The century club

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

 

In Saturday's post, We made a brief mention of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins' 10th anniversary team as selected by fans. Seeing a few names like Dennis Bonvie and Alain Nasreddine on the roster, it was obvious that fans voted with their hearts on this one. And there's nothing wrong with that. That's what something like this is intended for.

But after seeing this team, and having a job that doesn't afford us the financial or social abilities to actually spend a Friday night like a normal person in their 20s, we did some digging in the Internet Hockey Database, and figured out the leading career scorers with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

The following is a listing of every player with 100 or more career points with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton:

Player Games

Tom Kostopoulos 318 97 149 246
Tomas Surovy 239 89 88 177

Shane Endicott 292 73 93 166
Kris Beech 171 53 97 150
Michel Ouellet 182 71 73 144

*-Still with the Penguins organization.

Not exactly a list full of NHL All-Stars, but then again, if you are a legit NHL talent, you're not going to spend too much time in the AHL.
