Where Are They Now? The Cast of ‘The Mighty Ducks’ March 8, 2017

Have you ever wondered what your favorite group of misfit kid hockey players is up to now? Wonder no more. Because we found out for you. Check out the stars of "The Mighty Ducks" then and now...

Emilio Estevez Then

Walt Disney Pictures

Although Emilio Esetevez rose to fame as a member of the Brat Pack in the 1980s and is known for his early performances in "The Breakfast Club" and "The Outsiders," '90s kids know him best as Gordon Bombay, the lawyer-turned-youth-hockey-coach who takes a pack of misfit hockey players to Minnesota peewee victory in "The Mighty Ducks."

After he appeared in all three-franchise movies, Emilio continued acting, directing, writing, and producing, with his last credited title being "The Way."

Joshua Jackson Then

Walt Disney Pictures

Joshua landed one of the lead roles in "The Mighty Ducks" franchise when he was just 13 years old, playing the character of Charlie Conway, an aspiring hockey player with good morals and a good work ethic. Gordon also tried to bang his mom at one point, which didn’t really work out.

Jackson went on to play Pacey Witter on the iconic teen soap opera "Dawson’s Creek," and he appeared on television shows like "Fringe" and "The Mentalist." He was also nominated for a Genie Award for the film "One Week." He was in a relationship with German actress Diane Kruger for almost a decade before they split in 2016. 

Elden Henson Then

Walt Disney Pictures

Everyone knows actor Elden Henson as Fulton Reed, the badass street kid with the wicked slap shot, but you’ve probably seen him in a few other productions too...

The now 39-year old Henson has been in big-name movies, like "She’s All That," "Cast Away," "Lords of Dogtown," "The Butterfly Effect" and "The Hunger Games." He also played Foggy Nelson on Netflix's "Daredevil."

Shaun Weiss Then

Walt Disney Pictures

Ah, yes: Goldberg. The chubby goalie who actually was never really that great at his position until all of a sudden, during the time of one intermission, miraculously became the goalie the Ducks needed.

Marysville Police Department

Shaun Weiss has had a rough few years recently. In 2017 and 2018, he was arrested a few times and served a couple of short stints for crimes like petty theft, possession of a controlled substance (meth), and public intoxication. After his last arrest in 2018, Weiss said he was entering rehab.

Les Averman - the quirky, goofy dude with the glasses whose character basically *tried* to provide comic relief at all times (and mostly failed).

Although he is still a working actor, appearing on shows like CSI: Miami, and Bones and snagging a small role in Argo, the actor has had a pretty low-key profile over the years.

If you’ve ever called someone a cake-eater, you can thank Brandon’s Mighty Ducks character for seriously upping your insult game.

One thing we’ll never understand about this character is how he made what is equivalent to a junior Olympic team when he COULDN’T STOP. ‘Sup fundamentals 101!

 Since D2 and D3, Vitar made a few television appearances as a teen, but other than that, discontinued his acting career at an early age and became a firefighter.

Woo, woo, woo Kenny Wu! We all know Wong for his portrayal of Ken Wu, the figure skater-turned hockey player that joined the Ducks in D2. After also appearing in D3, the now-retired actor has kept a really, really low profile. 

Garette Ratliff Henson - Guy Germaine

Guy’s character appeared in all three movies and was legit the OG hipster of Minneapolis. He was one of the only members of the Ducks to have a steamy teen romance with one of his teammates, Connie Moreau.

The 38-year old actor hasn’t really been active in the biz after his Ducks days, although he did graduate from Boston University’s School of Management in 2000. He currently lives in Los Angeles, probably eating cake on his balcony overlooking the city.

Who else agrees that Julie should’ve been starting the entire time instead of Goldberg?

He majored in theater at UCLA, and has performed in productions like Rent and See What I Wanna See. He’s currently engaged to – get this – Idina Menzel.

Russ Tyler, the spunky, outspoken goalie from south LA, made movie headlines when his character invented something called “the knuckle puck,” which if you actually try to execute, will never work.

Kenan is probably the most recognizable and successful child actor to come out of The Mighty Ducks franchise and has been a cast member on SNL since 2003.
