An answer to one pressing Quad-City Mallards question could be in the offing.

Mallards owner Chris Lencheski on Tuesday confirmed a decision on what league the team will call home should come within hours rather than days and said what were three options - the ECHL, the Central Hockey League or a return to the International Hockey League - now are two.

Beyond that, he declined comment.

"I cannot speak about any specifics with various leagues that have been under consideration," he said. "But I will tell you that the weather report is bright and sunny, and it gets sunnier every day."
