Ever wonder what happened to the cast of this famous flick? Some have gone on to stardom, while others have dropped off the map. We’re here to dish out the deets, as well as a dose of trivia and facts you can use to impress friends who are just getting into the new series.
Joshua Jackson as Charlie Conway
Through all three films, Joshua Jackson played Charlie Conway, the courageous captain of the Ducks. His character had a big mentor and mentee relationship with Emilio Estevez's Gordon Bombay, and the relationship became one of the biggest hearts of the series as Conway grows older and becomes an adult.
It's one of the reasons why the films still resonate with people – whether they're older or younger, viewers are able to find a character dynamic that they can connect to. An older adult that wants to do good for kids, or a kid that is ready to learn from a mentor, even if it's just so he can avoid the mentor's mistakes.
Joshua Jackson Today
Thanks in part to his time with the Ducks, Joshua Jackson became a teen idol almost immediately following the end of the series. This was also due to take on the role of Percy on “Dawson's Creek,” and after six seasons at the Creek, he was pretty much set for life as far as work goes.
He moved on to adult roles, including becoming the male lead on the long-running science-fiction series “Fringe.” He's married to Jodie Turner-Smith, and the two welcomed their first child in April of 2020. Recently he's been in the short series “Dr. Death” and also had a recurring role in “The Affair.”
Elden Henson as Fulton Reed
He was a huge character, but Fulton Reed also had a heart of gold, appearing in all three movies of the Ducks trilogy. Henson looks back on the role with happiness and mentioned in an interview with “TV Guide” that he still gets recognized for his role on the hockey trilogy more than anything else.
Even when he was a kid, playing baseball, he would get people quacking at him. But he still loved the movies, saying that the kind of opportunity they offered only comes around once in a lifetime. “I feel just feel really lucky,” he said, about being a part of the series.
Elden Henson Today
After his time on the ice finished, Henson went on to have a successful movie and television career, though being a famous A-listed might not be in the cards. The apex of his career came in the mid-2010s when he was able to be part of two of the biggest franchises in the world.
At the same time, he was not only Pollux in the “Hunger Games” movies, a character that goes from cameraman to slave to rebel through the course of the movies. but he was also Foggy Nelson in the Netflix series “Daredevil,” as well as the other shows set in the same continuity (“Jessica Jones,” etc.).
Matt Doherty as Lester Averman
The group of kids that made up the Ducks was diverse in the different types of thinking. Case in point: Lester Averman, a bespectacled nerd who is nonetheless happy and ready to jump into anything that will help his team win. Matt Doherty portrayed this curly-haired character, and at the same time, he was building a resume with appearances in “Home Alone” (Steffan, Kevin's cousin.)
Of course, he was also in the Mike Myers film “So I Married an Axe Murderer.” While he's good on the ice, Lester has easily pushed around by opposing enforcers. The character also provides a lot of the show's comic relief.
Matt Doherty Today
While the larger career of Doherty wound down after “D3” came out, he's still managed to appear on a number of shows and in a few movies such as “Grey's Anatomy,” “Ghost World,” “Argo,” “Bones,” and “CSI: Miami.” He's also picked up another passion – writing. He got some schooling done at Northwestern University, graduating in 1999, and now has a theater degree.
He's been working as a playwright and writer ever since. He wrote and directed the short “First Stone,” which came out in 2012. He originally auditioned for the role of Fulton Reed and got the Averman role when Hensen was picked as the enforcer.
Brandon Quintin Adams as Jesse Hall
For only the first two films, Brandon Quintin Adams portrayed Jesse Hall on the team. His performance in the first movie was good enough to earn him a Young Artist Award nomination. He didn't win it that time, but his role as Kenny DuNunez in “The Sandlot” earned him not only another nom but a piece of hardware when he won.
Jesse was at first suspicious of Coach Bombay, thinking he was a rich dealer. As a forward, he was a leader on the ice and was known for his sharpshooting. In the famous flying V, he took the lead spot.
Brandon Quintin Adams Today
Both before and after the trilogy of Ducks movies, Adams had a number of well-known roles, including the aforementioned part in “The Sandlot.” In his television career, he had small parts in “Quantum Leap” as “Older Brother.” He was in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” in a pair of episodes and appeared as two different characters.
He's moved onto voice-overs and acting, including lending his voice to video games such as “Kingdom Hearts II.” He worked with Michael Jackson a few times, including a part in the “Smooth Criminal” music video as “Zeke.”
Marguerite Moreau as Connie Moreau
Independent and skilled, Connie Moreau was the Ducks' single female player. As an efficient skater and skilled puck handler, she's able to throw off defenses, though her small size makes her vulnerable to opposing enforcers. The last name of her character comes from Moreau's own name. Connie was a major part of both sequels and has also appeared in the new series.
During the series, she and fellow skater Guy Germaine are frequently seen holding hands, indicating they're in a relationship. One of Connie's big off-the-ice contributions to the plot was standing up for Charlie when he sticks up for Coach Bombay, which ends with all of them “quacking at the principal.”
Marguerite Moreau Today
While she was a big part of the Ducks, Moreau's biggest splash came in 1999, when she starred in the cult classic comedy film “Wet Hot American Summer.” She was in both of the sequels, which came in 2015 and 2017. Her start in acting came in 1991 with a single episode of “The Wonder Years.”
Since then, she's been appearing in all sorts of shows and movies, from horror films like “Queen of the Damned” to comedy-drama films like “Paddleton,” as well as serious, famous dramas like “Mad Men” and the psychological thriller show “Tell Me a Story.”
Emilio Estevez as Coach Gordon Bombay
Emilio Estevez's career has had its ups and downs, but his part of the Ducks trilogy is most certainly an up. He was already a famous actor thanks to his inclusion in the brat pack movies, such as “The Breakfast Club.” His portrayal of the alcoholic lawyer and ex-hockey player who is forced to become a coach to this team – after being arrested for driving under the influence.
He becomes an inspiration to the kids since he was something of a hockey star himself when he was a kid, but his brash, confrontational manner made it difficult for him to make friends.
Emilio Estevez Today
This famous actor has done plenty of acting and work both in front of and behind the camera. He's reprised the role of Gordon Bombay for the Disney Plus sequel series “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.” Alongside his brother Charlie Sheen, and his father Martin Sheen, Estevez is a fantastic actor, and he also managed to avoid the issues that have plagued his brother.
Just in the last few years, he's also been in “Guns 3: Alias Billy the Kid” (still in production), which he is also directing, and “The Public.” He's slipped into more directing, picking up both full movies and episodes of shows like “CSI: NY,” “Cold Case,” and “Numb3rs.”
Kenan Thompson as Russ Tyler
Appearing first in “D2,” Russ Tyler joins the team after player Adam Banks suffers a wrist injury. His big contribution to the team was teaching them his special “knuckle puck,” a slapshot that travels in a sine curve rather than a direct, straight shot. Talkative and outgoing, Tyler's addition to the team helped their chances against Team Iceland in “D2” become a greater reality.
While his playing was overall unrefined, he still contributed to the team when they needed him the most. He, along with the other members of the team, attended Eden Hall Academy during the time of “D3.”
Kenan Thompson Today
From his spot on the classic Nickelodeon comedy movie “Good Burger,” to his working relationship with Kel, to appearing on “Saturday Night Live” as a cast member – the longest-tenured cast member ever, since he joined in 2003 – it might be fair to say that Kenan ended up with the best career out of all the young skaters from the Ducks.
He's appeared in lots of television series, including one that is simply titled “Kenan.” It's all thanks to “D2,” which was his very first acting job. He's now also working as a producer and a writer for his own show and several others.
Vincent LaRusso as Devin Banks
While he is at first a star player for the Hawks, the Ducks' rivals, it turns out that Banks was playing for the wrong team the whole time – he resides in the Ducks' district. At first, the team refuses to trust him, but his skills are too good to ignore. Unquestionably the best player on the team, at least offensively.
But he ends up getting injured too often, such as in the second film when he tries to hide his wrist injury in order to keep playing against Team Iceland. The rest of the team called him “cake-eater” when he first joined due to his richer family, though the term became one of endearment by the end of the first film.
Vincent LaRusso Today
After the end of the Ducks series, LaRusso dropped out of acting. He studied at Boston University's School of Management and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He currently lives in New York City, where he works in the hospitality sector. In recent years he has become a regular presence at conventions, reunions, and other “The Mighty Ducks” events.
He made an appearance in “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.” He has had a few small roles since moving on, though they've been small and mostly for fun, including, bizarrely, as a bank robber in “Superhero Movie.”
Shaun Weiss as Greg Goldberg
Thanks to his impeccable comedic timing, Shaun Weiss, as overweight goalie Greg Goldberg became an instant fan favorite. Unfortunately, he was initially terrified of the puck coming toward him, making him a less-than-effective goalie. Coach Bombay fixes this by tying him to the net and having the rest of the team pelt him with pucks.
It served the double purpose of giving the kids shot practice while also teaching Greg that his armor was thick enough to keep him safe. He is scared when the team brings in Julie as a goalie in “D2,” but his skills continued to improve, and he eventually becomes cocky. In “D3,” he becomes a defenseman, which he discovers is much more his speed.
Shaun Weiss Today
Instead of joining new projects, Shaun Weiss has had the unfortunate luck of getting caught up in problems with the law multiple times. He was arrested in 2017 for possession of illegal substances, and his mugshot went viral. He was arrested again in 2020 for burglary.
According to his social media, he's been clean and sober since his arrest in 2020. Keep it up, Shaun! Other than the hockey films, Weiss has been in “Freaks and Geeks,” “The King of Queens,” and “Boy Meets World.” THAT'S where you know him from.
Danny Tamberelli as Tommy Duncan
It's always a surprise to people that Danny Tamberelli's character Tommy Duncan didn't even make it to “D2” since he was one of the comedic highlights of the first film. As an original member of the team, he convinces his sister Tammy to switch from figure skating to hockey in order to help the team.
It's implied that Tommy acts tough around his sister, but she's older, and he always underestimates her, which results in her beating him at everything. Tommy was a defenseman on the team, but his skills were nothing special. Still, he got the audience laughing, and that's all that mattered.
Danny Tamberelli Today
Even if you don't recognize his face, you probably know his voice – Tamberelli was Arnold Perlstein on “The Magic School Bus,” Joseph Anza on “Fillmore!” and more. He also provided the voice of Jimmy, Michael's slacker son in “Grand Theft Auto V,” and was one of the Petes on “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.”
Nowadays, he's mostly traded acting for music and plays in a number of bands in his home state of New Jersey. He's been married to Katelyn Detweiler since 2018, and the two have a child together. He's also the host of a podcast with Michael C. Maronna, the other Pete from “Pete & Pete.”
Mike Vitar as Luis Mendoza
Joining the team in “D2,” Mike Vitar played Luis Mendoza. He's by far the team's fastest skater, clocking 1.9 seconds from blue line to blue line. His problem on the ice isn't getting up to speed – it's stopping, and the second movie in the trilogy features a number of humorous collisions before he learns more control.
In “D3,” his storyline has him flirting with the head cheerleader, who is also the girlfriend of the varsity hockey captain. By the end of the movie, he has successfully charmed her, and she kisses him after the Varsity vs. JV game.
Mike Vitar Today
Before he retired from acting in 1997, Vitar was not only in a pair of the Ducks movies, but he was a big part of “The Sandlot,” acting as Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez. He only acted for six years, first starting with the 1991 movie “Diplomatic Immunity.” Since 2002 he has been a firefighter with the Los Angeles Fire Department, and he currently resides in Los Angeles.
He got into legal trouble when he, along with a few other men, assaulted someone on Halloween, believing the man was handing out illegal substances. Their victim suffered cardiac arrest and had to be revived – by the same men that had assaulted him. Sounds fishy.
Aaron Lohr as Dean Portman
Portman is another character that didn't join the team until the second movie, played by Aaron Lohr. Portman quickly becomes friends with fellow enforcer Fulton Reed, becoming the other half of the “Bash Brothers” group that helped defend the Ducks' net. Portman doesn't appear very much in “D3” since he chooses not to attend Eden Hall with the rest of the team.
He does, however, show up in the last fifteen minutes to help out in the Varsity vs. JV game. His physical style of play sometimes works against him, and both movies see him being penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Aaron Lohr Today
Lohr was one of Disney's go-to child stars during the nineties. His career began in 1984, in the movie “Deniece Williams: Let's Hear It for the Boy,” which doesn't even have a Wikipedia page. His role was “young boy.” He was also in “Newsies” and provided the singing voice for Max in “A Goofy Movie.”
After the Ducks, Lohr was in “Rent” and numerous episodes of television. He is currently a family therapist and serves as the clinical director of Avalon Malibu Residential Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Center. He's married to Broadway star Idina Menzel, best known for being the voice of Elsa on “Frozen.”
Jussie Smollett as Terry Hall
Jussie Smollett as Terry Hall only appeared in the first movie in the series, along with his older on-screen brother Jesse Hall. Terry plays at the forward position. One possible explanation for not being included in the second film is that his character would have been too young to play in the Goodwill game that was the movie's central conflict.
He is just a few of the characters that appear in the first film to not appear in either of the sequel movies, including Karp, Tammy and Tommy Duncan, and Peter. While Jesse was the main character, Terry was a secondary player on the team and didn't get as much screen time.
Jussie Smollett Today
Smollett stuck with acting, and while a lot of his roles didn't turn out to be anything special, he got a lead role on the television series “Empire” from 2015 to 2019. His star came crashing down when he staged a homophobic attack in Chicago, though the two men caught on camera attacking him were actors that Smollett himself had hired.
He was arrested and charged for making up the story, and he filed a countersuit saying he had been the target of “mass ridicule.” The details are a lot more complicated than that, but he's also been indicted on six counts for making false police reports.
Colombe Jacobsen-Derstine as Julie “The Cat” Gaffney
With a quick glove and a quick smile, Julie became the team's second goalie to back up Greg Goldberg. She first appeared in “D2,” sacrificing playing for her home team to play with Team USA. Though skilled in the net, she can be hot-tempered and is flagged for kicking Team Iceland players in the shins during one of the early games.
A miracle save in the last second of the final game gave Team USA the win. She plays primarily in stand-up style, though she alternates to butterfly style a few times. Along with Connie Moreau, she's one of only two female players on the team in “D2.”
Colombe Jacobsen-Derstine Today
While CJD has done a little bit of acting since “D3” came out in 1996, she's focused most of her time on becoming a professional chef. She attended New York's Natural Gourmet School in 2004 and appeared on Food Network's “The Next Food Network Star” in 2007. Now she hosts “Colombe du Jour,” her own food-related website and blog.
The other roles she's been in include “Men in Black II” as a video store clerk, “Moonlight Mile” as Patty, and “Searching for Haizmann” as Hannah Allen. She is married to Jeffrey Lefleur and has two children.
Aaron Schwartz as Dave Karp
When Coach Bombay first joined the team, Dave Karp was one of the players that trusted him the least. Karp often responded with sarcastic quips when Bombay would say something, but as the movie wore on, he came to accept Bombay more and more.
He is a defenseman and is often light-hearted and comedic – he liked to play pranks. Karp is part of the cast of the first film that does not reappear in either of the sequels. Played by Aaron Schwartz, he is a secondary character that does not get much development, simply there to round out the team and grow the ensemble.
Aaron Schwartz Today
Schwartz went on to have a relatively successful career in acting. His next film after “The Mighty Ducks” was as the lead role in “Heavyweights,” Gerry Garner. He was out of acting for about fifteen years, from 1995 to 2009, when he then got a recurring role on the show “Gossip Girl.”
He was also on a few episodes of “The Adventures of Pete & Pete” along with fellow Ducks actor Danny Tamberelli. “Gossip Girl” got his career going again, appearing in numerous episodes of television and movies. He was, weirdly, the facial reference for “Young Ego” in “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” Imagine having to explain that one when you go in for an interview.
J.D. Daniels as Peter Mark
Rarely seen without his backward baseball cap, Mark was the most sarcastic and the rudest member of the team in the first movie, especially to Banks. He's the biggest troublemaker on the team, and he's the player that leads a walkout on Coach Bombay after hearing Bombay say something about the team – though the quote was out of context and misinterpreted.
He thinks he's a hotshot, often wearing a leather jacket, and often overhears things without fully understanding them. Played by J.D. Daniels; he's a defenseman who doesn't appear on the team after the first movie.
J.D. Daniels Today
Despite being in a large number of films and television episodes, Daniels's career has faltered. Aside from “The Mighty Ducks,” he was also in “The Swan Princess,” “The Pickle,” and “Going Places,” all before 1995.
He did a few voices in “Gargoyles,” “Beethoven,” and the Aladdin animated series. At the end of the millennium, he started to slow down, but he still had a few roles, including in “Superheroes” in 2007 and in “Little New York” in 2009. He actually won a 1993 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Featured Actor in a Play for “Conversations with My Father.”
Kathryn Erbe as Michelle McKay
The duck's tutor, Michelle Mckay plays an important role in the second film installment. She intervenes to make sure that the Ducks don't fall behind on their school work. Mckay also bravely confronts Coach Bombay about his Hollywood antics that have led him to neglect his team.
Mckay even steps in as assistant coach to make up for Bombay's bad behavior! It's safe to say that without Mckay, the Mighty Ducks may not have been singing "We are the Champions" at the end of the film.
Kathryn Erbe Today
Kathryn Erbe's career continued to flourish in film, television, and even the theatre! You're likely to have spotted her in the popular television series "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." She starred as Detective Alex Eames for a marathon of 10 years.
Since then she has appeared as Anne in the Broadway production of "The Father." Erbe has also landed roles in several television shows including "The Good Fight," "City on a Hill," and "The Blacklist." Go Kathryn go!
Garette Ratliff Henson as Guy Germaine
You can definitely call Garette a triple threat! He appeared in all three Mighty Ducks films as Guy Germaine. Germaine was a valued player on the team known for his offensive skills on the ice.
However, Germaine did suffer a formidable fumble in the final film which led to him having to sit out the second half of the game. His character had a romantic end as he and Connie eventually married!
Garette Ratliff Henson Today
While Henson is most well known for his Mighty Ducks affiliation, he also appeared in several other films including "Casper' alongside Christina Ricci.
Henson is most certainly a film-lover as he went on to study film, and receive an MFA in the subject from Columbia University. These days he spends his time as a devoted husband and father! Henson has recently stepped back into Germaine's skates to reprise his role in the Mighty Ducks reboot.
Justin Wong as Ken Wu
It seems a bit unfair to have a former Olympian on your team, but Ken Wu was a figure skater, not a hockey player. Like Tammy Duncan in the first film, he dazzles opposing teams with his acrobatic skills and is able to set up shots.
He uses his small size to maneuver around defenses and trick goalies into giving him an opening. His small size also makes him more vulnerable to defenders. Played by Justin Wong, he makes his first appearance in “D2.” In “D3,” he is picked on by the varsity team and tries to learn how to talk smack from Russ Tyler.
Justin Wong Today
The majority of Wong's acting resume is related to “The Mighty Ducks.” In addition to “D2” and “D3,” he also made an appearance in “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.” He had a few other credits to his name as well: Danny in an episode of “Millennium” and as a few different roles in “The Odyssey.”
He got extra schooling at the Centre for Digital Imaging and Sound and at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, where he finished his degree in Sound Technology. Since 2009, he has worked as a live sound engineer. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Jeffrey Nordling as Ted Orion
A to-the-point coach unlike Bombay, the JV team at Eden Hall, had problems adjusting to Ted Orion. Orion originally played in the National Hockey League for the Minnesota North Stars but chose to leave professional hockey to take care of her daughter, who had been rendered paraplegic in a car accident.
It takes some time for the team to warm up to their new coach, but after he defends them against the school, they all start to follow his coaching and teaching a little better. He at first seems like a jerk, but how well he treats his daughter proves that he has a heart, too.
Jeffrey Nordling Today
Nordling was an established actor before joining this movie series. His first role was as Tim Rourke in “Working Girl,” and before he appeared as Coach Orion, he was in “Ruby,” “Holy Matrimony,” “Quiz Show,” and more. After “D3,” he was in ten movies, with the most well-known likely being “Tron: Legacy.”
He's also been in a boatload of TV movies and television shows – he's one of those actors that has been in one episode of almost every show since he started acting, from “Criminal Minds” and “Nashville” to “Arrow” and “Shark.” He also had a role in “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare,” which came out in 2016.
The Real Mighty Ducks
While they don't use the uniforms, and they dropped the “Mighty” from the title, the Anaheim Ducks did get their name from this hockey trilogy. In fact, Disney was the company that founded the team, though they sold the team in 2005. The team has achieved reasonable success, having qualified to play in the Stanley Cup playoffs fourteen times, won six Pacific Division titles, two Western Conference championships, and one Stanley Cup (for the 2006-2007 season).
It's amusing that, given the theme of the movies that the team has sometimes been known as being relentlessly physical. They once got Estevez as Bombay to make a hype-up video for them.
Following the Leader
The surprising success of “The Mighty Ducks” gave rise to a slew of movies that focus on kids' sports and their adult managers. Examples of these include “Little Giants,” “Little Big League,” “Rookie of the Year,” and perhaps the most famous, “The Sandlot.” It turns out that “The Mighty Ducks” was following its own leader, “The Bad News Bears.”
The scriptwriter for “Ducks,” Steven Brill, said that he loved “The Bad News Bears” and wanted to create a hockey version since it was his favorite sport. These movies often have the teams start as underdogs, though grow into winners in one manner or another.
There are a number of things that could have happened in the movies that did not – the original script was about a teen moving from Minnesota to Los Angeles and starting a hockey team there. The original script was also much darker and adult-themed. Of course, once Disney picked it up, they chose to tone down the adult elements and introduce more comedic scenes with the kids.
While it's all too possible that the movie could have been successful had the adult elements remained, the comedic and child-friendly tone of the movie no doubt helped it become one of the highest-earning movies of 1992.
Charlie Sheen was given the opportunity to play the role of Gordon Bombay but turned it down. His brother Emilio instead appeared. Bill Murray was interested but was deemed too old for the role. Other candidates include Chevy Chase, Tom Cruise, Michael J. Fox, and Tom Hanks. Leonardo DiCaprio auditioned for Charlie, and Jake Gyllenhaal was the first choice for the character, but his parents wouldn't let him move to Minneapolis for filming.
Juliette Lewis auditioned for Connie. Vincent LaRusso was originally considered for McGill and Lawson, but the actor who was originally hired for Banks (his name has never been revealed) bullied another cast member and was fired. The producers then gave LaRusso the role.
Hey...You Look Familiar
Actor Jack White appears in all three films, though in two different roles. In the first two films, he was a referee, but in “D3,” he was Coach Wilson, the coach of Eden Hall's Varsity team. White has actually been involved in many films that have to do with hockey and is what IMDB calls a “hockey technical advisor” – essentially someone that makes sure the details are right.
Scott Whyte plays two different characters in “D2” and “D3.” Screenwriter Steven Brill plays a different minor role in each film, and in “D3,” the members of the varsity team are acted by the same ones who played the Hawks in the first film.
It's From the Nineties All Right
No one who watches any three of the films will think it was filmed at any other period, and not just because of hairstyles and clothing choices, too. The choice of including “Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch locks the first film in the time period so hard it can practically cause whiplash.
There are also two real hockey teams mentioned that have changed – the Minnesota North Stars moved to Dallas in 1993, replaced by the Wild in 2000, while the Hartford Whalers became the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997. Dwayne Robertson actually mentions the North Stars moving to Texas.
The Revival Series
Beginning in 2021, the sequel series is available on Disney Plus. “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” takes place in the modern-day, with Estevez reprising his role as Coach Bombay. The Ducks have become an ultra-competitive powerhouse team focused entirely on winning. Bombay steps in to help coach a child that has been cut by the Ducks.
Estevez starts another youth hockey team, gaining players and getting back to his roots. We're not going to give anything away, but the big conflict is the new team – the “Don't Bothers” – against Bombay's old team. Unfortunately, the new team has little more than a wing and a prayer.
Old and New Faces on the Ice
The first season of the reboot reunited fan-favorite characters such as Coach Bombay (played by Emilio Estevez), Connie Moreau (played by Marguerite Moreau), and Guy Germaine (played by Garette Ratliff Henson).
Mighty Ducks fans were also introduced to some fresh faces including Alex Morrow (played by Lauren Graham of "Gilmore Girls" fame) and Evan Morrow (played by Brady Noon). It was sadly announced that Charlie Conway (played by Joshua Jackson) wouldn't be returning to the reboot and that Estevez wouldn't be returning for the second season.
Coach Bombay's Replacement
Attempting to fill the rather large skates left behind by Coach Bombay (played by Emilio Estevez) is Coach Gavin Cole (played by Josh Duhamel).
As a former NFL coach, we're excited to see the diverse skillset that Coach Cole will bring to the Mighty Ducks. There's no doubt that season 2 will be fresh and exciting!
