5. When the Ducks were Mighty
Not everyone is a fan of the original Mighty Ducks name and jerseys, but for fans who grew up in the 90s, the Mighty Ducks movies were a gateway to our hockey fandom. My dad was more of a football and baseball fan, so if it weren’t for the first Mighty Ducks movie I would not have become a hockey fan at such a young age.
I understand why Anaheim decided to drop the Mighty from their name and take on a more serious brand, but it was awesome to see them wear their throwbacks this year. For one night it was like Christmas morning for every 90’s hockey fan as the Ducks were Mighty once again.
