ECHL releases 2014-2015 season schedule; here’s the Toledo Walleye’s 14-15 sked

The ECHL released its 2014-2015 regular-season schedule today, and while their website didn't produce a particularlly visually-friendly set of team-by-team results, here's the 14-15 schedule for the Red Wings' ECHL affiliate, the Toledo Walleye:

And the Toledo Blade's Mark Monroe discusses some of the highlights thereof:

The Toledo Walleye will open next season at home when they host the Cincinnati Cyclones on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Toledo, which has averaged over 6,000 fans at the Huntington Center four times in the last five years, will host Eastern Conference champion Cincinnati in its home opener.

The ECHL released its 2014-15 scheduled today and the league's 27th season begins on Oct. 17 with six games being played in six states from Florida to Alaska.

The Walleye will host the first outdoor game in ECHL history. Toledo will play two games at Fifth Third Field in downtown as part of a week-long Winterfest. The Walleye will host Kalamazoo on Saturday, Dec. 27 and Fort Wayne on Saturday, Jan. 3.

Toledo's first road game of the year is on Oct. 24 at the ECHL’s newest member, the Indianapolis Fuel.

Quickie update: The Walleye just released a set of season-to-come highlights:

All of the hits, sights, sounds, and excitement of 'T-Town Hockey' will return to the Huntington Center on Saturday, October 18, when the Toledo Walleye open the 2014-2015 season at home against the division-rival Cincinnati Cyclones.

The 36-game home schedule features the first two ECHL games ever to be played outdoors at Fifth Third Field, during the Toledo Walleye Winterfest presented by ProMedica. The epic 10-day community celebration runs from December 26, 2014 through January 4, 2015, with the Walleye taking on Kalamazoo on Saturday, December 27, and Ft. Wayne on Saturday, January 3, 2015.

The Walleye-Wings rivalry heats up, with Kalamazoo visiting the Glass City a total of seven times during the season, the most of any ECHL team. The Walleye will tackle Cincinnati five times at the "Fish Pond", and play eight home games against Indiana teams (three against Ft. Wayne, three against Evansville, and two versus the newest addition to the ECHL - the Indy Fuel).

If you like catching a game at the Huntington Center over the weekend, you're in luck!  The Walleye play 32 of their 36 home games on either a Friday (10 games), Saturday (16 games), or Sunday (6 games). Fans attending the six Sunday games should bring their skates for a postgame skate on the Huntington Center ice.

The Walleye fan experience again includes great food and fun theme nights along with Scout Sleepovers, Jersey Auctions and TWO School Celebration Days!  It's not too soon to sign-up.

Don't miss a single minute of the action. Toledo Walleye game plans are on sale right now. Winterfest ticket packages are available for all Walleye and Mud Hens Game Plan Holders.  Get yours by calling 419-725-9255.

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.
