Numbers for Nerds

Since the 2005/06 season, the Anaheim Ducks have been the best team in the second half of the season, winning 64.7% of their games. Since 2015/16 they’ve won 69.9% (nice) of their games. Let’s hope that trend continues.

Also, in the 2018 calendar year Milan Lucic only scored two goals while Edmonton paid him $6 million. He’s also still under contract for another four years. Good thing the Ducks don’t have anyone like that... oh wait.
