Opening the Year with a Win: Toledo started the season 1-0 with its 3-2 win at Quad City last Friday for the first time since it beat Fort Wayne 4-3 in a shootout to open the 2013-14 season. All-Time the Walleye have a record of 4-4-1 in games that start a season dating back to the 2009 season when the Walleye started play. Combined with the Toledo Storm (14-2-0), Toledo has an all-time ECHL record of 18-6-1 in game one.

Pack them In: Toledo has had at least 8,000 fans in attendance for every home opening game since the Huntington Center opened in October of 2009. Last year was a banner year for the Walleye averaging 7,074 for the first time in Toledo hockey history going over 7,000 per game and had a record 20 sellouts during the course of the year. Toledo's percentage of capacity has risen from 81.03% in 2013-14 to 95.20% last year.

Anderson Added to Walleye Roster: Prior to today's game, Toledo has added goaltender JP. Anderson to the roster. Anderson won 15 games last year with Adirondack and four more in a short stint with Wheeling as well. The 25 year old has a career mark of 28-18-7 with a 2.79GAA and .907SVP in the ECHL.

This Day in Toledo Hockey History: The defending Turner Cup champion Goaldiggers opened the road portion of their 1978-79 season in Port Huron against the Flags, skating to a 2-2 tie. Goaltender Mike Dibble was the star, making 33 saves as the Diggers improved to 1-0-1. Also on this date in 1970, Hal White scored an amazing 5 goals as the Toledo Hornets opened their home portion of the IHL schedule, with an easy 9-4 win over the Port Huron Flags.
