Some local youth hockey players got a little help from some people who know a thing or to about goaltending.
The Binghamton Senators held their 2nd Annual Goalie Clinic Wednesday night at the Veterans Memorial Arena. The Clinic was originally started last year by then B-Sens goalie Mike McKenna with the purpose of giving young goalies a chance work on their skills. Things like stopping the puck and controlling the rebounds. B-Sens goalies Nathan Lawson and Marc Cheverie along with Equipment Manager Tom Severence and B-Sens Video Coach Matt Meacham, were all on hand to give instruction. It was something they were more than happy to do.
Matt Meacham says, "The guys really like to come out. They come up and tell me that it's almost like watching themselves. They remember themselves as little kids out there and they wish they had this. And just for me and for the guys. Like you see a smile the kids face and it just makes it worth it."
The B-Sens see action again this Friday when they square off against the Connecticut Whale at the Arena. Puck drops at 7:05 pm.
