Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton Senators inducted 3 new people into the Binghamton Hockey Hall of Fame.

They include 2 former players and a former coach.

Identical twin brothers Chris and Peter Ferraro spent parts of three seasons with the Binghamton Rangers from 1994 through 1997.

During the 1995-1996 season, Chris posted AHL career highs in assists with 67 and points with 99.

He totaled 67 goals and 105 assists in 143 games in Binghamton.

Peter scored 88 goals and added 99 assists in 155 games with the Binghamton Rangers.

Both brothers were AHL all-stars 3 times, including 1997 when both represented the Binghamton Rangers in the AHL All-Star classic.

"This is where it kind of kick started our careers and into the pros. Obviously our ultimate goal was to get to the National Hockey League and be a part of the New York Rangers organization and this was a major stepping stone to it," says Chris.

"The fan support, the community support was just outrageous and I mean it was memories we'll never forget and Tom Mitchell being a tremendous owner, he treated us like we were his own," says Peter.

After their induction, the Ferraro's welcomed Binghamton super-fan Eddy to the ice and thanked him for being their number one fan.
