Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton Senators starting things off with a bang on Saturday at home. Following that dramatic come from behind win over Syracuse in the opener, the B-Sens traded the hockey sticks for a different bag of clubs on Tuesday.
The B-Sens held their annual charity golf classic at Traditions at the Glen. Proceeds from the event benefit the charities for the Wendy's Walk for Kids.
Several players admitted they weren't the best golfers, but the team believes it's an important event, not only for the community but for bringing the guys together.
"It's really good for a coach to see players coming out away from the rink in a different atmosphere and they have different things to talk about and feel good about what they're doing as a team, not just on the ice, but in the community," said coach Luke Richardson. "It's a great team building event that we can take advantage of in different ways."
"Chemistry is a big thing. It helps you out," said David Dziurzynski. "When we won the Calder Cup, we were a close group, we came together well. So it's a big part and I think this helps out a lot."
Other B-Sens Notes:
In other notes on Tuesday, coach Richardson confirmed that captain Mark Borowiecki has practiced fully the last two days after a rough hit that knocked him out of Saturday's game. He said there will be no hesitation when he gets back on the ice.
Richardson said Mark Stone will miss time though. He said Stone was banged up after Saturday's game and he will be out for a while.
