I personally never played for the Toledo Walleye, but after Cody and myself started Mountain High Hockey at about this time last year, I couldn't help but start to follow the team. It was a pretty awesome playoff run for them and the support we have continued to receive from the Walleye fans has been amazing. It has been great to see the support follow Cody overseas to his new team, the Fischtown Pinguins.
The on ice success that new coach Derek Lalonde instilled in the team last season has carried over to this year. The Walleye currently sit in first place in the ECHL Eastern Conference standings and second overall in the entire league. Their 41 wins is second only to the Missouri Mavericks and has already clinched the team a playoff spot. Shane Berschbach currently sits 4th in the ECHL scoring race with 61 points, while goaltender Jeff Lerg is having another stellar year posting a 2.06 GAA and a .930 save percentage.
The team is poised for another playoff run and we couldn't be more excited to follow along once again.
