Here's What Happened To All Of The Child Actors From 'The Mighty Ducks'

The Mighty Ducks was a staple of '90s adolescence and a VHS rite of passage. Many who watched the movie as children drew inspiration from its lighthearted story. But now you might be wondering: What happened to the kids from The Mighty Ducks?

This Disney film was so popular, Disney founded a real hockey team named for it, the Anaheim Ducks. The film has a few plot holes, for sure, but the kid actors from The Mighty Ducks carried the movie past its weaknesses and into children's hearts everywhere. It's only natural to want to know where the actors from The Mighty Ducks are now. Plenty of child actors from '90s movies barely made it past that decade with their careers intact - and a few of the cast members from this film fared similarly - but overall, they have had positive experiences.

The Mighty Ducks are all grown up now. Some you'll barely recognize, and others you'll easily identify from their current careers on screen. Take a walk down memory lane and catch up with everyone's favorite hockey-playing misfits.

  • Charlie Conroy is the unofficial leader of the Mighty Ducks. At the beginning of the movie, Charlie is a shy kid. But as the need for leadership on the team grows, Charlie becomes more confident.

    By the end of the film, Charlie scores the winning goal in the final game.

  • Joshua Jackson starred as Charlie in each of the Mighty Ducks sequels. But he is probably better known for his role as Pacey Witter on the show Dawson's Creek. He also appeared in the 2006 movie Bobby, directed by his former "coach" Emilio Estevez.

    Fans of Jackson can also watch him in television dramas Fringe and The Affair.

  • Fulton Reed is the couldn't-care-less loner of the Mighty Ducks. But he does care quite a bit - he's just dealing with some teenage angst. After his insanely hard slap shot breaks the windshield of Coach Gordon's car, Fulton gets recruited to play for the Ducks.

    Fulton plays an essential role in the Ducks' success, but he keeps a quiet profile throughout the movie.

  • Fans can still catch Elden Henson on screen. He has a major role in the Netflix original series Daredevil. There, he plays Foggy Nelson, the best friend and legal partner of superhero Matt Murdock, AKA Daredevil.

    Fans may also have seen him in a minor - and similarly quiet - role in the Hunger Games franchise as the Avox cameraman, Pollux.

  • Character: George Goldberg

    A hockey team is nothing without its goalkeeper. The Ducks had a tough road ahead of them when they realized George was afraid of hockey pucks flying at him at the beginning of the film.

    But Coach Gordon works with George, and by the end of the movie, he's as mighty a goal defender as any of their opponents.

  • Played By: Shaun Weiss

    For years, it was hard to recognize Shaun Weiss if all you had to go off was his role in The Mighty Ducks. Unfortunately, the actor battled for years with methamphetamine and heroin addiction, even getting arrested on multiple occasions for possession and breaking and entering.

    With the help of efforts from his longtime friend and fellow actor Drew Gallagher, Weiss has been in recovery since 2020 and can be found performing once again.
