WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins announced today that they have signed defenseman Scooter Brickey to an American Hockey League contract for the 2024-25 season. Brickey will join the Penguins immediately on an amateur tryout agreement.

Brickey just completed a five-year collegiate career split between Western Michigan University and Ohio State University. This past season, the right-hand shot blueliner served as the Buckeyes’ co-captain and led the entire team with 13 goals.

Brickey’s 13 goals were also good for second-most among the nation’s defensemen, and he tied for second on Ohio State in points (26). His season earned him a selection to the All-Big Ten Second Team.

In 136 career NCAA games, Brickley amassed 50 points (19G-31).

A native of Burtchville, Michigan, Brickey played junior hockey in the Unites States Hockey League for the Muskegon Lumberjacks and Des Moines Buccaneers. In 2016-17, he led the league with a plus-30 rating.

The Penguins’ next game is the start of a three-in-three weekend, as they visit the Syracuse Crunch on Friday, Mar. 22. Opening faceoff for the Penguins and Crunch from Upstate Medical University Arena is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s next home game is also its annual Star Wars Night, as they take things into hyperspace against the Utica Comets. Star Wars Night is Saturday, Mar. 23 with a 6:05 p.m. puck drop at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.
