The AHL | Tickets  | Press Releases

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins are a professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League, and are the AHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Pittsburgh Penguins.  They play at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township, Pennsylvania, just outside the city of Wilkes-Barre. 

The Penguins were the 2011 winners of the East Division and the Eastern Conference (in terms of regular season titles), winning their first Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy.

The Penguins have gone to the Calder Cup final three times but have never won the championship. 

The team went all the way to the finals in their second season, losing to the Saint John Flames in six games. 

The Penguins returned to the finals in their fifth season, but were swept by the Milwaukee Admirals. 

They most recently made it to the finals in 2008 by way of beating the Portland Pirates in a seven-game series in the Eastern Conference finals. 

They went on to play the Chicago Wolves in the final, but lost the series 4–2.

The Penguins won the Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy for the best finish in the regular season in 2011 with 117 points. Head coach John Hynes won the Louis A. R. Pieri Memorial Award, awarded to the most outstanding AHL coach of the season. 

Despite the best regular season finish in team history, the WBS Penguins were eliminated in the second round of the 2011 playoffs by the Charlotte Checkers in six games.

The Penguins have made the playoffs in all but three seasons of their existence. As of the end of the 2019–20 season, the WBS Penguins held a playoff streak of 16 seasons from the 2002–03 season to the 2017–18 season.
