MOLINE -- With Mike Hellyer and Thomas Frazee both going on the Injured Reserve list Tuesday, the Quad City Mallards signed Chris Greene as their replacement forward before Wednesday's showdown with CHL-leading Missouri.

The 28-year-old joins the Double-A Flock from the Single-A Southern Professional Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen. Greene was traded Tuesday to Peoria by the SPHL's Fayetteville FireAntz.

The eighth-year vet scored seven goals and 20 points in 35 games with Fayetteville. Greene also played three games this season, picking up one assist, for the Double-A ECHL's Evansville Icemen.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound New York native has spent the bulk of his career in the CHL. Greene has 34 goals and 100 assists in 345 CHL games with Arizona, Wichita, Denver and now-defunct Corpus Christi.
