Meaning and History

Anaheim Ducks Logo history

In 1992, Disney CEO Michael Eisner came up with the idea of creating an NHL team in Anaheim, especially considering that a new $103 million stadium was built in the city and was often empty due to the lack of permanent “tenants”. The Anaheim Ducks hockey club from the city of Anaheim (California, USA) was founded in 1993, it has had its current name since 2006 (formerly the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim). The ducks got their name from the movie The Mighty Ducks, produced by Walt Disney Pictures, which owned the club. Eisner decided to play on the popularity of this film among Americans and was not mistaken. Season 05/06 was a year of change. Anaheim got new owners, Henry and Susan Samuelly, a new general manager, head coach, and a new leader, Scott Niedermeier, the NHL’s top defenseman in 2004.

The star of the logo is the letter “D” which is drawn to resemble the duck’s webbed foot.
