The Anaheim Ducks were founded as an expansion franchise in 1993 by The Walt Disney Company and originally named the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim with the name taking inspiration from the 1992 Walt Disney movie The Mighty Ducks.

The Anaheim Ducks announced Dallas Eakins would not return as head coach a day after wrapping up the 2022-23 season. He didn’t qualify for the playoffs and compiled a record of 100-147-44 in four years as Anaheim’s bench boss.  Anaheim general manager Pat Verbeek will finally get the chance to put his own stamp on the team by hiring a head coach of his choosing.
