Today October 2nd, marks the 20th anniversary of The Mighty Ducks hitting the ice, well on the big screen at least. The movie eventually carved the way for the actual NHL franchise Mighty Ducks, now named the Anaheim Ducks.
It might seem silly to be writing a post about such a trivial date, but it’s a lockout, what else do we have to celebrate? Nothing is quite like the original and 20 years later the first movie is still the Stanley Cup of the trilogy. The Mighty Ducks were a group of kids that anyone could relate to. Coach Bombay led the way, skates first into the hearts of hockey fans of all ages.
With an ever growing list of hockey movies, the Ducks have been tried and true for two decades. It’s safe to say the Mighty Ducks will not only hold a place in hockey fans hearts, but their DVD shelves too!
So tonight, grab some friends, form that ever famous flying V and quack, quack, quack all the way to your couch. Don’t own it, you can watch it online through Disney On Demand for $1.99. Celebrate the big 2-0 with Coach Bombay, Charlie and the gang, but remember to keep it non nonalcoholic, the team doesn’t hit 21 until next season.Could not parse XML from YouTube
