BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – On Monday the Binghamton Devils cleaned their lockers and cleared out for the offseason. General Manager, Tom Fitzgerald and Mark Dennehy met with the media before their departures.
In head coach Mark Dennehy’s first professional season, Binghamton finished with the second worst record in the American Hockey League and one of the worst goal percentages in the league. It was an odd year, even by minor league hockey standards.
Binghamton had eight different goalies throughout the course of the year but at one point the parent team in New Jersey had twelve players that at one point or another played in Binghamton this season. Binghamton Devils General Manager, Tom Fitzgerald, says the product on the ice was not acceptable and that is something he is going to change this summer.
“Winning is a culture, expectations, standards are important and our standards need to improve,” said B-Devils General Manager Tom Fitzgerald.
“Part of that development is having a winning culture,” said B-Devils head coach Mark Dennehy. “I would say obviously on the development part, I think at one point we have twelve guys in the NHL at once, that we were successful in terms of continuing to developing that winning culture we have some work to do.”
