WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Saturday was a night filled with pizza and hockey in Luzerne County.

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins became the 'Old Forge Pizzas' for one night only in their game against the Syracuse Crunch at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Players wore specialty Old Forge pizza jerseys, and a new mascot named 'Pizza Boy' even made an appearance for the night.

Not to be cheesy but these jerseys are delicious 🤤
