BINGHAMTON, NY- The Binghamton Black Bears, in collaboration with the Binghamton Hockey Hall of Fame, are excited to induct two new members at Hall of Fame Night on Saturday, April 6th.

In his first season as an AHL head coach, Kleinendorst led the Senators to the Calder Cup Final, defeating the Houston Aeros four games to two, in the best of seven series. In their incredible playoff run, the B-Sens overcame 3-1 series lead from Manchester, outlasted Portland in six, and swept Charlotte in the conference finals. In his three seasons with the Senators, Kleinendorst recorded 98 regular season wins and 16 playoff victories.

Across various levels ranging from youth to professional, Shimes has announced over 1,000 games.
