Rimmer Jersey Draws $6,500 High Bid

MOLINE, Ill. (March 8, 2014) – The Quad City Mallards tonight teamed with the Genesis Health Services Foundation and KWQC TV6 to raise $29,700 for the Genesis Outpatient Rehabilitation through a game-worn jersey auction after the Mallards’ game against the Arizona Sundogs at the iWireless Center.

The popular special edition orange third jerseys jerseys worn by the Mallards for the final time tonight in their 3-0 win over the Sundogs went up for bid in a live auction immediately following the contest, which was watched by a crowd of 5,513.  The jersey of goaltender Ty Rimmer went for the evening’s high bid of $6,500.

Over the last 19 years, Mallards jersey auctions have raised well over $700,000 to benefit Genesis Health System charities.  Tonight’s auction is the second of two the Mallards have held this season to raise a total of $48,300 for Genesis Health System charities.  After the Mallards’ January 11 meeting with the Sundogs, bidding on game-worn affiliate jerseys raised $18,600 for the Genesis Flu-Free QC program.

MOLINE, Ill. (March 8, 2014) – Ty Rimmer made 32 saves and Gergo Nagy, Mike Stinziani and Jordan Mayer all scored as the host Quad City Mallards blanked the Arizona Sundogs 3-0 Saturday night in front of a crowd of 5,513.  With the win the Mallards (28-18-8, 64 points) moved into a fifth place tie with the idle Brampton Beast and completed a two-game weekend sweep of the eighth place Sundogs (26-26-6, 58 points).

Nagy gave the Mallards the lead just one minute and eight seconds into the game by burying Matt Boyd’s centering pass.  Stinziani- who also had an assist- stretched the advantage to 2-0 at 4:35 of the first period with a shorthanded breakaway goal.

The gap widened to three when Mayer scored his first career goal in the second period of his second professional game.   Mayer finished off a 2-on-1 rush by sweeping home Jeff Lee’s goalmouth feed at 9:14 of the second.

Rimmer was at his busiest in the second period, stopping 15 Arizona shots the middle frame and making a series of fine saves before Mayer scored to keep the Sundogs from cutting the Mallard lead to one.
