Ducks, Burke Earn Top Honors at L.A. Sports Awards
The Anaheim Ducks’ Stanley Cup Championship was named the top sports moment of 2007 at the 3rd annual L.A. Sports Awards, presented by the Los Angeles Sports Council. In addition, Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Burke was named “Sports Executive of the Year” at the awards presentation held Sunday night at The Beverly Hilton and televised live by FSN PRIME TICKET.

By securing their first Stanley Cup championship in franchise history on June 6, 2007 at Honda Center, the Ducks also became the first team from California to win the Stanley Cup. Defeating the Ottawa Senators four games-to-one in the Stanley Cup Final, the Ducks were the first West Coast team to win the Cup since the 1925 Victoria Cougars and the first U.S. West Coast team to win it since the 1917 Seattle Metropolitans.

The Ducks posted a 16-5 record en route to the Stanley Cup last year, defeating Minnesota (4-1), Vancouver (4-1), Detroit (4-2) and Ottawa (4-1). Anaheim secured the Cup in only 21 games, tied for the fifth fastest run to the championship in NHL history since the best-of-seven series was implemented in 1987.

Burke earned his second Executive of the Year award in only his second season as Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Ducks. Burke, who shared the 2006 award with Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti, reshaped the 2006-07 Ducks into an aggressive, up-tempo hockey team built around speed and physical play that led to the Stanley Cup. Including their run to the 2006 Western Conference Finals, Burke has led the Ducks to six series wins in his two seasons in Anaheim. No other NHL team has won more than four series in that span.

Just five weeks after the 2006 Western Conference Finals, Burke swung a massive deal with the Edmonton Oilers, landing standout defenseman Chris Pronger. The Ducks opened the 2006-07 regular season by recording at least one standings point in each of their first 16 games (12-0-4), the longest streak in NHL history to begin a season. The Ducks went on to win their first-ever Pacific Division title, spending the final 72 games and 163 calendar days atop the division. For the second consecutive season, Anaheim broke club records in wins (48), standings points (110) and goals (254) in 2006-07.

The L.A. Sports Awards were created by the Los Angeles Sports Council in 2005 to recognize each year’s outstanding sports moments for the Los Angeles/Orange County area. For more information on the L.A. Sports Awards, please visit the Sports Council website at www.lasports.org.
