Defenseman Guillaume Gelinas has been reassigned to the Quad City Malllards by the American Hockey League’s Iowa Wild, while defenseman Austin Coldwell has been released from a professional tryout agreement by Iowa and has returned to the Mallards, the Mallards announced today.

Gelinas was recalled by Iowa Sunday while Coldwell signed a PTO with the Wild yesterday. Both blue liners skated in the Wild’s 2-1 loss to the San Antonio Rampage last night. Coldwell made his AHL debut in that game while Gelinas made his first AHL appearance this season.

Gelinas, who has scored five goals and notched 12 assists in 25 games with the Mallards this season, is tied for tenth among ECHL defensemen with 17 points. Coldwell has scored three goals and added five assists for eight points in 21 games with the Mallards.

The Mallards next play at home Saturday night at 7:05 p.m. against the Indy Fuel. The Mallards will welcome the Stanley Cup to Saturday's game. Fans will have the chance to view and take photos with hockey's ultimate prize throughout that contest. In addition, the first 1,500 fans through the doors Saturday are sure to have their holiday spirits lifted when they receive no-lose scratch cards, each and every one of which will reveal the recipient to be a prize winner. Fans attending Saturday’s game will also have the opportunity to take part in a “bad gift exchange”. Fans who bring their worst still-packaged Christmas gift to that game can exchange those deeply disappointing presents for another fan’s misfit gift or a voucher good for a ticket to a future game or a Mallards souvenir.
Single game tickets for all Mallards regular season home games- including Saturday night's game- are on sale now at the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster outlets, and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.
