NHL's Anaheim Ducks
The Honda Center in Anaheim is the hottest place on ice as National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks are the city's most recent championship team having won the Stanley Cup in 2007. The club was founded in 1993 by The Walt Disney Company as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, a name based on the 1992 film The Mighty Ducks. Disney sold the franchise in 2005 to Henry and Susan Samueli, who changed the name of the team to the Anaheim Ducks before the 2006-07 season. In their 17-year history, the Ducks have qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs eight times. The Anaheim Ducks are the only California team to have won the Stanley Cup.
