Red Wings renew affiliation agreement
DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings today announced that the Toledo Walleye (ECHL) will remain the club’s official AA-level affiliate for the 2011-12 hockey season. The Walleye have served in this capacity since the team’s inaugural 2009-10 campaign. 
 
“We’re very excited to have the Walleye back as part of our organization for the upcoming season,” says Red Wings Assistant General Manager Jim Nill. “Toledo’s been a great partner for us over the years and they’ve proven to be a strong ECHL franchise since reentering the league. We look forward to watching our prospects continue to develop in a city with a strong minor league hockey tradition.”
 
The Walleye open their new season on Saturday, October 15 with a home game versus the Chicago Express. More information on the Red Wings’ ECHL affiliate can be obtained by visiting www.toledowalleye.com.
