About Anaheim Ducks Hockey
The Anaheim Ducks are celebrating their 20th anniversary season during the current 2013-14 National Hockey League campaign. The club was born in 1992 and played its first-ever game on Oct. 8, 1993 at Honda Center (then Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim). One of 30 NHL franchises located throughout the United States and Canada, the Ducks have played to over 90% capacity crowds in their history at the 17,174-seat Honda Center. On June 20, 2005, the Ducks franchise was purchased by Orange County residents Henry and Susan Samueli. By securing the first Stanley Cup championship in franchise history in 2007, the club also became the first team from California to win hockey’s ultimate prize. The Ducks have been to the Conference Finals three times (2003, 2006 & 2007) and the Stanley Cup Final twice (2003 & 2007). The club completed their best-ever season in 2012-13 (by points percentage), ranking third in the NHL in the regular season while also winning the Pacific Division for the second time in franchise history (also 2007). Anaheim has qualified for the playoffs six times in the last eight seasons.
