WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Hopes are high Luzerne County will be able to keep the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
The Baby Pens' 10-year lease expires in June.
The Luzerne County Convention Center Authority and officials with the minor league team of the Pittsburgh Penguins have been meeting since April to hash out a deal.
One official believes an agreement could come soon.
The Baby Pens have been in Luzerne County since the arena opened in 1999.
