All home games are on tap for the Rochester Americans as they head into the last full week of January, and we’re thinking you won’t want to miss out on what we have in store. The Amerks are faced with three games over the span of four days this week and these games feature happy hours, theme nights, a specialty jersey and much, much more at The Blue Cross Arena.
Let’s take a look at just how much the Amerks have on deck at this week.
For the first time this season, the Amerks are taking on the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on Wednesday night with a 7:05 p.m. puck drop.
The Penguins are currently tied for fourth place in the Atlantic Division with a 19-13-2-3 overall record. While Wilkes-Barre/Scranton comes into Wednesday’s game going 6-4-0-0 over its last 10 games, the Penguins have not seen a win against Rochester over the last five years. In fact, the Amerks are a perfect 5-0-0-0 against the Penguins over that span, including a clean 2-0-0-0 mark last season.
Quite possibly the perfect game for the Amerks to get out of their current four-game skid.
There’s a lot of familiar faces making their return to Rochester come Wednesday. Penguins captain Taylor Fedun and forward Alexander Nylander were teammates during their three seasons (2016-17-2018-19) with the Amerks, assistant coach Kevin Porter was a five-year Amerks captain and goaltender Dustin Tokarski had a brief two-game stint in Rochester during the abbreviated 2020-21 campaign.

Friday’s 7:05 p.m. face-off is the first of a back-to-back set for Rochester against the Charlotte Checkers, and the final two games between the two teams during the 2022-23 campaign.
Rochester saw success against the Checkers in mid-December, collecting four points during their annual trip…
