Seven Game Homestand Starts Tonight with Winning Wednesday Presented by T.G.I. Friday’s

$1 Dog/$1 Beer Night Presented by 97X Returns Friday

MOLINE, Ill. (February 25, 2014) – The Quad City Mallards this week will hit the ice for three home games featuring the return of Winning Wednesday presented by T.G.I. Friday’s and $1 Dog/$1 Beer Friday presented by 97X and culminating in a visit from Duck Dynasty’s Mountain Man this Saturday night courtesy of Genesis Health System.

Mountain Man will drop the puck for the ceremonial faceoff prior to Saturday night’s 7:05 p.m. game between the Mallards and Brampton Beast and will meet fans and sign autographs through the second period of that contest.

Mountain Man, whose real name is Tim Guraedy, is a neighbor of the Robertsons, the Louisiana family that has made a fortune from its best-selling duck calls and is the focus of Duck Dynasty.  Mountain Man is the only Duck Dynasty cast member who is not a Robertson family member or employee of Duck Commander.  He is a neighbor of the Robertsons who operates his own air-conditioning repair business and is known for speaking very slowly.

The Mallards will kick off a seven-game homestand tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m. with Winning Wednesday presented by T.G.I. Friday’s.  If the Mallards defeat the Missouri Mavericks tomorrow evening each fan in attendance will receive a free ticket to the Mallards’ next Wednesday game- March 5 again against the Mavericks.

At each Winning Wednesday game fans also have the opportunity to purchase $2 hot dogs and beer at iWireless Center concession stands.  After each Wednesday contest- including this week’s- fans are invited to join the Mallards for a post-game party at T.G.I. Friday’s adjacent to the iWireless Center at 1425 River Drive in Moline.

Fans planning on attending tomorrow night’s game can also save with the Harris Pizza Puck and Pizza Package.  With the Puck and Pizza Package, fans can purchase four lower level tickets for just $55 or four upper level seats only $45 for any Wednesday or Sunday home game and receive a certificate for a free large single topping pizza from Harris Pizza.  The Puck and Pizza Package is available at the iWireless Center box office.

This week also brings the penultimate $1 Dog/$1 Beer Night of the season when the Mallards take on the Beast at 7:05 p.m. Friday.  $1 hot dogs and $1 beers are available at iWireless Center concession stands during each of the Mallards’ 11 Friday night home games this season.  First intermission entertainment, will, courtesy of 97X, follow the hot dog-themed spirit of the evening.

The Mallards have also partnered with Metro, which provides earlier service on the Route 59 between Augustana College and downtown Moline during Friday home games this season.  The Route 59 will make one trip from campus to downtown Moline prior to the game (arriving at 5th Avenue and 15th Street at 6:30 p.m.) and will resume service from downtown to campus every 30 minutes from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.  Regular Metro fares are just $1 one-way or $2 round-trip.  As part of Metro’s unlimited ride program, Augustana riders can use their Augustana ID as their fare.  Visit or for more information.
