Walleye ink standout goaltender Billy Christopoulos

Goaltender Billy Christopoulos has agreed to terms with the Toledo Walleye for the 2020-21 season.

Christopoulos returns to the Pond after playing 29 games with the Fish during the 2019-20 season. The 26-year-old finished his first professional season with a league-best .932 save percentage, while posting a 24-3-3 record. He had a 2.29 goals against average last season, which finished as the sixth-best in the ECHL. His 24 wins was third-best in the league.

Twice during the 2019-20 season, Christopoulos was honored by the league as Goaltender of the Week and Month. From February 17 through 23, he went 2-0-0 with a 1.00GAA and .977SVP. The second came as Goaltender of the Month, when he went 5-1-1 over seven starts in February with a sparkling 1.82GAA and a .947SVP.

Before turning pro, the 6-foot-2, 193-pound goaltender was recruited to play for the United States Air Force Academy, posting a record of 42-35-11 in 93 career games over four seasons. He was named First-Team All-Atlantic Hockey during his senior season, and finished his collegiate career tied for second all-time with a .915 save percentage and third with a 2.25 goals-against average. The North Carolina native has been accepted into the World Class Athlete Program (WCAP), where he looks to earn a spot on the 2022 U.S.A. Olympic team.
