Also, the Toledo Walleye, in conjunction with the ECHL, have announced plans for the first-ever outdoor game in league history during the 2014-15 season. The opponent and exact date were not disclosed.
For 10 days at the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015, downtown Toledo will host an event to be known as ProMedica Toledo Hospital presents the Toledo Walleye Winterfest 2014. The outdoor game at Fifth Third Field is part of the festival.
"The Toledo Walleye are thrilled to host this unprecedented outdoor event," said Joe Napoli, president and general manager of the Walleye, in a statement.
"Our fans have been clamoring for an outdoor hockey game and the Toledo Walleye Winterfest is the perfect way to showcase old-school hockey while also featuring other winter sports and events," Napoli said.
