WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins announced today that forward Dillon Hamaliuk has been reassigned by the Pittsburgh Penguins to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton from their ECHL affiliate, the Wheeling Nailers.
Hamaliuk Scores Big!
Hamaliuk leads the Nailers with 11 goals, 18 assists and 29 points in 27 games. He also represented Wheeling at the 2024 AHL All-Star Game, where he posted two goals and an assist.
The 23-year-old was acquired by Pittsburgh in a trade with the San Jose Sharks on Aug. 6, the same trade that brought Erik Karlsson to the Penguins organization.

Prior to turning pro, Hamaliuk skated in five seasons of junior hockey in the Western Hockey League, suiting up for the Seattle Thunderbirds and Kelowna Rockets. Hamaliuk captured the WHL Championship with Seattle in 2017 and finished his junior career with 110 points (48G-62A) in 192 games.
