The Toledo Walleye will be paying tribute to Toledo's
fallen heroes. Before the start of Friday's game at the Huntington Center, the
team will observe a moment of silence to remember and honor Stephen Machcinski
and James Dickman.
The players will also wear special TFRD decals on their
helmets, which will be worn for the rest of the season.
"Even in Evansville they did a ceremony for the guys that
passed away," said Captain Kyle Rogers. "It's amazing how much support people
give these firefighters. It's just that time, you take a second to think about
what we have and not take it for granted."
The players have signed two jerseys, which will be
raffled off Friday and Saturday, to benefit the Toledo Fire and Rescue
"Your heart goes out to the firefighters and the families
of the firefighters who lost their lives," said Head Coach Nick Vitucci. "I
love my job, I come to work every day, but at no point during the day do I ever
fear losing my life. I can't imagine doing that, and these people in those
services do that every single day
The team will also be wearing special St. Patrick 's Day
green jerseys on March 15, and the game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off
after the game, with proceeds also to benefit the Toledo Fire and Rescue
