Excitement is starting to build for fans of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins who have made two big moves prior to the start of the American Hockey League Season.
First bit of news is the fact that the team has announced forward Josh Currie has been selected as the team’s captain for the 2020-21 season.
This will be the first season for Currie with the Penguins, and his first wearing the ‘C’ as a pro. He has plenty of experience as he was the captain of the P.E.I Rocket of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League during the 2011-12 and 2013-14 seasons. Currie was also an alternate captain the past two years in the AHL with the Bakersfield Condors.
The 28-year-old will be joining the Penguins, after posting a team-leading 24 goals last season with the Condors. Currie was also one of the only two players to have scored at least 20 goals in each of the last four AHL seasons.
Currie who was at first undrafted as went on to play 472 professional games between the ECHL, AHL and NHL over the last eight seasons.
The next bit of news for fans of the team is a chance in the schedule as the game between the Penguins and the Binghamton Devils has been rescheduled to Monday, February 8 at 5:00 p.m. at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.
