'The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers' Casts Josh Duhamel In Season 2 After Emilio Estevez's Exit

Josh Duhamel is joining the cast of the upcoming second season of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers!

The 49-year-old actor is taking on the role of a former NHL star turned coach, following the late 2021 exit of Mighty Ducks star Emilio Estevez, THR reveals.

Get more details inside…

Josh will play Gavin Cole, “a former NHL player-turned-coach who is described as inspirational, charming and hardcore as he is big on the hockey metaphor that applies to life. He runs the super-intense summer hockey institute where the Mighty Ducks land for season two.”

If you didn’t know, Josh is no stranger to working with Disney. He previously has lent his voice to Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and most recently, he reprised his Love, Simon character in the second season of Hulu’s Love, Victor!

In case you forgot, back in November it was revealed that Emilio was leaving the show. While it was first reported that he may have left over the show’s vaccination policy or over creative differences.

A few days later, he opened up about his exit and shared that he is not anti-vax and him leaving the show was “due to a myriad of creative differences.”
