A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

Auf Wiedersehen, Steve Wagner

Steve Wagner is off to Germany according to this release (in German) from the Adler Mannheim Eagles of the DEL. (German Hockey League)

Whenever I get to translate hockey press releases from another language to English I always jump at the opportunity. So translated from German to English, here goes:

Eagles take Steve Wagner under contract

09. June 2011

The eagles took the American Steve Wagner under contract. On 6 March 1984 born defender changes of the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins to the eagles.

Wagner denied the past one and a half seasons with the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins in the AHL and completed in this time 101 plays. During the season 2009/10 it changed of Peoria Rivermen to the league competitor.

Steve Wagner denied into the NHL 46 plays for the pc. Louis Blues and obtained thereby four gates and prepared eight further. In the AHL completed it altogether 241 plays for the two clubs Peoria Rivermen and Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins specified above.

Wagner signed an a annual contract with the eagles.

Wagner leaves behind a Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins team in which he played 69 regular season games going 5-23-28 and a +16. He will most be remembered in the minds of many in Wilkes-Barre for his Game 6 playoff performance in Round 1 against the Norfolk Admirals, where he recorded a hat trick.

I would like to thank good friend Siena Slusser for the information which led to this news.

We here at Chirps from Center Ice wish Wagner the best in his German endeavours.
