Sterling, biggest FA signing in WBS history

Last season, every fan in Wilkes-Barre was outraged when their top veterans, captain Wyatt Smith and Co., couldn’t produce.
In the end, the fans’ constant bashing was well-deserved and the team was swept in the first round of the playoffs.
Enter “The Ticket.” Brett Sterling.
WBS super fan “nafsnep” coined him this. He’s their ticket to the Calder Cup.

It’s a one-year, two-way deal.

This is hands-down the biggest free agent signing in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins history.
Like most AHL super stars, Sterling shouldn’t be labeled a career AHL’er.  He’s only 26.
He buried 34 goals last year with Chicago (Atlanta’s AHL squad).
It turns out Colby Armstrong had a hand in this move.
He put in a good word.  Colby told him that both Wilkes-Barre and Pittsburgh are great places to play.
Buckle up. He has a mustache.

“Will get you 30 goals, might get you 50.”
