The schedule features a five-game home-stand from Feb. 6 through Feb. 15, as well as a seven-game road-trip Oct. 19 through Nov. 5. Another highlight on the schedule is the rematch of the Eastern Conference Finals when the Portland Pirates visit Wilkes-Barre, Dec. 13.

Apparently how it works in the AHL is very different from the NHL, especially since the NHL has moved to a balanced schedule. The ‘Baby Pens’ will play 80 games, 50 against teams in the East Division. The East Division is comprised of seven teams: the Albany River Rats, Binghamton Senators, Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Hershey Bears, Norfolk Admirals and the Philadelphia Phantoms, plus the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins.

The other 30 games will be played against teams from the three additional AHL divisions (Atlantic, North and West).

The entire schedule is as follows:
