Monroe: Toledo Walleye re-sign Marcus Vela

From the Toledo Blade’s Mark Monroe:

The Toledo Walleye have re-signed Marcus Vela, a forward who appeared in 49 games for the team in 2019-2020.

Vela finished with 12 goals and 13 assists for 25 points with the Walleye as a rookie.

The 24-year-old from Burnaby, B.C. played last season for the Florida Everblades after the Walleye opted out. He appeared in 29 games, producing nine points with five goals and four assists.

Toledo coach Dan Watson said Vela brings versatility to the team.

“He has the ability to play up and down the lineup, both center and wing as well,” Watson said. “Marcus adds value off the ice with his preparation and willingness to get better each day. He gained valuable experience playing last season in Florida and we look forward to working with him again.”
