Five identical signs hang in the Anaheim Ducks’ dressing room at the Honda Center and at their practice arena. All are emblazoned with instructive and, at times, inspirational messages.
For example, No. 3—Play With Self-Disciplined Aggression - reads, in part: “Control emotions when playing aggressively or you will be controlled by opponents or situations (i.e. bad call, cheap shot).”
No. 5—Unselfishness Is Essential—reads: ” ... Teammates, staff and officials are to be treated with RESPECT!”
