Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When the Flying V is broken up by Iceland in the finals, the announcer says "a four-on-none break for Iceland" when five players are clearly visible.
At the end of the movie we see a flying "v" of a flock of birds. The birds flying are actually geese although you can hear ducks quacking.

Character error 

When The Ducks play the first game against Iceland, they call Adam, Captain Adam Banks, but Adam isn't the team captain, Charlie is.

Continuity 

During the game where Bombay comes back and apologizes, the team performs the Flying V and the announcer says he has never seen the Flying V before, when in fact he is the same announcer that saw the Flying V during the team's last game in the first movie.
In the game when Ms. MacKay is coaching, they show a shot of the game, and you can clearly see Charlie, Number 96, playing in the game. When they cut back to the bench, Charlie is next to Ms. McKay, telling her how to call a line switch.
In the first game against Iceland, when Fulton takes his shot, the puck goalie clearly catches the puck in the netting of his glove, but when he takes off the glove, a bruise appears on his palm.
Many time during the hockey games, players go off the bench, but no-one comes on the bench in their place, putting too many players on the ice.
When Tibbles is handing out jerseys he gives Coach Bombay Mendoza's jersey. Then Mendoza gets the Mendoza jersey.
Nearing the end of the second period of Team USA's first game against Iceland, the score is shown at 5-0. Iceland scores one more goal before the period ends. Then at what is intended to be the start of the third period the scoreboard shows the a 4-0 score and that it is the start of the second period. shows a score of 4-0.
When Bombay burns the cardboard cutout, Banks is wearing a sling even though it isn't until a little later that Bombay discovers he is injured.
In the first game scene against Trinidad and Tobago, the camera pans across the registration area by the ice. We hear the announcer talking about the game, and he says the score is 6-0, but the score board seen above the ice reads 7-0.
When Coach Bombay is scolding the team and Mr.Tibbles is jumping in with his whistle, Adam Banks moves from out of the team line to in the line to out the line again.

On the Duck's third goal in the finals versus Iceland, the announcer says Wu's name as he passes and they score. In the next scene showing the bench, Wu is clearly shown cheering.

Right when the camera is zooming in on the Trinidad game you can hear the announcer say the score is "six to nothing" but if you look at the scoreboard, it says seven to nothing. The announcer is actually correct. During the game Team U.S.A. scores three times and the final score is 9-2. If the score had been seven at the start the score would have been 10-2.

When Adam gets injured by Sanderson after scoring in the first game against Iceland, it cuts to the USA bench where the players, including Connie, stand up and complain. In the next shot, she is seen on the ice with Charlie, Guy, and Jesse fighting off Sanderson.

Errors in geography 

Adam says he is from Edina, which is a suburb of Minneapolis. In the first movie, his address is mentioned as 450 N. Hennepin Avenue. In reality, Hennepin Avenue is in Minneapolis proper is does not extend into Edina, so Adam would have to have moved between the two movies for this to make sense. (This is also doubtful, as he is derisively called "cake-eater" in both movies; cake-eater is often used disparagingly in the Twin Cities for residents of the affluent Edina.)

Factual errors 

When Fulton is taking his shot in the final shootout, he stops and then shoots the puck. In hockey, you are not allowed to stop while taking a penalty shot and the puck must always be moving forward or else the shot is over.
Icelandic last names are very simple, consisting of the father's name plus either "sson" if the child is a boy, or "dottir" if the child is a girl, but almost none of the Icelandic skaters have last names that could actually exist in the Icelandic language
In the games between USA and Iceland, both teams are wearing dark jerseys. In hockey, one team always wears dark (blue, black, green, etc), while the other wears white.
Numerous times during the film, the Duck players are on the bench without helmets. At this age, helmets would have been required to remain on at all times, or the team receives a bench minor penalty.
A few players throughout the movie are shown shooting ambidextrously: meaning they shoot both right-side and left-side. Unlike switch-hitters in baseball hockey players either shoot left-side or right-side, but never both.
When Luis Mendoza scores in the last period, after he stops and snowplows the goalie in the face, you can see that his foot is in the crease. If the teams were playing under standard rules the goal wouldn't have counted.
Wu mentions that he can do a triple arial, in figure skating there is no jump named "an arial".
During the final game against Iceland, Russ Tyler is being pinned against the boards by three Iceland players. The next shot shows three other players on the open ice, then the three on Russ again. Each team can only have five players on the ice at a time use goalie.
When team U.S.A play the Italian national team, the Italians are wearing a green uniform, when in fact the Italian ice hockey team's jersey and national color is actually blue.
There is no such shot in hockey called the "knuckle-puck." It's impossible to shoot the puck the same way when performing a slap shot and have the puck spin the same way Russ Tyler makes it spin in the movie.

Miscellaneous 

After the US team changes their jerseys in the final game, Fulton Reed's jersey says "Fulton" instead of "Reed"
At the start of the period were the ducks have changed uniforms if you look closely at the clock it reads 00:00 with no score but a few seconds later you see time on the clock with the scores back up.

Revealing mistakes 

When Adam Banks comes into the locker room before the big Iceland game and tells Coach Bombay "I woke up and the pain was gone," you can see Connie mouthing his lines behind him.
Throughout the sold out game at the Anaheim Pond there are numerous empty seats in the upper level and many cardboard cut-outs in the crowd. They don't move and their faces are pure white, they are very easy to see.
When Team USA become Ducks USA all the players get new jerseys with their last names on the back, with the exception of Fulton Reed: the name on the back of his shirt is "Fulton".
When the Olympia (a Zamboni knock-off) crashes into the rink, the smoke rising from the bottom is coming from a very, very visible smoke machine.

The newspaper article that reveals the result of the USA/Trinidad match contains three repeated paragraphs of text about disputes in planning applications, not a review of the match.

In the shootout scene, with the score 3-3, Adam Banks is closing in on the goalie to make a shot. He makes two dekes and you can see the player go to make a third. He misses bringing the puck back for a third deke, but shoots it in the goal anyway.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

At the end of the third period in the second game against Iceland, Russ Tyler is revealed as the goalie in a switch with Goldberg when he takes off his helmet. However, in youth hockey, regardless of whether in the US or international, he would never have been allowed to take his helmet off on the ice.
