Walleye News and Notes

Another comeback and blowout highlight week: The week started with yet another comeback by the Walleye as they erased a 4-1 second period deficit to beat Greenville 5-4 on Wednesday. The comeback skill was unnecessary Friday night as the Walleye scored and scored and scored in a 7-1 rout of the Fort Wayne Komets. Pack them in: The Huntington Center continues to fill up with Friday’s sellout crowd. It was the fourth standing room only crowd this year in seven home contests. History in the making: Goaltender Cal Heeter picked up the win on Wednesday night to push his winning streak to eight consecutive to start the season. No Walleye goaltender has won eight straight games to open a year and Heeter has set a new Walleye record for the longest goaltender winning streak passing the old mark of seven set by Jeff Lerg (January 3-February 5, 2015) and matched last year by Jake Paterson (February 13-March 13, 2016). Powerful playing: Toledo scored four power play goals during Friday night’s win over Fort Wayne. The Walleye have scored at least one goal with the man advantage in five straight games going 10-24 (41.7%) during that stretch. For the season, the Walleye power play now ranks 4th in the ECHL at 22.9%. Only game on tap this week: Saturday night vs. Quad City is the lone contest ahead this week for Toledo. The Walleye were defeated 4-2 by the Mallards in the only other meeting this season at Quad City. Promotions: Prior to Saturday’s game is the annual Battle of the Badges as the Toledo Police take on the Fire Department with the game starting at 3:30 p.m. BCSN and Huntington Bank are the sponsors for this season’s Teddy Bear Toss that night as the Walleye skate against Quad City. Bring a new teddy bear to the game and when the Walleye score their first goal, fans will toss the bears on the ice. All stuffed animals will be given to local children in need. Our goal is to break last year's number of 3,000.

Walleye Player of the Week: Shane Berschbach (0 goals – 7 assists = 7 points)

Walleye Goaltender of the Week: Jake Paterson (1-0-0, 1.00 GAA, .960 save %)
