The 2005–06 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim season was the 13th season of operation (12th season of play) for the National Hockey League franchise. This would be the last season the team would be called the "Mighty Ducks" before switching to a shortened name the "Anaheim Ducks" the following season.

2005 off-season[edit]

On June 20, the Ducks hired Brian Burke as their executive vice president and general manager.[1] Other key hirings included Bob Murray as the club's senior vice president of hockey operations on July 14 and Randy Carlyle as the head coach on August 1.[1]

In the Entry Draft, the Mighty Ducks chose Bobby Ryan as their first-round pick, second overall. As the previous season had been cancelled, the draft order was set by lottery. The Ducks, given two balls in the lottery process, were likely to go in the middle of the pack, but instead received the second pick, the first going to the Pittsburgh Penguins, who selected Sidney Crosby.

The Mighty Ducks signed free agent Scott Niedermayer, a former James Norris Memorial Trophy winner. One reason Niedermayer signed was to play with his brother, Rob Niedermayer.

Captain Steve Rucchin was traded to the New York Rangers in August, and Scott Niedermayer was named his replacement as captain.

Regular season[edit]

The Ducks finished third in the Pacific Division and sixth overall in the Western Conference to qualify for the playoffs.

Playoffs[edit]

The Ducks won a seven-game Conference Quarter-finals (4–3) against the Calgary Flames. The Ducks next took on and defeated the Colorado Avalanche in the Conference Semi-final. The Ducks then advanced to the Conference Final for the second time in franchise history, though they lost the series four games to one to the Edmonton Oilers.
