G. Walker leaves impression in AHL opener.

The Reign didn’t practice on the ice today, so we turn to the AHL for some blog material …

Geoff Walker had an assist and a shootout goal in the Wilkes-Barre Penguins’ 4-3 shootout win on opening night Saturday. He was named first star of the game here. According to the Scranton Times-Tribune,

“I kind of saw that maybe his blocker side was a little weak,” said
winger Geoff Walker, who beat Holtby with a pretty, top-shelf backhand
shot. “He made some real nice glove saves in the third. I think the
mindset from us was, ‘Let’s go blocker and let’s get him moving.’ We did
that and it worked out for us tonight.”
