Philadelphia hockey just got more to work with down on the farm.
The Philadelphia Flyers agreed Monday on a contract with the Quad City Mallards of the International Hockey League that made the Mallards the latest Flyers minor league affiliate for the 2009-10 season, Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren said.
With the new agreement, the Flyers can send players back and forth between the two organizations whenever they want throughout the 09-10 season.
“The Flyers are pleased to add Quad City as one of our affiliates,” Holmgren said. “The Mallards have a great tradition of success in their market on and off the ice, and we look forward to a great working relationship.”
No idea where the Quad Cities are? The Mallards are based in Moline, Ill.
