Current Senators in record books for Binghamton
Last season, Binghamton captain Denis Hamel enjoyed his best hockey season as a professional. Hamel tied for first in the AHL with 56 goals and finished sixth in overall scoring with 91 points.

The 2006-07 season will mark the fifth anniversary of the Binghamton Senators in the American Hockey League.

The Ottawa Senators farm team debuted during the 2002-03 season and enjoyed a strong first campaign by leading the Eastern Conference of the AHL with 97 points and reaching the playoff semi-finals.

Over the past four seasons, Binghamton has been a productive source for talent to Ottawa as several former B-Sens have found their way to the NHL. The players have left their mark in Binghamton, as well.

With the NHL lockout in 2004-05, several of the league's players skated in the AHL. Among them was a handful of young Senators players.

Jason Spezza enjoyed a dynamite campaign that year leading the entire AHL with 85 assists and 117 points - both Binghamton team records. That strong season supported Spezza's ranking as the current career leader for Binghamton in assists (117) and points (171).

Last season, Binghamton captain Denis Hamel enjoyed his best hockey season as a professional. Hamel tied for first in the AHL with 56 goals and finished sixth in overall scoring with 91 points. Hamel's goal total of 56 is the best for a season by any Binghamton player and his career 124 goals also leads the way. Hamel was rewarded last season for his play with a couple of recalls to Ottawa.

While the scoring records of Spezza and Hamel are impressive, the one set by Brian McGrattan in 2004-05 could be the most difficult to break. McGrattan, a rookie in Ottawa last year, set a new Binghamton and AHL record with 551 penalty minutes in 2004-05. McGrattan also leads the career penalty minute standings for Bingo with 1,051.

Sens goaltender Ray Emery has four Binghamton records to his name. The 2005-06 Sens rookie had a franchise-best goals-against-average of 2.42 and save percentage of .924 during the 2002-03 season. He's also the career leader in victories with 67 and shutouts with 11.

Defenceman Christoph Schubert, also a rookie in Ottawa in 2005-06, has played the most games (216) in Binghamton history.
