Walleye Notes

Blowout to put first win on the board highlights weekend: Toledo hit the road for two games in Iowa over the weekend and they hit the ground running with a 10-1 win on Friday night. Toledo got the night going with a pair of first period goals, before blowing the game wide open with a six spot in the second. Ten Walleye skaters finished the night with multiple point efforts. Toledo broke up a 2-2 tie midway through the third period on Saturday night with three unanswered goals to collect the weekend sweep. The Walleye outscored the Heartlanders 15-3 over the two games.

Six is nice: Toledo blew Friday's match open with a six-goal second period, tying a franchise record for goals in a period. That record was originally set on March 2, 2019 vs. Fort Wayne, also in the second period. That game finished up in an 11-0 win.

Albert and Vela bring out the hats: Toledo posted back to back hat tricks over the weekend. First it was John Albert collecting his first professional three goal effort on Friday with Marcus Vela following that up with one the very next night. Meanwhile, forward John Albert leads the Walleye and tied for the league lead with five goals this season, and he is second in the ECHL in points with seven total (5G, 2A). For Vela, it was his second career hatty as he had one on November 30, 2019 at Reading which was also in a Walleye uniform. It is only the second time in Walleye history that the team has had back to back games with hat tricks with the first being when Shane Berschbach did it himself with three goal outputs December 29 and 31 in 2019.

Home opener on tap this week: After a trip to Indy and Kalamazoo, the Huntington Center doors will open for regular season hockey for the first time since March 11, 2020. The Walleye will host the Kalamazoo Wings in what will be the most anticipated home opener since October 16, 2009 when the Walleye first took to the ice at the Huntington Center. Another rival, the Fort Wayne Komets will invade Toledo for the Sunday afternoon tilt.
