The Quad City Mallards were a professional ice hockey team competing in the AA level United Hockey League. The Mallards played their home games at The MARK of the Quad Cities in Moline, Illinois. Their team colors were forest green and burgundy. They won the Colonial Cup in 1997, 1998 and 2001, and the Tarry Cup in 1998, 2000, 2001 and 2002. The Mallards won 50 or more games in 6 consecutive seasons, from 1996-97 to 2001-02, a professional hockey record. They were also known for never having missed the playoffs in their years of existence.

The franchise that replaced them, the Quad City Flames, lasted two seasons before that team moved to Abbotsford, British Columbia in 2009.

It has been announced that the Quad City Mallards will return to the IHL in the 2009-2010 seaon. The IHL contains the Muskegon Lumberjacks, Port Huron Icehawks, Flint Generals, Dayton Gems, Bloomington Prarie Thunder, and current champion Fort Wayne Komets.
