Ducks might be more Mighty next season

The Anaheim Ducks moved away from their Disney 1993 origins in 2006-07, prompting some to label them the “(once Mighty) Ducks.” The team’s success kind of ruined that joke, however.

Fans who miss the old duck goalie mask motif and unique color scheme should be delighted by the team’s talk of a “Throwback night” to celebrate the team’s 20th anniversary, then.

Here’s the somewhat vague rundown from Friday:

As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations, the 2013-14 regular season will include a number of special events at Honda Center. Planned occasions will include look backs at great moments in Ducks history and retro merchandise available for purchase. In addition, the club will host a “Throwback Night” near the start of the 2013-14 regular season, paying homage to the inaugural 1993-94 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim season. The club will have further announcements surrounding the festivities at a later date.

The “further announcements surrounding the festivities” line produced some interesting speculation from hockey sweater-obsessed blog Icethetics:

Anyway, it sounds promising. And for what it’s worth, the Ducks could get double-use out of such a throwback jersey. Don’t forget that they play the Kings outdoors on Jan. 25, 2014. That’ll probably involve a throwback jersey of some kind just as every other outdoor NHL game has in the past six years.

Bold prediction: it probably won’t look like this.

While most of this stuff is either low on details or purely speculative, we at least know what the Ducks’ 20th anniversary logo looks like:

This leaves us with many questions, including: is Anaheim’s 20-year logo better than what Florida revealed a couple months ago?

    Ducks are terrible, they might as well not even turn up to training camp. Just stay in the pond and hope someone turns up to throw pieces of bread at you

    It’s generally a bad time when the Panthers logo is better than yours…

    Nothing bad can come from wearing the throwback Mighty Ducks uniforms.

  9. donniesd - Jul 21, 2013 at 8:37 PM

    The Old Ducks logo is still better than the Fat little Penguin on skates that Pitt is stuck with!!!

    Mighty Ducks style but new ducks colors would make awesome jerseys

    I hate that new logo. You don’t have to go back to the Disney Mighty Ducks idea, but at least bring the duck mask back. The old concept was really cartoonish, but it was better than this horrible black, tan, and orange color scheme they have going now. I used to love the Ducks’ uniforms. Now they’re just completely unappealing.

    Just get rid of the current jerseys. Terrible

    Mighty Ducks logo brings back memories of my childhood.

    They should have a large bill below their eye protection and Boudreau should call the Duck Dynasty guys and have a duck call made for different scenario’s . for instance ” hit somebody” no on the other team . This is the 2nd period , so we shoot at the ” other ” net .
