Penguins News


Saturday, February 22 is shaping up to be the biggest night of the season at the Mohegan Sun Arena, as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins will be holding a trio of big events to go along with their game against the Providence Bruins.

First up, we’ll be holding our annual MILITARY APPRECIATION NIGHT, where we’ll be honoring active and retired members of our armed forces.  Be sure to pick up one of our special signed Penguins camo pucks behind section 108.  Each puck is autographed by a Penguins player and individually wrapped, so you won’t know whose signature you’re getting.  Find a puck with a special sticker on it, and you’ll walk home with game-used Penguins stick.  Pucks are just $10 apiece, and all of the proceeds from this sale go to our Tickets For Troops campaign, which supplies Penguins tickets to active members of the military and their families free of charge!

It’s also our OLYMPIC HOCKEY CELEBRATION.  And since it just happens to be the 34th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice, we thought we’d pay a little homage with these red, white and blue jerseys based off of those worn by the 1980 Olympic Team.  We’ll be auctioning these off at the game as well to benefit our Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins charity fund.  Plus be sure to watch for videos featuring former WBS players in the Olympics, and pick up a copy of BREAKAWAY to read about Dan Bylsma’s journey from Wilkes-Barre to Sochi.USA WBS

And the highlight of the night will be the inductions of Kevin Blaum, Alain Nasreddine and Dennis Bonvie into the PENGUINS HALL OF FAME.  Be sure to be in your seats earlier for the pregame ceremony to honor these three major players in the team’s history.

Plus the first 5,000 fans will take home a Brian Gibbons All-Star Poster, courtesy of our friends at McCarthy Tire.

Tickets are moving fast for this game, so don’t delay.  Get your seats at the Mohegan Sun Arena Box Office, online at, or call the Penguins at 570-208-7367.
