Tonight at Honda Center the Anaheim Ducks will honor our Military Armed Forces. The pre-game festivities will feature members of the US Army rappelling from the rafters as part of the honorary puck drop. Anaheim Ducks players will be wearing camouflage jerseys during the pre-game warm-up for the annual Military Appreciation Night. Following the game, the jerseys will be autographed and available in an online auction at AnaheimDucks.com/auction. If the jerseys don’t appear on the website right after the game, then check back each day as sometimes there is a delay.

They accomplish this by providing free hockey equipment and access to some of the finest summer hockey camps at no cost, and grants to help with local association fees.
Thank you to everyone that is currently serving in our armed forces and to the veterans that have already done so.
