The “Baby Pens” are celebrating their 20th season here in Wilkes-Barre, and I know some of you still haven’t been to a game.

Now is the time to ask yourself why. Maybe you’re not exactly a hockey fan – don’t worry about that. There are plenty of reasons you have to get to a game. The action on the ice is fast-paced and intense. Hard-earned goals and impossible saves are celebrated with a ferocity that electrifies the crowd. It’s almost impossible not to hop up from your seat and pump your fist in the air.

In NEPA, there’s room enough for more than one pastime.

It’s winter’s version of a cold beer and a hot dog at the ball park.

Except it’s even better. Eventually, winter weather will threaten to keep you holed up in your cozy cave for a few months. With 38 home games, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins offer an escape from the monotony of TV, the dread of holiday planning and decorating and the long unfulfilled sensation of raising a beer in honor of a good play.

Kids get cabin fever too.

And a Penguins’ game is the perfect place for them to soak up some unbridled excitement.

From the wild antics of Tux, the Penguins’ incorrigible mascot to soft pretzels and popcorn, kids of all ages discover a love for hockey at the Mohegan Sun Arena. And just about every home game features some unique promotion. Kids can join a free skating session after some games or attend an autograph signing. With Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Hockey, the fun goes well beyond the game.

So, no more excuses. You’re not too busy – especially in the winter.

Flexible ticket plans and full, half and quarter season tickets are available. And with promotions like WBRE Fan Fridays and Kids 14 and Under Free Nights, live Penguins’ action is probably much more affordable than you imagined.

Go. Become a hockey fan.
