Named in honor of the Mallards team that played in the United Hockey League from 1995 to 2007, the current Mallards debuted in 2009 in the International Hockey League before joining the CHL for the 2010-2011 season after the CHL and IHL merged.The Mallards play their home games at i Wireless Center in Moline, Illinois.

On May 11, 2011 the Mallards originally ceased operations due to a lack of funding, but almost a month later, Club 9 Sports, a consortium between Chicago-based investment bank Prometheus Capital Partners, LLC, management and consulting firm Tobacco Road Capitalists and sports management and marketing firm ScheerSports, Inc. (headed by former National Basketball Association general manager Carl Scheer) bought the team from former owner Eric Karls and announced the team would return for the 2011-12 Central Hockey League season

The original Mallards franchise played in the Quad Cities from the 1995-96 season through the 2006-07 season. Their first two seasons of existence were played in the Colonial Hockey League, which was reformed in 1997-98 as the United Hockey League (UHL). The Mallards were an overwhelming success in their first few years, with attendance figures that regularly topped 6,000 per game. Attendance peaked in the 1997-98 season at over 8500 fans per game, and while it declined, average attendance remained over 6,000 fans per game through the 2001-2002 season. It continued to drop, though, until it reached a low of 3,120 fans per game in the Mallards' final UHL season in 2006-07.

The Mallards franchise was historic in several ways. The team won three league championships and became the first hockey team in the minor or major leagues to record 5 straight seasons of 50 or more wins; the Mallards went on to achieve 7 straight 50+ win seasons. This feat landed the team a place in the hockey Hall of Fame. In 1996-97, the team's second year of existence, the Mallards won the Colonial Hockey League championship. The next year, they won the United Hockey League championship. After losing in the finals in 1998-99 and 1999-00, the Mallards won their third championship in the 2000-01 season.

In 2017, the Mallards signed a multi-year affiliation with the NHL expansion team, the Vegas Golden Knights, and their AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves, for the 2017-18 season ending their four-year affiliation with the Wild.
However, the Mallards would only play one season with the Golden Knights' affiliation as the team would cease operations. Owner Jordan Melville stated he was folding the team due to losing the passion for operating the team and losing about US$4 million since he became the sole owner in 2013. A new ownership group obtained a team in the Southern Professional Hockey League called the Quad City Storm to replace the Mallards at the TaxSlayer Center for the 2018-19 season.
