Quad City Mallards coach Terry Ruskowski has signed a contract extension, and could lead the team for 3 more seasons. That was the announcement today during the annual media day, as the team prepares for the new ECHL season that starts this weekend. 

This would have been the final year of his old contract, but he's agreed to continue coaching through the 2016-2017 season, with an option for one more after that.

For local hockey fans, the big day has finally arrived. The Quad City Mallards open the new season Friday night with a home game against Rapid City, at the I Wireless Center.

With just two weeks to go until the new season starts for the Quad City Mallards, preparations are still far from complete. Earlier this week, the Central Hockey League dissolved, and its seven teams, including the Quad Cities, joined the ECHL.
