The Quad City Mallards players are doing well on the ice and off the ice too.
"It's kind of a neat, unique program where the guys are at the same schools every month and they enjoy it, they're excited to get out to the schools. And the kids have been phenomenal too," said Bob McNamara, President of the Q.C. Mallards.
Partnering with United Way, players go in groups of three to local schools.
There they mentor the kids, including reading, and teaching math to them.
