The University of Oregon men's ice hockey team is an American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Division 1 club that currently skates as an independent. The Ducks have competitively battled on the ice since 1989 and are a student-run, student-focused organization supported primarily by member dues as well as donations. The team is led by Head Coach Kyler Moore, Assistant Coach Adam Gardner and General Manager, Craig Thornton.
Over the years, the team has excelled at the ACHA Division 2 level, winning several PAC-8 Championships. Including back to back in 2008, 2009 and 2019 and 2020. The continued success paid dividends in the fall of 2021, when the ACHA awarded the Ducks Division 1 status, beginning in the 2022-2023 season. The club submitted plans for a 1400 sq.ft locker room to be constructed in the Fall of 2022 at the Rink Exchange.
The Rink Exchange (the Ducks home ice) is located at the Lane County fairgrounds in Eugene, Ore. just 1.5 miles from the main Oregon campus. The season runs from the beginning of October to the end of February, and games are typically Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:00pm.
