Mighty Ducks Reunion! Kenan Thompson and the Cast Hit an Ice Rink in Their Movie Hockey Gear
The whole flock is back together again!
On Sunday, one of the stars of the 1992 film The Mighty Ducks, Danny Tamberelli, 36, posted on Instagram about a recent reunion with a few members of the cast. The gang showed off bright green jerseys for the special outing — just like the ones they wore in the film. Tamberelli’s even had his character’s last name stitched on the back.
“What a sweet day!! Thanks to the @anaheimducks for a great day reliving my #mightyducks season with some old friends! Photo cred by my lovely wife @katelyndetweiler,” he wrote on Instagram while showing off the gear.
One of the more recognizable people in the group was Kenan Thompson, 40, who starred in the flick’s 1994 sequel, D2: The Mighty Ducks. He later joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2003, and he’s since become the variety show’s longest-running actor.
The pics and videos showed Thompson, Tamberelli and a few other familiar faces smiling as they attempted to skate and pass a puck around a rink in upstate New York.
“What a sweet day!!” Tamberelli wrote on Instagram before giving a shout out to the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, a pro hockey team that was started because of the popularity of the film franchise.

The Mighty Ducks also starred Emilio Estevez, now 56, who played a lawyer arrested for drunk driving and who’s sentenced to 500 hours of community service as punishment. His character, Gordon Bombay, has his own history with hockey, so he’s required to coach a kids’ team with very few resources.
Even though the movie was dinged by critics, it got two sequels and an animated TV series because it was such a hit with viewers. According to Esquire, it grossed some $50 million at the box office and $54 million in video rentals.
