The 2014–15 Anaheim Ducks season was the 22nd season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 15, 1993.[2] The Ducks won 51 regular season games and defeated the Winnipeg Jets and Calgary Flames in the playoffs before falling to the Chicago Blackhawks in a seven-game Western Conference Final. 2015 marked the third playoffs in a row from which the Ducks were eliminated by losing a Game 7 at home after leading 3–2 after Game 5. Also, their final two losses to the Blackhawks were the only two playoff games the Ducks lost in regulation.

Off-seasonEdit

On May 19, 2014, the team announced a four-year contract extension for General Manager Bob Murray to keep him under contract through the 2019–20 season.[3]

New uniforms Edit

On June 27, 2014, the Ducks revealed new home and away jerseys, both based on the previous third jersey design that had been in use since 2010. The previous primary jerseys that had been worn since 2006 were subsequently retired.

Regular season Edit

The Ducks retired Teemu Selanne's number 8 on January 11, when they hosted the Winnipeg Jets.[4] The Ducks defeated Winnipeg 5–4 in a comeback shootout victory following the ceremony.
