|The Pens aren't playing hockey yet, but at least we know who we play on a few dates.|
So without further ado, here's the five guaranteed dates the team released:
Saturday, October 8, 2011
Friday, December 2, 2011
Saturday, December 17, 2011
Saturday, December 31, 2011
Friday, January 20, 2012
The opponents for these guaranteed dates will be announced when the AHL announces the schedule sometime later this summer. Looks like opening night could be on Saturday, October 8th, but as Scott Stuccio pointed out to Highland Park Hockey, the 2011-12 AHL season actually begins the day before.
We will have to wait and see. Interesting that the Penguins play on New Year's Eve again this year. Again, we are not sure of the opponents yet, which the AHL will release sometime in August.
