Binghamton 5 @ Oswego 0 – Thomas Sullivan stopped 29 pucks and Greg Simmons scored twice to highlight the Senators’ 5-0 win over the Stampede on Friday. With the win, the Junior Senators clinched the Northeast Division Regular Season title. Eric Melso, Rory Gresham and Will Darling lit the lamp as well, as Binghamton peppered Oswego netminder Ben White with 64 shots. White finished with 59 saves on the night.
Oswego 1 @ Binghamton 9 – Eight skaters scored in front of Casey Boone’s 11 saves as the Senators romped past the Stampede 9-1. Seth McArdle led the way with two goals, and was joined by Liam Murphy, Markus Cook, Greg Simmons, Thomas Liebold, Zach Bell, Caden Dearborn and Rory Gresham with Binghamton goals on the night. Dinmukhamed Dzhangarashev also starred for the hosts with four assists. Wade Moak provided Oswego’s only goal as Ben White and Manny Legace recorded a total of 43 saves in the Stampede net.
The Junior Senators move to 32-6-0 on the season after another weekend sweep. They will host the Skylands Kings this upcoming weekend with 8pm game times on both Friday and Saturday nights at the Ice House Sports Complex in Binghamton.
The Senators faced a strong test from two games against Northeast over the weekend but passed with flying colors, thanks to a pair of game-winners by Padgeon. The forward tallied once to seal a 2-1 victory for Binghamton on Friday, before posting his fourth hat-trick of the year – and second in his last four games – alongside two assists in a 9-2 win over the Generals on Saturday. That outing marked Padgeon’s fourth five-point game in his last six tilts and stretched his point streak to eight games (13g-12a-25pts in that span).
The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) has announced the rosters and schedule for the 2019 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament, which will be held from February 18-19, 2019, at the New England Sports Village in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
The NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament is played in conjunction with the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament. The event is one of the most highly-scouted events of its kind, with hundreds of junior, NCAA and NHL again expected in attendance this season.

Defenseman, Dinmukhamed Dzhangarashev
Forward, Eric Melso
Forward, Mike Padgeon
Forward, Greg Simmons
Goaltender, Jeff Zero
Head Coach, Anthony Langevin
Anthony Langevin will Head Coach Team Northeast. Assisting him will be Casey Mignone from the Rochester Grizzlies. All five players and Langevin will head to Attleboro, MA on Sunday, February 17th to compete against the best in the league for 2 days of games.
Congratulations to all 6 individuals on this awesome accomplishment! You can watch all the action of the Tournament on HockeyTV if you can’t make it to Attleboro, MA in mid-February.
Binghamton 2 @ Northeast 1 – Mike Padgeon scored just past midway through the third period to snap a 1-1 deadlock and lift the Jr. Senators to a 2-1 victory over the Generals on the road.

Jeff Zero snagged the 41-save win, allowing goals only to Northeast’s Tyler Rudek and Carson Asper. Jeb Barrett finished with 43 stops in the Generals’ crease.
The Binghamton Junior Senators move to 30-6-0 on the season with a commanding lead in the Northeast Division. With a win this upcoming weekend against Oswego, the squad will clinch the division for the 3rd season in a row.

Padgeon and Simmons bagged two goals each en route to five and six-point nights, respectively, with Dinmukhamed Dzhangarashev pitching in a pair as well. Seth McArdle, Markus Cook, Nicolas Lusignan, Nico Corsaro and Eric Melso each scored once to round out the offense in front of a shared 17-save shutout by Casey Boone and Thomas Sullivan.

The Junior Senators move to 27-6-0 on the season and face off against 2nd place divisional opponent, the Oswego Stampede, this upcoming weekend. 8pm Friday night and 12pm Sunday afternoon game times at home at the Ice House Sports Complex in Binghamton, NY.
Cook led all Northeast Division Star of the Week nominees with seven points in just two games last week, breaking him out of a four-game funk that saw him put up a single assist, which came back on December 17th at the Showcase. Cook logged two goals and an assist on Friday in a win over Skylands, finding twine on a power-play in the contest. He then switched to setup duties on Saturday with four assists. Cook now boasts 59 points in 31 outings this season, good for 19th in the NA3HL.
