The Anaheim Ducks are the third Californian team in the NHL after the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks. Despite being the youngest of the three, Anaheim has sustained the most consistent success and has the best winning percentage (as of the end of the 2021-22 season) of the three, per Anaheim Ducks’ team stats.
Despite their success, which includes a Stanley Cup and many playoff appearances, the NHL odds continue to undervalue the Ducks. Bettors can find Anaheim as underdogs on the sportsbook even if the Ducks’ team stats are on par with the best teams in the NHL.

Anaheim Ducks Stats & History
Many might remember the Anaheim Ducks as the “Mighty Ducks of Anaheim” after the Disney movie. This is because the Walt Disney Company originally owned the Ducks until the Samuelies, Henry and Susan, purchased the franchise in 2005.
The team would drop the “Mighty” from its name at the start of the 2006-07 season. Ironically, this would be when they won the Stanley Cup in the 2006-07 season.
During the Mighty Ducks era, Anaheim was carried by young stars like Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne. However, the team had a hard time winning games; nevertheless, during the 2002-03 season, the Mighty Ducks would go on a “Cinderella Run”.
As the seventh seed, Anaheim would ride the hot goaltending of Jean-Sebastien Giguere all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Mighty Ducks would upset two Stanley Cup Champions in Detroit and Dallas in the process. They would, however, fall short against the New Jersey Devils. Giguere would win the Conn Smythe Trophy.
This was the start of the Ducks’ rise, as the team would become a perennial playoff contender even with the departure of Kariya. Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger would form one of the best defensive tandems, while veterans Selanne and Giguere continued to play at a high level.
The team’s new young stars, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, also began to emerge during this era. The duo would lead the Ducks for over a decade. Getzlaf has set several franchise records while serving 12 seasons as captain. Anaheim, despite not winning the Stanley Cup again, would be a constant contender and make several deep playoff runs.
Following the Getzlaf-Perry era, Anaheim has returned to rebuilding. The team continues to find great young talent.
