Forward Mario Lamoureux has returned to the Quad City Mallards from the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Mallards announced today. 

Lamoureux, 26, played two games and scored his first career AHL goal after signing a professional tryout agreement with the Sound Tigers last Wednesday.  Lamoureux scored last Friday night in Bridgeport’s 4-2 loss to the Portland Pirates.  The 5’ 9”, 185-pound Grand Forks, North Dakota, native has played five career AHL games- he skated in three games for the Oklahoma City Barons last season.  Lamoureux’s was the ninth AHL call-up for a Mallard this season. 

Lamoureux has scored 14 times and added 25 assists for 39 points while recording a plus/minus rating of +7 in 34 games since joining the Mallards in a trade with the Ontario Reign just after the start of the season. 

The Mallards return to action at home Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m. against the Wichita Thunder.  Fans can get four tickets to Mallards Wednesday night home games for just $20.  After each Wednesday night home tilt, fans can join the Mallards at T.G.I. Friday's in Moline for a postgame party.

Tickets for all remaining Mallards regular season home games- including Wednesday night’s contest- are on sale now at the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster outlets, and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.  The box office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and game days from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the second period.  Tickets are available for $10, $16, $20 and $28.
