorer retired. Ryan Getzlaf was synonymous with the Ducks for 15 years and finished with 1157 games, 282 goals, and 737 assists. He was on the 2007 Stanley Cup team. Other famous former Ducks include Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya, and Scott Niedermayer.
