HistoryEdit

When the owners of the AHL team in 1997, the Binghamton and Broome County region of New York sold the franchise Binghamton Rangers to the parent club New York Rangers, the team was were replaced by the B.C Icemen of the United Hockey League. The B.C. Icemen logo was created by Endicott native and nationally syndicated cartoonist, Johnny Hart. In 2001 the original local owners, Dave Pace, Mark Palombo and Patrick Snyder sold the franchise and the new owner, David Wright who then initiated a move to bring back the AHL. Unfortunate for him, he declared bankruptcy and a new ownership group followed his lead and the AHL's Binghamton Senators, farm club of the Ottawa Senators, occupied the Broome County Arena. Former B.C. Icemen include Chris Grenville, Keith Aucoin, Pete Vandermeer, Dieter Kochan and Brad Jones.
