Original Mighty Ducks Jersey

1993-2006

The original official team colors and logo were unveiled on June 7, 1993, and Mighty Ducks merchandise was immediately propelled into one of the top sellers in all of professional sports. Plum, jade, silver and white were chosen as the team's colors while a distinctive crest featuring a duck headshaped hockey mask was chosen to give the franchise a unique identity. As a testament to the logo's popularity, the Ducks original jersey was named the "most fashionable" in all of sports at the inaugural ESPY awards in 1997. The jersey was not only the No. 1 seller in the NHL that year, but it outsold all other NHL jerseys combined.

Wild Wing 'Breakout' Jersey

1995-96

The Mighty Ducks' first-ever third jersey - featuring a cartoon Wild Wing breaking through ice - became part of franchise lore, despite the fact it was worn in only three games. (Ironically, the Ducks won two of those games, 4-2 over the Dallas Stars and 5-1 over the St. Louis Blues but lost 5-4 to the Kings in LA.) 

Plum and Teal Striped Jersey

1997-2000

The Ducks introduced home and road third jerseys featuring striping across the chest and sleeves as well as a switch from plum to black pants. Both looks lasted into the 1999-2000 season, after which the franchise dropped the third jersey and returned to plum pants.

Black Script Third Jerseys

2003-06

The Mighty Ducks introduced a new black and plum third jersey with an "old-time hockey" look that featured horizontal stripes, a lace up neck, the absence of the signature teal and "Anaheim" spelled out in script font across the chest.

Wordmark Stanley Cup Champions Jersey

2006-14

In the spring of 2005, Henry and Susan Samueli entered into an agreement with the Walt Disney Company to purchase the Ducks franchise, keeping the Mighty Ducks name and look for the first season of ownership. On June 22, 2006, a new era began for the franchise as the team became officially known as the Anaheim Ducks. In addition, a new logo and color scheme was unveiled, a collaborative effort that took into account opinions of fans as well as Ducks players, ownership and management. All parties involved unanimously decided to go beyond simply altering the original concept of an aggressive duck character.


In shaping the new design, the focus was sharpened to create an overall image that expressed excitement, speed and a competitive edge. In addition, a classic color palette of black and metallic gold was developed, with an accent of orange as a metaphorical link to the team's Orange County home. The result was a strong, typographic mark anchored by a stylized "D" that echoed the image of a duck's foot or footprint. The lettering for the player names and numbers were a team-created font used on every Ducks jersey thereafter. The new uniforms were an evolution of the earlier sweater design but with gold, white and orange sweeping stripes influenced by the curves of the "D" in the Ducks logo. Set with a new look for the 2006-07 season, the Ducks made history and won California's first Stanley Cup.


The most noticeable difference on the Ducks jerseys were around the neck, where orange v-shaped striping and an NHL shield was added at the peak, while the wordmark logo was made slightly smaller.

Ducks 'D' Jersey

2010-Present

The Ducks introduced the fourth third jersey in its franchise history, a black sweater that significantly featured a "D" webbed foot logo crest rather than the "Ducks" wordmark. Orange was featured more prominently as a color accent and a modified Mighty Ducks oval mark patch was added on both shoulders as a nod to the franchise's historical roots.


The popularity of the Ducks "D" on the third jersey prompted the team to switch to that as the primary logo in 2014, and it was displayed on both the home and road jerseys thereafter. The Mighty Ducks shoulder patches from the third jersey were also added, while horizontal striping was changed to the vertical style incorporated into the third and lace-up details were added to the collar.

Stadium Series Jersey

January 2014

An orange jersey was worn for the first time in franchise history, and for only one game - the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series battle against the Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium on January 25, 2014. The color was a tribute to the team's Orange County home, as was the "OC" patch featured prominently on the left shoulder. A chrome overlay was added to the "D" logo, the same touch that was added to the crests of every team playing in the Stadium Series. The Ducks shutout the rival Kings 3-0 in the game.

Orange Third Jersey

2015-17

Spurred by fan appreciation of the Stadium Series jersey, the Ducks debuted an orange third jersey featuring a reconditioned Mighty Ducks crest in a new colorway, the Ducks "D" as a shoulder patch and a horizontal striping pattern. It was the first jersey to principally feature the Mighty Ducks logo and quickly became a fan favorite.

adidas 25th Anniversary Third Jersey

To be worn only during the Ducks' 25th Anniversary season, the team unveiled a new adidas third jersey in July 2018 that once again pays tribute to the franchise's storied history. The primarily black jersey incorporates diagonal striping with the traditional colors of teal, plum and silver and features a Mighty Ducks quilted logo that replicates the original 1993 version. A nod to the present look comes in the form of the Ducks "D" logo on the shoulders, while the lettering for the player name and number is the current font (introduced in 2006) in teal, black and white. Additional touches include black plants with teal striping, a lace-up yoke and silver 25th Anniversary labeling inside the neck.


The jersey will be worn during the Ducks home opener on October 8 vs. Detroit, 25 years to the day those two teams faced off in the first game in Mighty Ducks franchise history. The Ducks will wear the jersey in 14 other games during the 2018-19 season (schedule coming soon).
