The 5-foor-9, 185-pound winger ranked eighth among Bears skaters in plus/minus (+11) and tied for ninth in goals. In addition, Walker set a career high with two game-winning goals in 2016-17 and tied his career high in multi-goal games (2).

During the 2015-16 season, Walker registered 41 points (17 goals, 24 assists) in 73 games with Hershey, setting career highs in points, goals, assists and games played.
