Goaltenders

J.S. Giguere

Guy Hebert

One thing that NHL 20 did get right on the Ducks alumni team was the goalies, as both J.S. Giguere and Guy Hebert are on this team. When looking at the history of the team, the Anaheim Ducks have always had stable goaltending, highlighted by these two players.

Hebert was the original Mighty Duck, picked with the team’s first selection in the Expansion Draft, and had eight productive seasons as the Ducks goaltender, highlighted by an All-Star selection in 1997. Once Hebert showed that his days in the NHL were numbered, in stepped Giguere who went on to become the greatest goaltender in team history, holding a number of team records to go along with the 2003 Conn Smyth trophy and 2007 Stanley Cup.

Though goaltending is not as important in EA’s version of NHL, you will still be comfortable playing knowing you have these two Ducks legends playing behind your team. How do you think this team of Anaheim Ducks Legends would stack up in today’s EA NHL series? Are there any players that I didn’t discuss who should be a part of this team?
