Ducks to reveal new 3rd jersey in October

Mark it down in your calendars, Anaheim Ducks fans. The team announced Monday they would reveal their new alternate jersey for the 2015-16 NHL season on October 16 at home against the Colorado Avalanche.

The new alternate jersey will be the sixth in franchise history. Whether we can expect the return of a classic Mighty Ducks look remains unknown.

As we await the big reveal, we looked back on some of the (Mighty) Ducks most memorable looks.
