Mighty Ducks Primary Logo
The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim is a professional hockey team based in California. The team had a fascinating history with its primary logo, which began when the franchise was founded in 1993.
When the Mighty Ducks first came into existence, they used a unique logo featuring an anthropomorphic duck wearing ice skates and holding up a hockey stick while wearing a jaunty blue hat. This whimsical design captured the fun spirit of ice hockey and quickly became popular among fans all over North America. However, after just three years as part of Disney’s ownership group, it was decided that this logo no longer fit with the direction they wanted to take for their brand image, so it was retired in 1996.
In 1997, following Disney’s sale of the franchise to Henry Samueli (the current owner), new owners retooled much about what made up “Mighty Duckness,” including changing its name from “Mighty Ducks Of Anaheim" to simply "Anaheim Ducks." With this change also came one final alteration to their primary logo: swapping out its cartoonish mascot for something more serious—an aggressive-looking duck head sporting two crossed sticks behind him on either side—and thus creating one iconic piece that still stands today as both recognizable symbols within NHL circles but also beloved by many loyal fans who have followed them since day one!

The old logo of the Ducks prior to the name change featured an old style goaltender mask, shaped to form the appearance of a duck bill. Behind the mask are two intersecting hockey sticks, a black circle and a green triangle.
