What you missed…
Countdown to Opening NightOctober 16, 2021
77 days to go.
A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
Oh, hello there!
Word of my demise here on the blog has been greatly exaggerated. No, I haven’t given it up. Yes, there hasn’t been anything of substance to blog about. J-S Dea finally signed his qualifying offer and Sahir Gill signed with the Rochester Americans as Jason Botterill continues to poach last years players from Coal Street.
There, you are caught up since the months time or so since I have been in the Chirps from Center Ice living room.
Some other notable things to blog about include the Penguins Rookie Tournament which gets going this weekend in Buffalo. Coal Street put out a nice press release about who is all going here complete with a roster and going next level by sharing the tournament guide complete with in depth player bios.
Notable names like Lukas Bengtsson, Ethan Prow, Jeff Taylor and Dylan Zink lead the blueliners. Forwards Zach Aston-Reese, Teddy Blueger, Thomas DiPauli, Reid Gardiner and Daniel Sprong lead the punch up front.
Pittsburgh will carry the games online through their website if you are itching to watch some hockey four weeks before the start of the regular season.
I’m going to get cracking soon on the AHL Previews and will share a date on when they will roll out in the coming weeks. We are not too far away from the first preseason games. Business is going to pick up again here shortly.
