As part of the Anaheim Ducks Future Ducks Rink Program, the Ducks are visiting several rinks in the Southern California area, which started in October and continues through February. Players will visit seven of the program’s rinks, where they will interact with a youth hockey team by visiting their locker room or actually lacing up their skates with the team during their practice. Not only do youth hockey players get the chance to meet their favorite Ducks players, but they have the opportunity to get some advice or learn from them on the ice as well.
