Prior to tonight’s game, the Ducks retired Paul Kariya’s No. 9 to join former teammate Teemu Selanne. In 606 career games with the Mighty Ducks, Kariya collected 300-369=669 points and remains the all-time franchise leader in points-per-game (1.10). Kariya continues to hold many franchise records, including most single-season goals by a left wing (50 in 1995-96), most single-season points by a left wing (108 in 1995-96), most single-season assists by a left wing (62 in 1998-99) and most career shorthanded points (21). Among all-time franchise leaders, Kariya co-leads in SHG (16), ranks second in PPG (107), third in goals and PPP (263), fourth in points, assists and GWG (44), and fifth in games. Kariya received numerous awards and honors during his career with the Mighty Ducks. Selected by Anaheim with the fourth overall pick in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Kariya was a two-time Lady Byng Memorial Trophy winner (1995-96 & 1996-97), a seven-time NHL All-Star (1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003), a three-time First Team All-Star (1995-96, 1996-97 & 1998-99), a two-time Second Team All-Star (1999-00, 2002-03) and a member of the 1994-95 All-Rookie Team.
