Prospect (free) Round-up: Christopoulos, Walleye beat Fort Wayne

I never quite know what to do with the Toledo Walleye as they have exactly one Red Wings prospect right now in goaltender Victor Brattstrom, who’s the back-up behind Billy Christopoulos this season, but for completeness’ sake:

Toledo won a 3-2 overtime decision vs. the Fort Wayne Komets on Thursday, with Christopoulos stopping 33 shots. The Walleye’s website posted a recap:

TJ Hensick netted two goals in regulation, Billy Christopoulos made a season-best 34 saves, and Josh Dickinson saved the day with a game winner as the Toledo Walleye defeated the Fort Wayne Komets for their first overtime victory of the year.

The Walleye’s Thanksgiving victory in Fort Wayne marked the Fish’s fourth win in the last five games. Toledo leapfrogged the Komets in the Central Division standings with the win to take control of the division lead with a 9-5-0 record.

Continued; the Walleye will wrap up a stretch of 3 games in 3 nights tomorrow at home vs. the Indy Fuel.
