The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins will bring back rookie forward Chase Berger for the 2020-21 season.
Berger, 25, resigned with the team after anchoring the center position for most of his rookie season. He has appeared in 53 games for the WBS Penguins this season, scoring 10 points (1G-9A).
Berger, of St. Louis, played six games for the Penguins at the end of the 2018-19 season while playing on an amateur tryout agreement. He had one goal and one assist in that time.
Berger joined the Penguins after a four-year career at Penn State University, where he appeared in all 154 games the Nittany Lions played in that time to become the first player in program history to not miss a game. He had 118 points (51G-67A) in his career there. Also, Berger only received 17 minor penalties at Penn State while racking up a plus-45 rating.
Before college, Berger played with the Tri-City Storm (USHL) for three seasons, scoring 24 goals and 33 assists.
