The 1994–95 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim season was the second season in franchise history. Despite a Conference-worst 5-18-1 road record, the team played well at home, with an 11-9-4 record. On April 4, the team traded enforcer Stu Grimson, Mark Ferner and the team's 6th round choice in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft to the Detroit Red Wings for Mike Sillinger and Jason York. Twenty-year-old rookie Paul Kariya was a candidate for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie, scoring 18 goals and 39 points in 47 games (the award ultimately went to Quebec's Peter Forsberg).

Offseason[edit]

Defenceman Randy Ladouceur is named team captain, following the departure of Troy Loney.

Regular season[edit]

The Mighty Ducks finished last in power-play percentage (11.39%) and penalty-kill percentage (75.65%). The team was also shut out a league-high 6 times during the regular season.[1][2]
