Posted: Updated:

The American Hockey League announced today that Binghamton Devil Bracken Kearns was named the 2017-2018 winner of the Fred T. Hunt Memorial Award. Every year it's given to the top player who epitomizes the qualities of sportsmanship, determination and dedication to hockey. The thirty-six year old had 14 goals and 29  assists in 67 games with the Devil's.

According to the Binghamton Devils, this award was first presented by the AHL in 1978, to honor the late Fred T. Hunt. Hunt was a long-time contributor to the league who won three Calder Cup championships as a player and three more as a general manager during a career spent primarily with the AHL’s Buffalo Bisons and the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres.

As the B Devils season comes to an end, there will be another new face taking the ice tonight. Michael McLeod will be making his first pro-debut tonight here in Binghamton. Head Coach Rick Kowalsky stated, "we're coming to an end here and we want to give these young guys an opportunity... we'll get some of these young kids in and see if their up for the challenge."

The Devils are back home tonight taking on Syracuse Crunch at 7:05 p.m. at the arena.
