Haggerty Re-Signs; Penguins Promo Schedule

See, had I blogged at the time that Coal Street announced the re-signing of Ryan Haggerty to an AHL contract this morning, I would have had a second blog piece on the 2017-18 Penguins promotional Schedule when I got home and opened my mail.

Glad I didn’t in a way. It’s Summer. I don’t want to bombard you with a ton of blog posts. Go outside. Jump in the pool. Go golfing. Have a cigar (if you are old enough) Ride a roller coaster.

Anyway, it’s true. The Penguins did re-sign Haggerty for another season. Known for his heavy shot, Haggerty had a pretty balanced year for Wilkes-Barre last season, with 11 goals and 12 assists for 23 points in a supporting role.

Penguins signed Cody Wydo yesterday. Do they make it 3-for-3 and announce another signing Friday? Stay tuned, I guess.

Anyway, here’s the promo schedule which I assume is out there because I have received my season ticket mailing. Nothing on their website so here I am tapping away on my MacBook on a late August evening…

Of the 38 home games for the Penguins, 26 of them are a theme night or a promotional giveaway. That’s pretty awesome marketing, if you ask me.-

Anyway, I’ll be right back, I’m going to work on trying to get the Penguins to give me that beach towel now to use in the month of August. Call it advanced beta testing.
