MOLINE, Ill. (October 8, 2013) – Fox Sports Radio 1230 WFXN-AM will again this season serve as the radio home of the Quad City Mallards, the Mallards announced today.
“We’re very excited about continuing our partnership with Fox Sports Radio 1230 for Mallards radio broadcasts. Fox Sports Radio 1230 has been an excellent partner over the last two years and we look forward to continuing to work together,” said Mallards president Bob McNamara. “We’re also very happy that our continuing relationship with Fox Sports Radio 1230 provides consistency for the fans of the Quad Cities area.”
The 2013-14 campaign will be Fox Sports Radio 1230’s third season as the Mallards’ game broadcast partner.
AM 1230 will broadcast the bulk of the Mallards’ 66 regular season games, beginning with the October 26 match-up between the Mallards and the St. Charles Chill. A limited number of Mallards games- including the Mallards’ October 19 season opener against the Rapid City Rush- will not be broadcast on 1230 AM but will air online at myqcmallards.com because of conflicts with University of Illinois basketball and football and Green Bay Packer football broadcasts.
The full Fox Sports Radio 1230 broadcast slate will be updated throughout the campaign and will be available at myqcmallards.com. Brian Lavelle again this season provides the call of Mallards action.
The October 19 opener will raise the curtain on the Mallards’ seventeenth season and the team’s fourth Central Hockey League campaign. Tickets for the season opener and all other Mallards regular season home games are now on sale at Ticketmaster outlets, through ticketmaster.com, through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000 or at the iWireless Center ticket office. The ticket office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and on game days from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the second period.

A proud affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild and the American Hockey League’s Iowa Wild, the Quad City Mallards are approaching their seventeenth season and their fourth in the Central Hockey League. One of the winningest teams in all of minor league hockey, the Mallards competed in the United Hockey League from 1995 through 2007 and in the International Hockey League in 2009-10. The Mallards’ proud history has seen them capture the UHL’s Colonial Cup Championship three times (1997, 1998, 2001) and secure that league’s Tarry Cup four times (1998, 2000, 2001, 2002) for the best overall regular season record. In 2001, the Mallards made professional hockey history, recording their sixth consecutive season with 50 or more wins, a feat that has yet to be matched.
