WALLEYE NOTES

Overtime thriller and the number nine highlight week: Tyler Spezia capped a furious Walleye comeback Wednesday morning when he scored early in overtime in a 5-4 win over Wheeling. The high was short lived as the Indy Fuel jumped on Toledo with three first period goals and Walleye took a 4-2 loss Friday night. The Walleye rebounded in a big way Saturday night with a nine goal effort against Brampton. It's the largest scoring output for Toledo since an 11-0 win on March 2, 2019 at home against the Fort Wayne Komets. The week ended with a 4-2 loss in Brampton.

Special teams special: Following a slow start to the season, Toledo's penalty kill has been on quite a roll lately, going five straight games without allowing a power play goal (22 consecutive stops). The run has raised Toledo's penalty kill percentage to 85.4% on the season. Couple that with Toledo's power play unit that has produced at 28.1% on the season.

Another record falls: With a school day crowd of 7,654 the Walleye posted another attendance record with the largest number of attendees for a school day celebration game in Walleye history. Toledo followed up that with a standing room only crowd of 8,101 on Saturday night for its third sellout in just four home games this season.

Streaking to ten games: Josh Kestner was held without a point in the first game of the season October 12 at Brampton but has not been held without a point for since. Over the past 10 games, the 26-year-old has posted 12 points (4G, 8A) while reaching a 10 game point streak. The longest point streak in Walleye history is 14 games set by TJ Hensick last season (December 1, 2018 through February 1, 2019.

Newfoundland week: Toledo plays just two games this week but it is some of the farthest travel of the year as the team returns to St. John's to take on the Newfoundland Growlers for a pair of games. The last time Toledo was in Newfoundland was game six of the Kelly Cup Finals in June when the Growlers took the Kelly Cup.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Josh Kestner (2 goals - 2 assists = 4 points)

GOALTENDER OF THE WEEK

Pat Nagle (2-1-0, 3.58 GAA, .891 save %)
