Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton Senators have put up a fight early into their season with a 3 - 2 record, but Wednesday, it wasn't about winning games, but showing kids how to stop the puck.
The Senators held a goalie camp Wednesday night to teach kids some fundamentals of hockey.
They said they try to hold the camp at least once a month depending on the B-Sens schedule.
At each camp, a different goalie shows the campers the ropes.
Ben Bishop remembers how much pros inspired him when he was younger, and he hopes to make the same impact on these little hockey players.
6'7" Binghamton goalie, Bishop said, "I remember when I was a kid that sometimes the pros would come out and help out. I would just be in awe watching them. It's fun to do that now that I am in that position to help out the little kids. It's all fun out here, I think they are having a good time. It's really easy and a fun time."
Binghamton Senators Assistant Video Coach, Matt Meachem agrees with Bishop.
He said, "it's great knowledge for the kids. And for us, we're on the grind everyday, either with a practice or a game, on the ice or on the road. It's good to see little smiling faces out here working hard, it's what it is all about."
The campers left with some new moves, and the Senators move their way up to Maine on Saturday to take on the Portland Pirates.
