The Puck Stops Here

AHL’s Top Team

A week and a half ago I wrote about the Toronto Marlies (Maple Leaf farm affiliate) leading in the AHL standings.  They have been passed after splitting a series with the St John's Ice Caps (Montreal Canadiens affiliate).  The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh farm affilate) has moved into first place.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton has a record of 8-2 with one loss giving a regulation tie point.  This gives them an .850 winning percentage.  They have points in their last eight games played.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is the team with the fewest goals against this season.  This is thanks to some top flight goaltending.  Casey DeSmith has a .962 saves percentage and a 1.00 GAA.  e is sharing the load with Tristan Jarry who is posting a .936 saves percentage and a 1.69 GAA.  Both are among the league leaders.

Their offence is led by rookie Jake Guentzel who has 12 points in 10 games played.

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have been a solid playoff team for the past several years.  Last year they made the second round of the playoffs.  It is a very well run franchise if the Stanley Cup champions farm affiliate can also have the top AHL team.
