šŸ§ GIVEAWAY - Win 5 Tickets to the WBS Penguins 1st Home Game of 2019

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Take on the Utica Comets on Saturday, October 12, 2019

October 1, 2019


WILKES-BARRE, Pa.  – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins’ full 2019-20  schedule was released by the American Hockey League, featuring all 38 of their home games to be played at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey  Plaza. 

Under the guidance of new head coach Mike Vellucci, the Penguins will play a  76-game regular-season schedule (38 home/38 road) featuring games against 12 teams in the Eastern Conference and an additional two opponents from the Western Conference. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton remains a  member of the eight-team Atlantic Division, along with the Bridgeport  Sound Tigers, Charlotte Checkers, Hartford Wolf Pack,  Hershey Bears, Lehigh Valley Phantoms, Providence Bruins and  Springfield Thunderbirds. The Penguins will meet division foes 52 times  (26 home/26 road) with their remaining 24 games coming against clubs in the North Division (eight home/eight road) and Central  Division (four home/four road). 

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton will open its 2019-20 season on Saturday, Oct. 5 by visiting a bitter rival, the Hershey Bears. As it was revealed yesterday,  the Penguins will host their home opener on Saturday, Oct. 12, when they face off with the Utica Comets at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. 

The  Penguins have added two new opponents to their schedule this season,  both of which come from the Western Conference. The Central Division’s  San Antonio Rampage and Texas Stars will visit Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for two-game sets in October and December, respectively. The Penguins will then return the favor by traveling down to the Lone Star State in  January. This season marks the first time the  Penguins and Rampage will go head-to-head since February 6, 2009, a  game in which Wilkes-Barre/Scranton walked away with a thrilling, 4-3  overtime victory. The Penguins’ and Stars’ showdown at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza on Dec. 6 will be the first-ever meeting between the two clubs. 

Twenty-nine of the Penguins’ 38 home games this season will take place on weekends,  with 12 home dates on Friday, 15 on Saturday and two Sunday matinées. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton will also be active during the holidays  in the first half of the season, hosting home games the day before  Thanksgiving (Nov. 27 vs. Lehigh Valley), the first game back after the  Christmas break (Dec. 27 vs. Lehigh Valley) and  a New Year’s Eve afternoon game against the Springfield Thunderbirds. 

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s longest homestand of the 2019-20 season is six games, starting with the  New Year’s Eve tilt with the Thunderbirds and ends on Jan. 11 against Hartford. Immediately after that homestand, the  Penguins will embark on a season-high six-game road trip in January,  including their visits to Texas, San Antonio and the defending Calder  Cup Champions, the Charlotte Checkers.  

The Penguins’ full 2019-20 schedule is listed HERE.
