Our All-Time Top 50 Anaheim Ducks have been updated to reflect the 2021/22 Season

Our All-Time Top 50 Anaheim Ducks have been updated to reflect the 2021/22 Season
14 Oct
Not in Hall of Fame

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity.  As such, we are very happy to present our post 2021/22 revision of our top Anaheim Ducks.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2.  Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Hockey League. 

3.  Playoff accomplishments.

4.  Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Last year, Anaheim failed to make the playoffs, and went on a fire sale at the end of the year trading assets, including players who are ranked here.  Nevertheless, there were two new entries.

As always, we present our top five, which remained the same from last year:

1. Teemu Selanne

2. Ryan Getzlaf

3. Paul Kariya

4. Corey Perry

5. Jean-Sebastian Giguere

You can find the entire list here.

Getzlaf notably closed out his career in 2022, but we felt he did not quite do enough to overtake Selanne for the top spot.

12-year veteran, Defenseman, Cam Fowler went up one spot to #7.

Defenseman, Hampus Lindholm, who was traded to the Boston Bruins late last season, was unable to move past #9.

Goalie, John Gibson, edged up one spot to #12.

Forward, Rickard Rakell, who was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins last last year also held the same spot.  He is ranked at #15.  

Another Duck, Jakob Silfverberg, who is still active is still at the same rank, #17.

The same goes for Defenseman, Josh Manson, who also was unable to advance from his spot at #21 before he was traded last year to Colorado, where he won a Stanley Cup.

The first of two new entries is Center, Adam Henrique, who arrived from a trade from New Jersey in 2017.

The second entry is current top sniper, Troy Terry, who lit the lamp 37 times last season.  He debuts at #42.

Henrique and Terry knock out Nick Ritchie and Jason Marshall from the Top 50.

We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
