Alden Hirschfeld named Toledo Walleye captain

This is pretty cool given that Alden Hirschfeld is from Sylvania, Ohio:

The Toledo Walleye announced today that forward Alden Hirschfeld will serve as team captain for the remainder of the 2017 season.

Hirschfeld replaces Jared Nightingale who has signed a standard player contract with the Chicago Wolves.  Nightingale first joined the Wolves in December and then again in January.  He has played in eight games with one assist.

“Alden is a true leader on and off the ice,” says Head Coach Dan Watson. “Wearing the C is the natural progression of his leadership role and overall commitment to the team."

This is Hirschfeld’s fourth season with the Walleye.  The 29-year-old Sylvania native has skated in 41 games this season and has tallied 38 points (18G/20A), 21 penalty minutes with a +9 plus/minus rating.

The Walleye play three on the road this weekend with the first stop in Wichita. The team returns to the Huntington Center the weekend of February 24, with Saturday celebrating Toledo’s Hockey Heritage and the 2017 Toledo Hockey Hall of Fame class.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
