My friend has a team that plays Wednesday nights at UTC. Not sure if they need any more skaters, but I can ask in case you're interested. They're a generally low key bunch and they usually have post-game beers on the top level of the UTC parking structure.

San Diego is a weird sports town since there's a ton of transplants. I know quite a number of northern California folks who came down here for college and settled. So naturally they're Shark fans. And then there are the natural Kings/Ducks transplants as well.

I know an inordinate amount of Canadians in the area. They even have an organization called Can Diego which does events.

One thing that handicaps the Ducks from getting any support in San Diego is simply the TV situation. I mentioned this to my friend who worked for the Ducks for a few years, but only a small percentage of households in San Diego get Fox Sports West 2 which is the primary carrier for Ducks games.

For the folks who have Center Ice, Duck games are blacked out with the assumption that we have FSW2. The only times I can watch a Ducks game is when they're not on FSW2 which maybe happens ten times a season.
