The Toledo Walleye all-time leader in plus/minus returns to T-Town; defenseman Cody Lampl has agreed to terms with the Toledo Walleye for the 2014-15 season.

Lampl spent last season in the AHL with St. John's where he appeared in 38 games, collecting 32 penalty minutes and for the IceCaps. In 64 games with the Walleye in the 2012-13 season he set career highs in goals (6), points (14), and penalty minutes (127). The native of Ketchum, Idaho, also set a current Walleye record by finishing that season with a plus/minus of plus 20.

"When I took over as head coach, our vision was to build this group with a team first mentality," said Coach Derek Lalonde. "Cody epitomizes this goal and is a very exciting signing for us."

Ed Strohscher has never had much luck with the 145-yard 14th hole at Hidden Hills Golf Club in Woodville.

“It’s a real frustrating hole,” said Strohscher, 67, of Genoa. “There’s a pond on the right side and a hill on the left side. It’s a hard one. I usually end up putting (my tee shot) on top of the hill.”

Strohscher, who was playing with his brother-in-law, Joe Hartley, his uncle, Kermit Cook, and a cousin, John Cook, grabbed his 5 hybrid club on the morning of Aug. 5 and took a swing at the Calloway golf ball at his feet.

It wasn’t the best stroke of Strohscher’s 10-year golfing career, and he knew it right away.
