Walleye Notes

Toledo takes three of four for the week: The Walleye finished its first four game week of the season with a 3-1-0 record. A pair of goals each from TJ Hensick and Brett McKenzie paced Toledo to a 4-1 win at Indy on Wednesday night. Josh Dickinson led the way Friday night in Kalamazoo with a three point (2G, 1A) effort to pace the Walleye to a 6-4 win in Kalamazoo. Toledo dominated the K-Wings in Toledo Saturday night 6-0 with John Albert adding in two of the goals. TJ Hensick pushed his point streak to six games Sunday, but it wasn’t enough to finish off a perfect week as Fort Wayne downed the Walleye 5-2.

Setting a record: Toledo set a new record in just its first home game of the season by welcoming in an Opening Night-record crowd of 8,401 on Saturday night. This bested the previous record which was 8,379 set on November 2, 2019 against Florida. After Sunday’s game, the Walleye are averaging 7,526 on the season which is second-most in the ECHL.

Shutting the door to start the home season: Goaltender Kaden Fulcher posted 22 saves to collect a 6-0 shutout win against Kalamazoo on Saturday night. It was the third time in Walleye history that the Walleye shut out an opponent in the first home game of the season. Pat Nagle shut out the Quad City Mallards 3-0 on October 21, 2017 and Mac Carruth held Wheeling scoreless 2-0 on October 26, 2013. The Walleye own an all-time record of 6-5-1 in home openers.

Leading the way: Forward John Albert has scored at least one goal in five of Toledo’s seven games played so far this year. His eight goals is the most for any player in the ECHL to this point of the season. Prior to joining the Walleye for this season, Albert had scored only 13 goals in 74 games in the ECHL.

Three in three weekend ahead for the Walleye: The Walleye will play three games in three days this week starting Friday night with the first matchup of the season with the Wheeling Nailers at the Huntington Center. It is Veterans Appreciation Night presented by Owens Community College. Toledo will look to avenge Sunday’s loss when they travel to Fort Wayne for Saturday night. Sunday is a return to the Huntington Center to host Indy with Toledo holding a 1-0-0 record against the Fuel.
