WALLEYE NOTES:

  • Unbeaten week for the Walleye: Toledo went 2-0-1 this past week thanks to an overtime win and dominate goaltending performance. Tuesday morning at Kalamazoo, defenseman Blake Hillman scored midway through overtime to propel the Walleye to a 4-3 win. Saturday night with a huge crowd in attendance at the Huntington Center, Toledo let a 3-1 third period lead slip away in a 4-3 overtime loss to Florida. The Walleye rebounded with three power play goals Sunday and a 39 save performance by Pat Nagle to collect a 3-1 win over Fort Wayne.
  • Nagle reaches the top of the mountain: With two wins this week, goaltender Pat Nagle passed Jeff Lerg as the winningest goaltender in Toledo Walleye history with 64 career wins. Nagle is 5-0-1 to start this season after posting win totals of 37 and 22 in the past two years for the Walleye. Next up on the all-time Toledo ECHL list is Nick Vitucci, who won 77 games during his time with the Toledo Storm.
  • Another record falls: With a monstrous crowd of 8,379 on Saturday night, the Walleye set another attendance record for the largest crowd for an opening night. That breaks the old record of 8,363 from the start of the 2018-19 season. With another 6,657 for Sunday’s game vs. Fort Wayne, Toledo had 15,036 fans in the Huntington Center for opening weekend.
  • Post those firsts: Defenseman Alec McCrea picked up the first goal for the Walleye on Saturday, his first professional strike. Brett Boeing did the same thing a day later as the first year forward tallied his first pro goal in the third period to give Toledo some breathing room in Sunday’s win.
  • Start of a busy stretch for the Walleye: It’s a four game week for the Walleye that opens up on Wednesday when the Wheeling Nailers are in Toledo for a morning tilt. This is the first of 12 meetings this season for the longtime rivals that goes back to the 1991 season. Friday night the Walleye are in Indy for the opening of 13 matchups this year. Saturday and Sunday features a home at home with the Brampton Beast. Toledo won the first matchup 4-3 back on October 12 in Canada.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Shane Berschbach (2 goals, 2 assists = 4 points)

GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK: Pat Nagle (2-0-1, 2.58 GAA, .928 save %)
