Mascot Type:


He’s dumped more popcorn on opposition fans than he’s eaten. He’s posed for more photos than a supermodel. He’s everyone’s favorite Penguin, but he’s never played a game. He’s TUX, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins mascot! Tux has been performing for fans at Penguins home games since the team’s inaugural 1999-2000 season, bringing smiles and laughs to young and old fans alike. Besides showcasing his dance moves and handstands at the arena, Tux has also made literally thousands of appearances at community events since joining the team nearly 20 years ago. He’s visited nearly every grade school in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties, has stopped by to bring smiles to kids at local hospitals, and has shared his talents at fundraisers and fairs across the area.
