B-Sens headed to France for training camp

BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Senators, American Hockey League affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Ottawa Senators, announced today that the club’s 2014 training camp will take place in Lyon, France.

The B-Sens decision to hold its training camp in Lyon stems from the Syracuse Crunch recently announcing a season-long partnership with the Lyon Hockey Club Lions of the Magnus League, the top tier in France . Given the strong working relationship between the Crunch and the B-Sens, Syracuse invited Binghamton to participate in an effort to strengthen the teams’ and the AHL’s brand in an international setting.

"The opportunity to hold our training camp in France is one that we’re looking forward to for a number of different reasons," said B-Sens general manager Randy Lee. "With three games in just over a week, the schedule provides more than sufficient time for both competition and the chance to experience French culture, while also offering some unique team-building opportunities for the group.”

The B-Sens will arrive in France on Monday, Sept. 29, and will play three exhibition games, two against the Crunch and one against the Brûleurs de Loups ( Grenoble ) of the Magnus League, before returning home on Oct. 7.  The B-Sens full pre-season schedule is listed below:

·        Oct. 2, 2014 at 8 p.m. (2 p.m. EDT) vs. Syracuse Crunch at Patinoire Charlemagne Arena, Lyon
Oct. 3 or 4*, 2014 at 8 p.m. (2 p.m. EDT) vs. Brûleurs de Loups at  Patinoire Pôle Sud Arena, Grenoble
·        Oct. 5, 2014 at 8 p.m. (2 p.m. EDT) vs. Syracuse Crunch at Patinoire Charlemagne Arena, Lyon

* The date for the game in Grenoble will be confirmed upon the release of the 2014-15 Magnus League schedule.

“We’re thrilled to add some international exposure to our brand, the American Hockey League and to our existing rivalry with the Crunch. The inclusion of opposing a French club team in Grenoble not only demonstrates our desire to provide players with opportunities they may not receive elsewhere, but will also provide a good measuring stick for coaches and management ahead of regular season play."

Full season, half season and 20-game coupon books are on sale now.  For more information call the B-Sens Executive Office at 607-722-SENS or stop in between normal business hours, Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
