Toledo Walleye re-sign defenseman Blake Hillman

From the Toledo Walleye:

Defenseman Blake Hillman has agreed to terms with the Toledo Walleye for the 2020-21 season.

Hillman returns to the Pond after splitting his time between Toledo, Grand Rapids, and Stockton during the 2019-20 season. He played 35 games for the Fish, where he racked up 13 points (1G, 12A) and eight penalty minutes. The 24-year-old added 12 games at the AHL level; five with the Griffins and seven with the Heat. 

Head Coach Dan Watson is excited to have Hillman return for his second season with the Walleye. 

“He has great patience with the puck, plays a smart and detailed game and has tremendous leadership skills. He will be counted on heavily to play against teams’ top lines and anchor our penalty kill unit again.” Dan Watson, Walleye Head Coach
