The Quad City Storm blows into the TaxSlayer Center this weekend for the first time in three weeks to battle the first-place Huntsville Havoc on Friday and Saturday — the first matchup of the season between the teams.

The Storm has picked up points in nine of its last ten games and holds a league best 9-2-1 record on home ice. The team is third place overall in the Southern Professional Hockey League.

This weekend’s battle of top three teams will be highlighted by the home-ice debut of Storm forward Mason Krueger. The 25-year-old forward is a Bettendorf native who played youth hockey locally for the QCHA’s Quad City Ice Eagles and Quad City Blues. Krueger went on to play Division 1 NCAA hockey for Army at West Point and scored a goal and an assist in his lone game with the Storm this season.

QC Storm forward Mason Krueger, 25, is a Bettendorf native.

Friday night is back-to-school night and teachers, administrators and custodial staff get a free ticket when they show their school ID at the box office. Saturday night is Union Night and the final $1 beer night of the season.

Fans can get their tickets for this weekend’s games (which start at 7:10 p.m.) at QuadCityStorm.com or at the TaxSlayer Center box office, 1201 River Drive, Moline.
