Bobby Farnham back in AHL

Congrats are in order for North Andover’s Bobby Farnham, who has re-signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

The left winger, who played at Phillips Andover with the Rangers’ Chris Kreider, spent two previous years in the NHL’s version of the Triple-A. He played in Wilkes-Barre last season and he had three-game stints with Providence and Worcester after graduating from Brown University in 2011.

Farnham, 24, tallied three goals and eight assists in 65 games last winter with Wilkes-Barre.

The race begins at 10 a.m.
