    BRAMPTON, Ont. (February 23, 2015) – Chad Painchaud ripped off a hat trick and added an assist as the host Brampton Beast (17-32-2) defeated the Quad City Mallards (26-20-6) 5-2 Monday.

    The Beast took control by scoring three second period goals- including two in just nine seconds.  Painchaud kick-started the Brampton onslaught by pouncing on a rebound to even the score at two just a minute and eight seconds into the second.  At 6:32 Painchaud scored the tie-breaker from the slot. Mere moments later, at 6:41, Justin Donati- who also had three assists- rifled in the fourth Brampton goal from the right wing circle.

    Painchaud completed his hat trick by burying the Beast's fourth unanswered goal for the doorstep at 6:08 of the third period.

    The Beast had first jumped in front with Mike MacIsaac's tip-in just 34 seconds into the game.  The Mallards were shorthanded when Justin Fox tied the game at one by backhanding Mario Lamoureux's centering pass home at 4:56 of the first.  Logan Nelson converted Jeff Lee's centering feed to break the deadlock at 17:08 of the opening frame, but it was the Beast who would come roaring back in the second period.

    The Mallards next play at home Wednesday evening at 7:05 p.m. against the Allen Americans.  Fans can purchase four tickets to each Mallards Wednesday home game this season for just $20.  In addition, after each Wednesday home contest, fans can join the Mallards at T.G.I. Friday’s on River Drive in Moline- adjacent to the iWireless Center- for a postgame party.

    Tickets for all remaining Mallards regular season home games- including Wednesday's tilt- are on sale now at the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.  The box office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and game days from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the second period.  Tickets are available for $10, $16, $20 and $28.

    Minor League Baseball Fans Enjoying the Gameday Experience, According to National Study PDF Print E-mail
    News Releases - Sports & Recreation
    Written by Jeff Lantz and Marco LaNave   
    Tuesday, 17 February 2015 16:13

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A nationwide study conducted by independent research company Turnkey Intelligence revealed Minor League Baseball fans are extremely satisfied with their at-event experience. More than 20,000 MiLB game attendees were surveyed, and collectively gave the Minor League Baseball gameday experience a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 58, positioning the league on par with other highly recognizable brands, including the National Football League (NFL), Amazon.com, Westin Hotels & Resorts, Pandora Internet Radio and Discover Card.

    NPS, introduced by Fred Reichheld, Bain & Company and Satmetrix in 2003, is a loyalty metric system that identifies customers as brand “promoters,” “passives” and “detractors” based on their likelihood to recommend a particular brand. Scores range from -100 to 100, with higher scores indicating stronger brands.

    Turnkey’s Surveyor Network, officially launched in May 2014, was used to conduct this study, which focused on the experiences of both single game and season ticket buyers. More than 150 collegiate and professional sports properties participated in the study, including teams from Major League Soccer (MLS), Major League Baseball (MLB) and NCAA FBS programs. More than 40 Minor League Baseball teams from eight of its 15 leagues participated in the study.

    “With comparative metrics in easy-to-read dashboards, this study was actionable for each participating MiLB club,” said Len Perna, President and CEO of Turnkey Sports & Entertainment. “Our Surveyor Network is the only way to compare fan satisfaction metrics across multiple properties and leagues. It’s the only way to really know where you stand with your customers.”

    Further solidifying the results of the study and the Minor League Baseball experience, the league announced its overall attendance at 42.4 million in 2014, the third highest in the organization’s 114-year history. The milestone also marked the 10th consecutive year the organization drew an excess of 41 million fans across its 176 teams and 15 leagues.

    “Our teams put tremendous effort into guaranteeing a fun, family-friendly experience at every single one of our games and events,” said Michael Hand, Minor League Baseball Chief Marketing Officer and President of MiLB Enterprises. “It’s gratifying to see that our efforts are being recognized by our fans.”

    Quad City Blues High School Hockey team raises $9,138.97 for Genesis Health System PDF Print E-mail
    News Releases - Sports & Recreation
    Written by Linda Andry   
    Tuesday, 17 February 2015 14:19

    The Quad City Blues High School Hockey team held their 5th annual benefit hockey game in conjunction with Genesis Health System on January 25th at the River’s Edge in Davenport.   This year’s theme for the event was “SLASH MS”.  This is a cause that is near and dear to the player’s hearts as their head coach, Shane Lovdahl, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis this past year.  The event consisted of a jersey auction, silent auction, raffle baskets, bake sale, and of course, a good old hockey game between the Quad City Blues and the Cedar Rapids Roughriders.

    The Quad City Blues consists of 33 players from local area high schools from both sides of the river; Alleman, Assumption, Bettendorf, Central DeWitt, Davenport Central, Davenport North, Davenport West, Moline, North Scott, Pleasant Valley, Riverdale, Rivermont Collegiate, and United Township.

    The team participates in the Mid-West High School Hockey League which includes teams from Kansas City, Lincoln, Omaha, Sioux City, Ames, Des Moines, Mason City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Dubuque.  Games are played from November to February with a final year end tournament in early March.

    Former head coach, Nick White, initiated the first benefit game in 2010 in conjunction with Genesis to raise awareness for various causes.  Pink at the Rink, The Beat Goes On, 5-4 Fighting Diabetes, and Stick it to Cancer have raised over $34,000 prior to this year’s event, SLASH MS.  The growth and success of these events are a direct result of the hard work and dedication of the Quad City Blues players and parents as well as the generous help of their title sponsor Genesis Health System.  This past Friday (February 13th), the Quad City Blues presented a check for $9,138.97 to Ken Croken, Vice President, Corporate Communications, Marketing and Advocacy of Genesis Health System, representing this year’s proceeds from the event.

    The event in January concluded with a 6-3 victory by the Blues over Cedar Rapids!
