Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A former Binghamton assistant coach is honored with an induction into the Binghamton hockey hall of fame.

Mike Busniuk started his coaching career as an assistant coach for the Binghamton Rangers from 1993 through 1997.

When the franchise moved to Hartford, Busniuk followed, helping the team win the Calder Cup in 1999-2000.

Busniuk returned to as an assistant coach for the Binghamton Senators for 7 more seasons.

"I'm very happy to be here. I'm very excited to get the call and to come back to Binghamton and see everybody and to see a couple of hockey games. I haven't seen pro hockey in a couple of years now, that was my life for the last 18 years so for me to come back was very good...I enjoyed it," says Busniuk.

In addition to the Hall of Fame plaque, the Ottawa Senators sent a framed jersey to be presented to Busniuk.

With the three recent inductees, the Binghamton Hockey Hall of fame now has a total of 37 members.
