The 2005–06 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim season was the 12th season in franchise history.

Pre-season[edit | edit source]

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 over-all. 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 chose Sidney Crosby.

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