DeSMITH STEPS IN TO LEAD PENS

By Brian Coe April 26, 2016 Prior to April 10, the sum total of Casey DeSmith’s ice time in the American Hockey League amounted to just 79:57. He outdid that total by nearly 14 minutes on Saturday night alone. DeSmith was in net for every second of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins’ 5-4, double overtime, series clinching victory over the Providence Bruins.  Three weeks ago, DeSmith playing 93 minutes in the entire postseason would have seemed improbable. But his path to the playoffs… read more

TRADE DEADLINE BOLSTERS WILKES-BARRE/SCRANTON

It was a relatively quiet trade deadline day as it related to the Pittsburgh Penguins, but much more eventful for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.  Here’s a look at the moves made today, and how they’ll affect the local Pens. 1)      TRADE - Sergei Plotnikov to the Arizona Coyotes for Matthias Plachta:  Plotnikov never showed the offensive prowess the Penguins had hoped for.  Plachta, also in his first season in North America, had seven points… read more

O’NEILL ENJOYS ALL-STAR APPEARANCE

February 1, 2016 SYRACUSE, NY - Will O’Neill and Chris Bourque are not strangers to each other.  They both grew up just outside of Boston, one of the most tightly-intertwined hockey communities.  They’ve also faced off numerous times during the past five seasons in the American Hockey League. So it seemed only natural to put the two on the ice together for Monday night’s AHL All-Star Challenge. Bourque tallied a pair of goals on the night, with O’Neill setting the… read more

September 13, 2015 By Brian Coe Jean-Sebastien Dea was an undrafted junior player when he pulled on a Pittsburgh Penguins sweater at the 2013 London rookie tournament.

THREE-ON-THREE OT BRINGS EXCITEMENT

by Brian Coe The American Hockey League experimented with a hybrid overtime period last season, featuring four-on-four play for the first three minutes of play.  Then, after the first whistle past the 4:00 mark, play switched to three-on-three play for the remainder of the seven minute extra frame. The results were astounding. Last season, 199 AHL games made it to OT, but only 67 games advanced to the shootout round.  The three years prior to that saw 178, 144 and 139 games reach the one-on-one… read more
