President’s Thoughts
By Vicki Silva

Hockey is back, well at least virtually. We started out watching our guys in
Pittsburgh and soon we will be able to see Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins on AHL
live. This is not the best scenario, but we can still enjoy the home and away games on tv. We are use to watching the away games on tv, that we don’t attend this way.

Congratulations to our new head coach, J.D. Forrest and welcome back to Kevin
Porter as our assistant coach. A big welcome back to all of the returning players and to the new players. I am anxious to see our new ones. It’s going to be interesting to see how this shortened season plays out. Of course, we are in probably the toughest
division, but win or lose, I will still cheer on our boys.

We are still not having in person meetings as the board has decided that we want everyone to be safe. Unfortunately, this virus is real and has claimed a lot of lives. Pleases stay safe and follow the CDC guidelines.

Looking forward to walking back into the arena with all the improvements to the seating areas, better WIFI, all of our friends and of course who can not forget the over priced food! At least the vaccine has started to be given, so hopefully soon everyone will be protected.


Let’s Go Pens!!!!

President’s Thoughts
By Vicki Silva
Happy New Year, I pray that this year is nothing like the past one. I want to see hockey being played, my friends to be free of pain and disease, and of course a Calder Cup in the house. The optimism, that I felt in late December, was that there will be an NHL season starting in mid to late January with the AHL following in a few weeks, hopefully will be coming true. The ECHL started in December, but since a few teams have decided to suspend their season, all of those players have become free agents and teams have started to sign some of those players. This should prove to be very interesting, as the players compete to be seen by an NHL team. The NHL and the players association have officially decided to start playing on January 13th. The training camp in Pittsburgh will start on January 3rd. All teams will abide by the rules of the state in which they reside. The NHL has also temporarily realigned the teams, plus since the borders are still closed, we should not expect to see a Canadian team play against us for a while. Let’s hope that this virus will start to disappear and we can get back to our “normal” lives. You remember, bad official calls, dirty hits, over priced foods and of course a hate towards anything from Hershey and Lehigh Valley.
Let’s Go Pens!!!!

President’s Thoughts

Yes, it’s summer, the NHL began the march towards the Stanley Cup, back on Aug. 1st. Not sure how we did as I write the words. At this point I am still not sure about our season, when and where we will start. But I can’t wait until I am sitting in my seat at the arena, cheering on our boys. I see very positive signs, as we have signed a few new players. I also notice that other teams are lining up their players. I can’t wait until the ice is down. That would make me very happy. I truly hope that you spent the summer free from illness and have gotten ready for the season to start. I can’t wait until we get together for our meetings and or welcoming banquet. I really miss seeing you all. Because of the ongoing threat of COVID 19 virus most of the AHL hockey operations have slowed down to a trickle, but as soon as it gets back to normal, I am there
