The Ducks will honor Scott Niedermayer for his Hall of Fame career in a pregame ceremony that will include the raising of his No. 27 jersey to the rafters at Honda Center on Sunday, Feb. 17. Fans attending Sunday's Ducks-Capitals game are encouraged to be in their seats by 4 p.m.

The Anaheim Ducks Silver Celebration Week will conclude with Niedermayer's jersey retirement, the third such retired number by the Ducks. Notable attendees include Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya, Rob Niedermayer, J.S. Giguere, Chris Pronger, Francois Beauchemin, Travis Moen, Brad May, Kent Huskins and Jason Marshall. Selanne (No. 8) was the first Ducks player to have his jersey retired on Jan. 11, 2015, and Kariya (No. 9) saw his jersey lifted to the Honda Center rafters on Oct. 21, 2018.

Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013, Niedermayer was the first player in hockey history to win a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title. He is also the only player in hockey history to have won a combination of four Stanley Cups and two Olympic gold medals. A 2003-04 James Norris Memorial Trophy winner as the NHL's top defenseman, Niedermayer was named an NHL All-Star six times during his NHL career (1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2008 and 2009).

Niedermayer led the Ducks to their first Stanley Cup and won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2007. He played five seasons with the Ducks, scoring 60-204=264 points over 371 contests. The Cranbrook, British Columbia native remains the Ducks' all-time leader in goals, assists, points and power-play goals (39) among club defensemen.
