WALLEYE NOTES

Up and down week results in a pair of wins: Toledo started its week with a 4-1 loss in Cincinnati but rebounded with wins at Wheeling (6-2) on Thursday and 3-2 over Kalamazoo Friday. The week closed with a tough 8-2 loss to the Wheeling Nailers on Saturday night. Toledo reached three or more goals in their wins which boosted their record to 21-0-1 when reaching three goals in a game.

Another week another sellout: Saturday night saw another standing room only crowd enter the Huntington Center (8,117). For the season the Walleye are averaging over a sellout at 7,616 per game (sellout is 7,431).

Leading the way: Forward TJ Hensick has climbed to the top of the ECHL with 43 points (13G, 30A). He also has best assist total at 30 of any player in the league. Shane Berschbach is right behind his teammate thanks to leading the Walleye in goals with 16 and posting 41 points.

Road warriors: Toledo's 6-2 win in Wheeling on Thursday was their 13th road victory of the season, most of any ECHL team (13-5-2). The Walleye have four more road games coming before the All-Star contest, which will mean that they will have played 24 of their first 38 games away from the Huntington Center.

First time ever: For the first time in Toledo hockey history the Walleye will travel to Boise for a three-game series in Idaho. Toledo bested the Steelheads in the two games that they played by scores of 4-0 and 3-2 on November 2 and 3 at the Huntington Center.
