With goaltender Kaden Fulcher recalled to Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, the Walleye have added goaltender Jeff Lerg for the remainder of the 2018-19 regular season.
Lerg was last on a Walleye roster during the 2016-17 season when he appeared in five games for Toledo, going 3-1-0 with a 3.40 goals against average and a .890 save percentage. The native of Livonia, Michigan appeared in 38 games last year in France with a 25-11-2 record (2.75GAA and .902SVP).
In his time with Toledo, Lerg is first all-time in Walleye history with 92 appearances and 2,459 saves, second with 63 wins and second with 7 shutouts. His 5,449 minutes played is still the most for a Walleye goaltender. In his Toledo career, the 32 year old had a 2.33 goals against average and .921 save percentage which both rank in the top three in Walleye history.
During the 2015-16 season, Lerg was at his best when he posted a 28-11-3 record with a sparkling 2.17GAA and .925SVP (both of which are current single season Walleye records). In back to back seasons (2014-2016), he landed on the All-ECHL teams as the second team goaltender.
