Fun Fact: Did You Know? The National Hockey League club was founded in 1993 by The Walt Disney Company and was originally known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, a name which was inspired by the 1992 film, “The Mighty Ducks.” The name remained the same until the 2006-2007 season, when the club officially became known as the Anaheim Ducks.
