Quad City Mallards
On May 11, 2011 the Mallards originally ceased operations due to a lack of funding, but almost a month later, Club 9 Sports, a consortium between Chicago-based investment bank Prometheus Capital Partners, LLC, management and consulting firm Tobacco Road Capitalists and sports management and marketing firm ScheerSports, Inc. bought the team from former owner Eric Karls and announced the team would return for the 2011–12 Central Hockey League season.
The original Mallards franchise played in the Quad Cities from the 1995-96 season through the 2006-07 season. Their first two seasons of existence were played in the Colonial Hockey League, which was reformed in 1997-98 as the United Hockey League. The Mallards were an overwhelming success in their first few years, with attendance figures that regularly topped 6,000 per game. Attendance peaked in the 1997-98 season at over 8500 fans per game, and while it declined, average attendance remained over 6,000 fans per game through the 2001-2002 season. It continued to drop, though, until it reached a low of 3,120 fans per game in the Mallards' final UHL season in 2006-07.
