WALLEYE NOTES:

  • Split in Missouri: Friday night, Toledo struck for three power play goals but so did Kansas City and the Mavericks posted a 6-4 win, the first loss of the year for the Walleye. The Walleye would rebound Saturday, scoring two power play goals in the first period and then adding two more on for a 4-2 win Saturday to split the two game set.
  • Getting off to a good start: Captain TJ Hensick has been brilliant to start the season with at least a point in four straight games including posting two assists in each of the past three contests. His seven total points lead the Walleye in scoring. Abbott Girduckis has scored a goal in three straight games and two of those have been game-winners. His three goals is tops on the Walleye through the first four games.
  • Nagle closes in on Lerg: With a perfect 3-0-0 start to the season, goaltender Pat Nagle is now just one win shy of tying Jeff Lerg for the most wins in Toledo Walleye history. Lerg posted 63 career wins during his time between the pipes for the fish while Nagle just picked up his 62nd career Walleye win on Saturday at Kansas City. Former Walleye coach and Toledo ECHL goaltender Nick Vitucci has the most wins in Toledo ECHL history with 77 during his time with the Storm.
  • Get the show started: The Walleye complete their season opening five game road start with a Tuesday morning game at Kalamazoo. It is the first of only seven meetings this year between the longtime rivals. Saturday night the real fun begins as the Huntington Center gets fired up for the home opener against the Florida Everblades. Toledo has an all-time record of 12-12-2 against the Everblades. Sunday completes the home-opener weekend as the rival Fort Wayne Komets make their way into Toledo. The Walleye won the first meeting between the two by taking down the Komets 5-3 in Fort Wayne.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Abbott Girduckis (2 goals, 1 assist = 3 points)

GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK: Pat Nagle (1-0-0, 2.00 GAA, .882 save %)
