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:
*-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.
