and head coach Michel Therrien will be honored this season by the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for their roles in the team’s success during its first decade in the American Hockey League.
To celebrate the WB/S Penguins’ 10th AHL season in 2008-09, fans were asked to select the “10th Season Team” – three forwards, two defensemen, one goaltender and one coach.
Joining Fleury and Therrien on the 10th Season Team are forwards Colby Armstrong, Dennis Bonvie and Tom Kostopoulos and defensemen Alain Nasreddine and John Slaney.
All members of the 10th season team also played for the Pittsburgh Penguins during their time in the Penguins organization.
The seven members of the team will be featured on special bobblehead figures to be given away at home games during the 2008-09 season. Therrien’s bobblehead night will be Dec. 13 vs. Portland and Fleury’s will be March 8 vs. Norfolk.
