Anaheim Ducks Information
Founded as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 1993, the team has since dropped the Mighty from its name. They play in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference.
Since the NHL lockout in 2005, the Ducks made the playoffs for the past four consecutive seasons. In 2007, they made history by winning their first Stanley Cup title after defeating the Ottawa Senators in five games. The following two seasons were also successful for Anaheim. They finished around the top of their division, but were not able to advance past the Conference Semifinals.
In the 2009-10 season, the Ducks failed to make the playoffs. They returned to the postseason in the 2010-11 season, but lost in the first round to Nashville. This past season the Ducks started the regular season with games in Europe. The team had a slow start to the season and replaced head coach Randy Carlyle with former head coach of the Washington Capitals, Bruce Boudreau. In the remainder of the season the Ducks could not get out of the losing slump they were in throughout the first half. They ultimately failed to reach the playoffs.
