Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E program

In 2005, the Anaheim Ducks started being active in the Hispanic Community locally. Which created S.C.O.R.E.

S.C.O.R.E.stands for Scholastic Curriculum Of Recreation & Education. Which is a program that helps Hispanic students through the use of the sport of hockey to gain:

  • Educational themes
  • Encourage healthy and active living
  • Reinforce the importance of positive character building
  • Reward youth for their dedication of pursuing academic excellence.

In addition to the Ducks’ announcers that night, San Francisco Giants’ broadcaster, Erwin Higueros was the Spanish language play by play voice. As well as, San Francisco 49ers’ Jesus Zarate was the color analyst broadcaster. The game was then live-streamed on http://AnaheimDucks.com and the Duck app.

Equally important, all fans in attendance got a free “Sugar Skull” themed Wild Wing troll doll courtesy of Chick-FILA.

Of Course, there was still a game…

Even though the Ducks came up empty on four power-play opportunities, they struck first. Jakob Silfverberg finished off an impressive sequence that ended with him going top shelf on Jacob Markstrom in the first period. Adam Gaudette (VAN) scored in the third, that tied game going to OT. In addition, the warm-up pucks where themed DIA DE LOS MUERTOS.
