(Toledo, OH) – The Toledo Walleye have agreed to terms for the 2023-2024 season with forwards Patrick McGrath and Sam Sternschein (STERN-shine), along with defenseman Will Cullen and goaltender Rylan Parenteau.

McGrath returns to the Walleye after skating in 30 games for Toledo last season. The 30-year-old had 23 penalty minutes during those contests with no points while amassing another 42 penalty minutes in five games with San Jose in the AHL. In his ECHL career, the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania native has 16 points (7G, 9A) and 668 penalty minutes over 195 games in seven seasons. He also has 137 games at the AHL level (4G, 5A, 482 penalty minutes).

The Syosset, New York native appeared in 11 games at the end of the 2021-2022 season with Jacksonville of the ECHL and produced eight points (4G, 4A).
