The Anaheim Ducks 25th Anniversary Silver Celebration Week continued Wednesday night with The Mighty Ducks Movie Tribute Night at the Honda Center, where the originally Disney-owned Ducks hockey team plays its home games in Anaheim, California.
After Monday’s Ducks Day at Disney California Adventure and Tuesday evening’s anniversary The Mighty Ducks movie screening in Santa Ana, fans arrived at the Honda Center on Wednesday excited to see the trilogy’s cast and producers participate in a special commemorative “puck drop” at center ice, followed by an exciting photo opportunity between periods of the game.

Also available at Honda Center was exclusive The Mighty Ducks and Anaheim Ducks merchandise, plus fan who entered before the game began received a great Wild Wing mascot troll doll from TCL.
The evening’s proceedings were all just one part of an eight-day-long celebration of twenty-five years of the Anaheim Ducks hockey team, which was originally named The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (inspired by the movie) and founded by Disney for the 1993-1994 NHL season.
Anaheim Ducks Silver Celebration Week continued Thursday with A Day of Service with the Anaheim Ducks, during which team alumni joined forces “in a volunteer effort to benefit the local community. Then on Friday, a 25 Years of Ducks Community Dedication will take place at Honda Center, where “all fans in attendance will have the opportunity to designate Anaheim Ducks Foundation funds to 25 local nonprofit organizations that have been charitable partners of the franchise over the past 25 years.”
Finally on Sunday, February 17, legendary player Scott Niedermayer will be honored with a Jersey Retirement Ceremony, during which “special guests will be in attendance to help celebrate Niedermayer’s Ducks career as his No. 27 jersey is raised to the rafters.” For more information, be sure to visit the Anaheim Ducks’ official website.
