The Ducks have signed their top prospect Cutter Gauthier to a three-year, entry-level contract, adding one of the most promising young talents in the world to a burgeoning stable of young stars. He is expected to make his debut in Thursday’s season finale in which the Ducks will visit the Vegas Golden Knights. The versatile, volume-shooting forward will join lottery picks Trevor Zegras, Leo Carlsson, Mason McTavish and the three Canadian junior defensemen of the year last season (Pavel Mintyukov, Olen Zellweger and Tristan Luneau) among those who offer the Ducks a potential nucleus of the futu ..read more

Ducks’ rally falls short as Flames spoil Jakob Silfverberg’s home farewell

ANAHEIM — Jakob Silfverberg’s last home game as a Duck was also Sam Colangelo’s first, and they skated on a line together in the final 60 minutes of the season at Honda Center, where Calgary prevailed, 6-3. All sentimentality and fanfare receded quickly as the result of a quick start from the Flames, who struck twice in each of the first two periods. The juxtaposition of a soon-to-retire mainstay and a recent college graduate making his NHL debut got overshadowed by an even more stark contrast, that of the Ducks’ first 40 minutes Friday to their final 20, in which they nearly erased a four-goa ..read more

The final installment of this season’s Freeway Faceoff will unfold on Saturday night at Crypto.com Arena, where the Kings will welcome the Ducks. When they last clashed Tuesday at Honda Center, the Ducks spoiled the Kings’ chances to clinch a playoff berth and added intrigue to the season series with a 3-1 win. Though the Kings have since clinched, they were still not locked into a specific first-round matchup as of Friday while the Ducks, whose playoff hopes went from slim to nonexistent long ago, could salvage five out of a possible eight points against the rival Kings in the season series ..read more

Ducks winger Jakob Silfverberg announced his retirement Thursday after 12 NHL seasons, 11 of which were spent in Orange County, where he’ll play his final home game Friday against Calgary. “It’s not a decision that was made yesterday by any means, it’s something that’d been (decided) a while back. I’ve kind of slowly been preparing for it, but it’ll still be a weird feeling tomorrow, my last game at Honda Center,” Silverberg, 33, said. “Hopefully, we’ll have a good game. It’s going to be a special night for sure.” Silfverberg, who was in the final year of his contract but said he still felt “e ..read more

It’ll be fan appreciation night Friday for the final home game of the Ducks’ 30th anniversary season, when they’ll be pitted against the Calgary Flames. Of late, there’s been a theme of player appreciation, as the Ducks build solidarity from a season that’s featured just five winning streaks and only one longer than two games. They could obtain their sixth, as they’re coming off a 3-1 victory over the same Kings that the middling Flames will have played only a night earlier. Though the Ducks remained without key figures like Mason McTavish and Pavel Mintyukov, they have seen three core forward ..read more

Willie O’Ree still dedicated to growing hockey, advocating for social change

Before the Kings took their thrones in L.A., the Ducks migrated to Anaheim or Wayne Gretzky touched down in Southern California, Willie O’Ree was one of the region’s first hockey stars, illuminating the ice with the Los Angeles Blades and the original San Diego Gulls. O’Ree, who had broken the NHL’s color barrier as its first Black player with the Boston Bruins in 1958 (a decade and a half before another would arrive in the pros) became a goal-scoring champion in the old Western Hockey League, partially because of a move to right wing, where he could finally see oncoming passes. O’Ree, now 88 ..read more

The Ducks appeared to be facing forward with a competitive effort against a top team and then a convincing victory, but they started their final homestand this season with a lukewarm showing Friday. Now, they’ll pivot into a Sunday showdown with the desperation-fueled St. Louis Blues, who entered their back-to-back set with the San Jose Sharks on Saturday and Ducks on Sunday seven points behind the Kings for the final Western Conference postseason spot. “We played a couple good games in a row in Vancouver and Calgary, then (Friday) we looked flatter than water on a plate,” coach Greg Cronin sa ..read more
