Determination Propelled Gruden to a Career Year

Wilkes Barre, PA – Most people want the same things. Money. Happiness. Love. Pizza.

Surely, Jonathan Gruden wants all of these things. But he also wanted one thing in particular this past season.

“I wanted the puck on my stick a lot more this year,” he said. “I think I’ve just gotten a lot more comfortable with the puck. You know, carrying it, making plays.”

This desire to play with the puck led to Gruden driving the action frequently with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, and it also led to career-high point totals.
