Good Morning Ducks fans! It’s game day again. Tonight it’s the Pittsburgh Penguins we will see at Honda Center in the battle of the birds.
As the adrenaline from the trade deadline wears off and we get back to business as usual, we start to look at other opinions on things again. You SHOULD have already read our take on Stephane Robidas coming to the team, here is another perspective on the deal.
For those of you who may not know, Chris Getzlaf of the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders is the brother of Ryan Getzlaf. Apparently, there is something in the family genetics. Chris celebrated winning the Grey Cup with his team in November. Apparently, these brothers pushed each other to excel. Here is a nice article about their family accomplishments.
If you’ve ever watched a Ducks game on television, you’ve heard some interesting phrases coming after intense plays. Read about where John Ahlers picked up those little gems.
In all the chatter of the Trade Deadline, we deviated from our normal Norfolk Admirals coverage. Yesterday, Rickard Rakell made his way back to Anaheim to join the Ducks once again. Read all about it here!
Also, Jesse Blacker returned to action on Wednesday. The Admirals lost to the Charlotte Checkers 3-2 but it’s always a breath of fresh air to have a player return from an injury.
The Admirals take the ice tonight against the Hershey Bears. It’s trading card give away night as well! Series three of the team’s cards are up for grabs to the first 2025 people through the doors of the Scope Arena.
There’s your daily news folks! Let’s get ready to cheer on those Ducks tonight!
