The game on Saturday is part of a day full of hockey at the downtown arena.

Tickets to all of the games are $5 for general admission seats. All proceeds benefit the Toledo Walleye charitable fund — Walleye Wishing Well.

Training camp opened on Wednesday for the Walleye.

The Walleye open the regular season the following Saturday at the Huntington Center against Kalamazoo. It is just one of two regular-season home games in the month of October.
