Not only will the Anaheim Ducks have the home opener of their 20th season tonight at the Honda Center, they will also debut their first major upgrade to the Honda Center in its 20-year existence.

The Grand Terrace Project was a $20 million expansion that built a 15,000-square foot indoor and outdoor entertainment space with plenty of bar space and outdoor fire pits. The plaza is flanked by two Daktronics screens measuring 15 feet by 25 feet.

Below the Terrace is the new team store that is "powered by Reebok", whatever that means.

The Ducks encourage fans to show up at 3:30 p.m. where they will have the players go through a red carpet to get in to the arena. The pregame player introductions begin at 6:45 p.m. and the puck is scheduled to drop at 7:00 p.m.

After surprising the league by getting a two-seed in the playoffs last season, the Ducks have jumped out to a 2-1 record on the road which featured an opening day 6-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche that looked worse than it actually was.
