The “Baby Pens" Are Back On the Ice

Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins - Spectator Sports - DiscoverNEPA


Don’t Miss All the Action of the 2019 – 20 Season.

There’s little doubt that ice hockey is an exciting sport. But when it comes to experiencing non-stop, high speed, ice shredding, board-checking battles, you’ve got to see the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins live.

A subtle rumble rolls its way around the Mohegan Sun Arena. The intense action on the ice never seems to stop. Children happily cheer on their favorite players. Hard-earned goals electrify the crowd, and impossible saves inspire a whirling frenzy of fist pumping and the occasional hug among strangers.

Don’t let yourself get cooped up all fall and winter. Gather up your family and friends, and beat that cabin fever with tickets to see the Pens.

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 over 30 home games left in the season, the Penguins offer an escape from the monotony of TV and the dread of holiday planning. Put off hanging those lights for another day. The Christmas tree can wait. And Netflix is begging for a break. Trust me. No one needs to watch Breaking Bad that many times.

Go on. Get off that couch and get out there. The Pens have a comfy seat, a cold beer and one of their famous “Sticky Pig” sandwiches with your name on it.



Hey, Kids get cabin fever too.

And a Penguins’ game is the perfect place for them to unleash some of that unbridled excitement.

Kids of all ages discover a love for hockey at the Mohegan Sun Arena. And the fun goes well beyond the game. Kids can join free skating sessions and meet the players at autograph signings. They can follow the wild antics of Tux, the Penguins’ incorrigible mascot. And, of course, there’s no shortage of ice cream, cotton candy and nachos to keep them happy.

And just about every home game features a unique promotion. From Video Game Night and 80s Night to Holiday-themed celebrations and more, there’s always something fun going on.
