Binghamton Senators to Stay Put
The Binghamton Senators are staying where they are.
That’s the word from the AHL hockey team and Broome County officials following a report published in The Ottawa Sun that indicated the Ottawa Senators may have been planning to move their farm team closer to headquarters, positioning them in Belleville, Ontario.
The Binghamton Senators have a three year contract with the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, which B-Sens executive vice president of operations, Tom Mitchell says is not only expected to be honored but may be extended.
Even if the Senators were to move, Broome County Executive Debra Preston said Binghamton will remain a hockey town and another team would quickly be brought in.
