Steidle joins Penguin organization
Former Geisinger certified athletic trainer Patrick Steidle, ATC, was recently named assistant athletic trainer for the Pittsburgh Penguins National Hockey League club. Steidle, who joined Geisinger Sports Medicine in 2007, had been the head athletic trainer for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins American Hockey League organization since the team’s inaugural season in 1999. The Moscow, PA, native and East Stroudsburg University graduate had been behind the bench for 1,069 of the 1,072 games in franchise history and has garnered league wide respect from players, coaches and peers. The entire Geisinger Sports Medicine family wishes Patrick all the best on his new endeavor.
