History[edit]

Jr. Flames logo

The team previously played at The River's Edge Ice Arena in Davenport, Iowa where it was known as the Quad City Express and the Quad City Jr. Flames. In May 2013, the team announced that the Quad City Jr. Flames were granted approval by the NA3HL Board of Governors and the USA Hockey Junior Council to relocate to Madison, Wisconsin for the 2013–14 season and play out of Hartmeyer Ice Arena.[1] The team began playing out of the Oregon Ice Arena in nearby Oregon, Wisconsin in the 2015–16 season.

The players, ages 16–20, carried amateur status under Junior A guidelines and would hope to earn a spot on higher levels of junior ice hockey in the United States and Canada, Canadian Major Junior, Collegiate, and eventually professional teams.[2][3]
