TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Forward Stephon Thorne has agreed to terms with the Toledo Walleye for the 2013-2014 season.

Thorne skated in 37 games with Toledo after being claimed off of waivers from Fort Wayne. With the Walleye he scored five goals, added six assists and 58 penalty minutes. The native of Mississauga, Ontario had two goals, one assist and 37 penalty minutes in 26 games last year with the Komets.

"We loved the energy and spark to the team that Stephon gave us night in and night out last year," Head Coach Nick Vitucci said. "He is also a strong penalty killer and has that knack to do something on the ice right when we need it."

His first professional season was in 2011-2012 when he helped the Fort Wayne Komets win the CHL Championship. Thorne had 11 goals, 21 assists and 90 penalty minutes that first year. The 6 feet tall, 180 pound forward appeared in 189 games in the Ontario Hockey League before turning professional with 32 goals, 25 assists and 236 penalty minutes over four seasons.

The 2013-2014 season homeopener for the Toledo Walleye is Oct.26 against the Wheeling Nailers. Single game tickets and game plans are on sale right now. Get yours by calling 419-725-WALL or go to the Toledo Walleye website.
