This is Why They Named the Hockey Team the Walleye

The Toledo Walleye hockey team clinched a ECHL Kelly Cup playoff berth this week. Nice work by coach Nick Vitucci and the Walleye in season one. Congratulations. May your playoff run be long.
Last Sunday I went down to the Mighty Maumee River at sunrise to sample the other Walleye Run. The one that involves the namesake of Vitucci's boys. Here's some video I shot of one of Metro Toledo's most famous annual happenings.

The river Walleye's show up for their spawning run every spring. The hockey 'Eyes are one for one.
