Forward Marcus Vela re-signs with the Walleye

Forward Marcus Vela has agreed to terms with the Walleye for the 2020-21 season.

Vela, 23, re-signs with Toledo after playing 49 games for the Fish during the 2019-20 season. Vela was assigned to Toledo by the Grand Rapid Griffins last October after being acquired from the San Jose Barracuda in exchange for defenseman Marcus Crawford.

In his first professional season, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound forward scored 12 goals and 13 assists for 25 points with the Walleye. He also skated in three games with the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears, recording one assist and six penalty minutes.

A seventh-round selection, 190th overall, by the San Jose Sharks in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Vela made his pro debut with the Barracuda at the end of the 2018-19 campaign and contributed two assists in six appearances.

Before turning pro, the Burnaby, British Columbia, native had a four-year career at the University of New Hampshire where he amassed 58 points (24G, 34A) and 112 penalty minutes in 135 games from 2015-2019.
