Could this really be the end of hockey in the Quad Cities? Don't get too excited. There is still a chance.

According to OurQuadCities.com, the chance to have hockey in the Quad Cities in some capacity isn't dead just yet. This weekend at the TaxSlayer Center, the Mallards will play what could be their final game ever, and fans are asked to visit the TaxSlayer Center Box Office to place a fully refundable $25 deposit per seat. There will also be a sign-up table on the concourse at the April 6 and 7 Quad City Mallards games.

The good news is that Scott Mullen, arena executive director, and former Mallards owner Howard Cornfield will be holding a "town hall meeting" soon to address hockey in the Quad Cities. We will keep you up-to-date on the process of possibly bringing hockey to the Quad Cities.
