Walleye return to home ice November 2-3
The Toledo Walleye return to the Huntington Center ice for Opening Weekend, Saturday, November 2 and Sunday, November 3.
Last season provides an indication of what to expect from the FINtastic defending ECHL Western Conference Champions, so consider us hooked.
Last season, the Toledo Walleye traveled more than 2,000 miles to reach the edge of North America in hopes of bringing home the Kelly Cup. While they fell short of their goal, the team did enjoy a historical run, making the longest post-season run in the Walleye’s 10-year history. This season, the Walleye will continue to make history.
Last season, Cody Sol played his fifth season for Toledo’s archrival, the Fort Wayne Komets. This season, the 6-foot-6 defenseman has been added to the Toledo Walleye training camp roster on a player tryout agreement. Will Sol put on the Walleye jersey and hit the ice for opening weekend against his former team?
Last season, forward Manny Gialedakis spit his time between Norfolk and Orlando in the ECHL. This season, he joins the Toledo Walleye.
Last season, Walleye fans broke their attendance record by selling out 31 of 36 regular-season games and 10 out of 12 playoff games. This season, fans will continue to be lured in as the Walleye play 33 of their 36 home games on weekend dates, so buy your season and single-game tickets as soon as possible.
Get Hooked on Opening Weekend
Since the Walleye’s inaugural season in 2009-10, every home opener at the Huntington Center has been sold out. If you haven’t already bought your tickets to the November 2-3 weekend opening, you’re skating on thin ice.

On Sunday, November 3, the Walleye/ Komets game begins at 5:15pm, and Toledo’s hockey history will be feted during Hockey Heritage Night as former Toledo hockey players from the Walleye, Storm, and even the Goaldiggers will be recognized. The first 1,500 fans through the gates will win a replica 2018-19 Western Conference Championship banner.
