PENGUINS vs RED WINGS TONIGHT

Carter Rowney
Carter Rowney is looking to land a spot on the Pittsburgh Penguins opening night roster.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are in preseason action tonight when they face off with the Detroit Red Wings at 7:00pm, and we expect Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to be represented, both on the ice and in the stands.

On the ice, Carter Rowney and Jake Guentzel are both once again in the lineup, looking to crack the Penguins’ opening night roster.  Other players with NEPA connections suiting up for the NHL club tonight are goaltenders Marc-Andre Fleury and Tristan Jarry; defensemen Olli Maatta, David Warsofsky, Brian Dumoulin, Derrick Pouliot and Kris Letang; and forwards Scott Wilson, Tom Kuhnhackl and Conor Sheary.

Several hundred Wilkes-Barre/Scranton season ticket holders will be on hand for the game as well.  Tickets for the contest are one of the perks that season ticket members received this year.

Fans not in Pittsburgh can listen to tonight’s game via the Penguins mobile app, online at 105.9 the X, or can watch it on the NHL Network.  The Penguins roster for tonight’s game (subject to change):
