The Quad City Mallards have signed defenseman Austin Coldwell, the Mallards announced today.  

Coldwell, 25, turns professional with the Mallards after completing his senior season at the University of Alaska-Anchorage last weekend.  The 6’ 0”, 189-pound Vancouver, Washington, native scored four goals and totaled 12 points in 34 games with the Seawolves this year.

Coldwell produced 14 goals and recorded 50 points in 132 career games at UAA and was twice named to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association All-Academic team.  Last year he helped UAA to the program’s first winning season since the Seawolves entered the Western Collegiate Hockey Association in 1993.

Coldwell spent four years in the junior ranks before heading to Anchorage.  He skated with the Bismarck Bobcats and Springfield Jr. Blues of the North American Hockey League before joining United States Hockey League’s Des Moines Buccaneers for a two year stint.
The Mallards return to action Saturday night at 7:05 p.m. against the Wichita Thunder on home ice.  The Mallards will wear special edition fan-designed jerseys in this Saturday night’s game and after the game those jerseys will go up for bid in a live auction to benefit the Genesis Health Services Foundation.  

Tickets for all remaining Mallards regular season home games- including Saturday 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.
