Pro Hockey Rumors » Anaheim Ducks
by Josh Erickson

The Kings announced Thursday that they’ve named Newell Brown an assistant coach. He’d served in the same role for the Ducks for the past three seasons, but earlier this month, Anaheim announced they wouldn’t be renewing his contract.

He’s been behind an NHL bench as an assistant in every season since 1996, working with the Blackhawks, Blue Jackets, Canucks, Coyotes and Ducks but has never gotten a shot as a head coach at the highest level.

The Anaheim Ducks have signed defense prospect Rodwin Dionicio to a three-year entry-level contract set to begin next season.

Offseason Checklist: Anaheim Ducks

The offseason has arrived for half of the league’s teams that aren’t taking part in the playoffs plus several others who have already been eliminated.  Accordingly, it’s now time to examine what they will need to accomplish over the coming months.  Next up is a look at Anaheim. As expected, this season was a rough one for the Ducks who didn’t exactly improve their fortunes much from 2022-23.  While they finished seventh in the Pacific instead of last, they only had one more point than the year before with a mixed bag of performances from their young core.  GM Pat Verbeek ma ..read more

The Ducks will likely fill their captaincy vacancy ahead of next season, GM Pat Verbeek said this week to NHL.com. The club has played its last two seasons without a captain after 12-year “C”-wearer Ryan Getzlaf retired in 2022. 32-year-old defenseman Cam Fowler would be the presumptive choice as the longest-tenured Duck on the roster, and he still logs major minutes as he crosses the peak of his career. Fowler led the club in average ice time (24:25) by a considerable margin this season and still managed 39 points in 81 games, although his -36 rating was the worst on the team ..read more
