Per the Toledo Blade’s Mark Monroe:
The Toledo Walleye have agreed to terms with defenseman Randy Gazzola for the 2021-22 season.
Gazzola returns after helping the Walleye to its Kelly Cup Final appearance in the 2019 playoff year, when he registered one goal and seven assists over his first 24 games as a pro.
“Randy represents exactly what we look for when we are recruiting,” Walleye coach Dan Watson said. “He is a player who wants to get better, has high expectations and standards of himself, wants to win, but more importantly, he is a true leader and great person. Randy will be counted on to play big minutes, like he did during our Kelly Cup run.”
Following a year overseas, Gazzola suited up with Fort Wayne this past season, posting 33 points on four goals and 29 assists over 49 contests. He then added two goals and five assists in 13 playoff contests, helping the Komets to the Kelly Cup championship.
