Chirps from Center Ice

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

Signings, Tickets, Promos and Old Faces

Smattering of small news stories shall compile the following blog post…

– Binghamton signed two defensemen yesterday, Bobby Raymond and Josh Godfrey. Raymond actually played a little with the B-Sens last season before he got injured. Godfrey apprenticed in the ECHL with South Carolina and appeared in a few Hershey Bears games.

– Speaking of the Bears, they signed forward Stanislav Galiev to an entry-level contract today. He won’t play for the Bears this year as it’s either NHL or juniors for him due to his age. Even if he were able to, I wouldn’t project him seeing any ice for Hershey with how stacked the 11-time Champions are going to be up front.

– Ex-WBS Penguin Ryan Stone is off to play in Finland next year. He had played last year with the Calgary organization.

– The Pens tweeted that sale dates for individual tickets for the upcoming season will be announced this week along with the promotional schedule. Always a hit with the fans, I can’t wait to see what the brain trust on Coal Street has planned this season.

– I have some inquiries out to a few teams on ticket prices at center ice for my yearly look at what a season ticket at center ice costs for every AHL team. Look for that post very, very soon here. Some interesting data.

– The fourth road game for the Pens preseason game hasn’t been announced yet. There is no news on this front whatsoever. Norfolk is actually playing a trio of games versus the St. John’s IceCaps, so the Admirals as a potential opponent is out. I still think it will be Syracuse. However I have nothing to back up my speculation.

– You can follow every AHL team on Twitter by going here and clicking “Follow this List” or you can follow every AHL team individually. While you are at it, if you are new to Twitter, follow this guy too.

Keep Chirpin’. Let’s Go Pens!
