The Cast Of The Mighty Ducks: Then And Now

Published

on

It’s been over 25 long years since Disney’s The Mighty Ducks first hit the big screen. Ever wonder what a couple of decades has done to that loveable band of misfits? Of course, you did. Read on to see how the Ducks are looking after all these years.

Charlie Conway (Joshua Jackson)

The captain of the Ducks has grown up to be quite dashing in adulthood. The role of Charlie Conway put Joshua Jackson on the map, and he has gone on to have an impressive acting career. He starred in the mega-hit Dawson’s Creek as Pacey Witter, as well as J.J. Abrams’ Fringe as Peter Bishop.

Brace yourselves, fellas — Connie has grown up to be quite the head-turner!

Connie Moreau (Marguerite Moreau)

Who could forget the Velvet Hammer? The perfect blend of elegance and toughness, the diplomatic Connie Moreau was a force to be reckoned with on the ice. Marguerite Moreau went on to find success with the cult-classic Wet Hot American Summer. Lately, it seems Moreau has focused on her television career, with appearances on SmallvilleLostThe O.C., and more.

You didn’t think we forgot about the coach, did you? Up next we check in on the Ducks’ play-caller.

Coach Bombay (Emilio Estevez)

Everyone’s favorite alcoholic-lawyer-turned-hockey-coach has definitely aged gracefully. Emilio Estevez has kept busy since The Mighty Ducks. He has acted in, directed, and written a number of films. It would be hard to argue that any of his roles were as memorable as that of Coach Gordon Bombay, however.

Keep reading to see how the flatulent goalie of the Ducks has started down a life of crime.

Goldberg (Shaun Weiss)

Oh dear. It looks like Coach Bombay may need to have a little talk with his old goalkeeper. Shaun Weiss, who played Goldberg, has found a degree of acting success in his post-Mighty Ducks life. Sadly, Weiss has had run-ins with the law. He was arrested for drug possession in 2017 shortly after being released from jail for petty theft.

Boy, that was a bummer. Perhaps we can lighten the mood by taking a peek at a modern-day Averman.

Lester Averman (Matt Doherty)

No children’s sports comedy film is complete without a wisecracking goofball. Enter Lester Averman. Whether he was commentating the play of his teammates or out on the ice getting knocked around by larger opponents, Averman was entertaining. Unfortunately, as is often the case for child actors cast as goofballs, acting success has eluded Matt Doherty as an adult. He has made guest appearances on shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Bones, however. In any case, the man was in both Home Alone and the Mighty Ducks franchise, so he has entertained millions of people, and that can’t be taken away from him.
