Baby Penguins Update: February 11, 2017

Led by coach Clark Donatelli, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins presently are in first place in the AHL Atlantic Division with a record of 35-11-3 and 73 points—best in the league. The Baby Pens have scored 170 goals (second most in the league) and allowed 118 (fourth fewest).

Rookie Jake Guentzel leads the way with 21 goals and 42 points—second and fourth highest in the AHL, respectively. Veteran Tom Kostopoulos is second on team with 18 goals and 37 points. With nine goals and 15 points in his past 16 games, the Baby Pens captain has been on a tear.

On the flip side, prospect Oskar Sundqvist (three assists in his past 15 games) has cooled following a strong first half. The rangy Swede currently is third on the club with 14 goals and fourth in scoring with 33 points.

Fellow forwards Jean-Sebastien Dea (12), Josh Archibald and Garrett Wilson (11 apiece) and Carter Rowney (10) also have reached double figures in goals.

Defenseman David Warsofsky paces the defense with 35 points, including 10 goals and a team-best 25 assists. Warsofsky heads the AHL with a plus-30, followed by Archibald at plus-24.

Tom Sestito (97), Wilson (74) and Wilkes-Barre native Patrick McGrath (61) lead the Baby Pens in penalty minutes.

Tristan Jarry tops the team’s goalies in all major categories, including games (30), minutes (1807), goals against average (2.26), save percentage (.920), shutouts (1) and wins (21).

    Hey Rick,

    Funny you should post this, last night when I finally got home, the first thing I did was log on to my computer to check out the WBS stats. I was particularly interested in seeing how G Wilson and Prow were doing.

      Hey Other Rick,

      Great (???) minds think alike … 🙂

      Garrett Wilson’s been steady if unspectacular of late. Two goals and four assists in his past 15 games (including Saturday night’s game).

      Ethan Prow’s come on after a rocky start–a goal, five points and a +6 in his last 11.

      Rick
