Binghamton Hockey Hall of Fame Inducts Three
The Binghanton Hockey Hall of Fame, established in 1998, inducted three new members on Friday night at the Floyd L Maines Veterans Memorial Arena prior to the Binghamton Senators game versus the Syracuse Crunch.
New members of the Binghamton shrine include Steve Stirling, Patrick Snyder and Ray Emery. All three were on hand to accept their awards from Binghamton Senators Vice-President of Operations Tom Mitchell, also a Hall of Fame member.
Stirling played with the Broome Dusters from 1974-76 but really made his mark as a coach. His experience includes a two-year stint as coach of the New York Islanders. He continues his coaching career as an Assistant Coach with Binghamton.
Snyder held front office positions with the Binghamton Whalers and Binghamton Rangers and was the General Manager for the BC Icemen. He established the Binghamton Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998.
Emery played parts of four season with the Binghamton Senators before having a solid NHL goaltending career seeing action with four teams. He helped the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup Championship in 2013 when he went 17-1-0.
