REPORT: Pittsburgh Penguins renew AHL affiliation with WBS Penguins, agree to 10-year extension

Regular readers of this space will recall back in December when I made my annual trip to Pittsburgh to watch the parent club Pittsburgh Penguins, and I visited the team store to make my Christmas purchases. I noticed at the time that WBS Penguins jerseys were not displayed on the racks, even though Wheeling Nailers jerseys could still be found...a change from prior years, where WBS jerseys were displayed prominently alongside their ECHL brethren. Upon inquiry with the staff at PensGear, I was told that the plan at the time was for Pittsburgh to relocate its AHL affiliate upon the expiration of the team’s lease agreement on June 30.
