Home Opener Opponent Announced, Full Schedule Friday

Mark your calendars.

The Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins announced Wednesday that their opponent for their home opener on October 16 will be the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Time of the game is going to be 6:05. I don’t know why the change, maybe a Penn State Football thing or something, who knows.

The AHL announced all other 30 AHL teams home openers here. The Penguins aren’t on any one else’s home opener release. The League opens October 15, the Penguins play October 16, meaning they could play at home on Sunday, October 17 or on the road that day. The Pens are one of a handful of teams still playing 76 games before the mandated 72 game schedule for all teams in 2022-23. Let’s hope not and they minimize the Sunday and weekday home games. A straight schedule of all Friday and Saturday games, I propose!

Full schedule Friday. More undoubtedly then.
