2018 is the 25th anniversary of the Anaheim Ducks first NHL season. We honor 25 years of excellence by counting down the best Anaheim Ducks player to wear each jersey number. Today we cover numbers 1-5.
It is mind-boggling that the Anaheim Ducks are celebrating their silver anniversary. For some fans, it may seem like it was only yesterday when the Ducks took the ice at the Pond for the first time.
Others may not have followed the Ducks as long. No matter how far you go back as a Ducks fan, we can all reminisce about the past. Today we finish our stroll down memory lane by honoring the best Ducks to wear jersey’s numbers 1-5. Lower numbers are almost always assigned to defensemen, and of course, only goalies wear number one. Today’s group may not be as flashy as the previous one, but the players profiled today were/are important members of the franchise.
