Throwback Classic


The Anaheim Ducks have been hosting the annual President’s Day weekend Throwback Classic since 2010. The Throwback Classic Hockey Tournament has grown exponentially from 4 teams in the inaugural season to 100 teams in 2017. As one of the largest 5-on-5 ice hockey tournaments in North America, the Throwback Classic has hosted teams from 15 different states and three countries. 

The 2019 tournament will take place Presidents Day Weekend, February 15th-18th.

Tournament registration will close at the end of the day on December 31st, 2018.

New This Year

The 9th Annual Throwback Classic Adult Hockey Tournament will be made up of sixteen divisions, with no more than six teams in each division. This will allow for more competitive play and an increased chance at winning the championship. Games will be played at a Anaheim ICE, Lakewood ICE, Wesmister ICE, and the brand new ice facility- Great Park ICE! Finally, any team that registers as a team will be entered for a chance to play at the Honda Center with Anaheim Ducks Alumni. The winning team will be announced at the Throwback Classic Party on Saturday night.


The Throwback Classic is giving back to youth hockey. This year, proceeds from the Throwback Classic will go towards the Anaheim Ducks Foundation’s youth hockey programs. These youth hockey programs include Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E., Learn to Play, and Top Flight.

By competing in the 2019 Throwback Classic, you will be giving students, first-time hockey players, and participants with special needs the opportunity to learn the game.

The Anaheim Ducks Alumni will also be making a donation to the United Heroes League. The UHL has provided over $3 Million worth of free sports equipment, game tickets, and skill development camps to military families across the US & Canada.
