Walleye Notes

Walleye grab two wins for the week: The Walleye started its four game Mountain road swing with a bang downing Wichita 6-2 on St. Patrick’s Day. Mitchell Heard led the way with two goals and one assist. Toledo dropped the first game in Tulsa Saturday night despite the 17th goal of the season by Brett Boeing. The Walleye rebounded on Sunday, posting a 3-1 win when goaltender Billy Christopoulos made 38 saves on 39 shots in the 3-1 win.

Road Warriors: With two more road wins this past week, the Walleye sit atop the ECHL in road wins with 20 on the year. For the campaign, Toledo owns a 20-8-1 record in games played on the road. Only Florida has fewer road regulation losses (5) than the Walleye.

Rising in the ranks: Defenseman Randy Gazzola continues to produce from Toledo’s back end with 42 points (12G, 30A) in his 48 games played this season. He currently ranks fifth among all defenseman in scoring while his four game-winning strikes are good for second most in the league for defensemen.

Powering up: Since a 0-12 stretch on the power play in late January into early February, Toledo’s power play has been kicking in high gear with at least one goal in 15 of the last 20 games played. In that span the unit has two goals in six of those games and converted on 21 of its last 62 chances, good for 32.3%.

Final stretch vs. the Mountain: Toledo will put a cap on its Mountain Division play this week with the final four games starting tonight in Tulsa. The Walleye will host the Allen Americans for three games over the coming weekend. Toledo lost the only prior matchup with the Americans on January 24, 2015, a 3-1 defeat at the Huntington Center.

Walleye Player of the Week:

Mitchell Heard (2 goals – 2 assists = 4 points)

Walleye Goaltender of the Week:
