WELCOME TO THE
The Huntington Center is a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose arena located in the heart of downtown Toledo. The facility opened to the public in October 2009.
The Huntington Center is easy to get to, and easy to get around in. Handicap seating and elevator access are available.
Every one of the 7,000+ seats at the Huntington Center is comfortably plush and each one offers incredible sightlines to the ice.
There are dozens of clean and inviting restrooms, a wide array of food and beverage stands, two souvenir stores and a massive video board display. The club level features a full service bar and common area for socializing before, during or after the game!
FUN FOR ALL AGES
Walleye games are fun for everyone!
Walleye games are for moms, so they can bring their kids to someplace safe. And comfortable. They're for dads, with seats close to the action. They're for grandparents, too, who love spending time with their grandkids and doing something that they both can enjoy.
Walleye games are for young kids who'll say that regardless of the score it was the mascot and Zamboni driver who stole the show. And they're for big kids who'll tell you this is the best nightclub in town. Walleye games take on the feel of a big community block party, where you can bump into a neighbor, or classmate, or co-worker, or old friend.
Walleye games give people a mix of fun - and affordable and entertaining experiences - that can fulfill the dreams and wishes of any fan. At any age. And any stage of life.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A HOCKEY FAN
Toledo Walleye hockey is not all about slap shots and hat tricks. It's about people sharing great times and great memories with their family and friends.
We've surveyed our fans and what they tell us may come as a surprise: "You don't have to be a hockey fan to have a great time."
In fact, 42% of those who attended a Walleye game in the past 12 months say that they're not interested in minor league hockey at all! (Data provided by Scarborough Research)
That's the beauty of the Toledo Walleye experience. It has something that scores big for everyone. And that's the goal! Great food, hilarious promotions, fun-loving mascots, and more!
