Kesler's Family Feel the Emotions of His Road to 1,000 NHL Games

by Adam Brady @AdamJBrady / AnaheimDucks.com

It was just after sunrise on Tuesday that the emotion first started to overwhelm Andrea Kesler.

That night in Arizona, her husband Ryan would play in his 1,000th NHL game, a revered milestone in the sport and one that seemed unreachable for Kesler as recently as a year ago. But it was that morning back in their home in Laguna Beach - just before Ryan left to board the team flight for a game with the Coyotes - that really tugged at the heartstrings.

Blood, Sweat, Tears, But Never Doubt: Kesler Set to Play 1,000th NHL Game

Ryan Kesler reflected on what it meant to play in 1,000 career NHL games

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

The physical toll the body takes to play in the National Hockey League is evident when you see Ducks center Ryan Kesler after a game. Bandaged and wrapped, the 34-year-old Livonia, Michigan native has the battle scars and bruises that come from playing a gritty, physical, in-your-face style of game. His stride no longer fluid after multiple surgeries on his hips, including a major procedure in June 2017. Some wondered if he'd ever return to this wonderful sport because of a bad arthritic hip that makes the easiest movements excruciatingly difficult at times.

Toyo Tires Ducks Alumni Spotlight: Chris Pronger

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

It was a special moment last week when members of the 2007 Ducks Stanley Cup champion team reunited to see Scott Niedermayer's No. 27 jersey raised to rafters at Honda Center. Considered one of the best teams ever assembled, it featured future Hall-of-Famers Teemu Selanne, Chris Pronger and, of course, Niedermayer. With a mix of youth and experience, the 2006-07 squad came out of the gates flying and finished the regular season with a 48-20-14 record. They carried that momentum into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, where they went 16-5 to capture California's first Cup.

Living with the Niedermayers Meant Everything to Fowler

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

It wasn't long after Cam Fowler was drafted by the Ducks in June 2010 when he needed to find a place to live in Orange County. As a baby-faced 18-year-old, Fowler earned a roster spot out of training camp and made his NHL debut shortly after. Adapting to the NHL game is hard enough, let alone all the other responsibilities that come with living on your own as a first-year pro.
