The ’06-’07 Anaheim Ducks were the 18th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff and made a deep run all the way to the Quarterfinal. Once there, they lost to the 23rd-seeded ’79-’80 Buffalo Sabres, but they were able to upset the Broad Street Bullies before that. In the Second Annual UNP, the ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim were a surprise rep as the 20th seed. They were unable to match the run of the inaugural representatives as they were ousted in just the Second Round.

Players to Watch:

  • RW – Teemu Selanne – Duh.
  • LW – Paul Kariya – Together with Selanne, they were the franchises first dynamic set of “twins.” They lit opponents up game after game after game. Of course, the other set of “twins” I’m referring to are Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Duh.
  • D – Scott Niedermayer – One of the best offensive-defenseman to ever play the game, Scotty was also incredibly good in his own zone. The defensive pairing of Niedermayer and Chris Pronger was ridiculously good.

The tournament results will be posted on the next weekday at 1 pm EST!
