Prince named CCM/AHL Player of the Week

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Binghamton Senators left wing Shane Prince has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Nov. 30, 2014. 

Prince scored five goals and recorded one assist for six points in three games last week for the Senators. 

On Wednesday night, Prince scored twice and was named the game’s first star in a 4-3 overtime loss to St. John’s. He followed that up with two more goals and an assist – all in the third period – to help Binghamton rally for a 6-3 win at Syracuse on Friday night. And on Saturday, Prince extended his overall scoring streak to seven games (6-5-11) with another goal as the Senators got past Rochester, 4-3. 

A second-round pick by Ottawa in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Prince has recorded nine goals and eight assists for 17 points in 18 games with Binghamton this season, good for second on the team in scoring. The 22-year-old native of Spencerport, N.Y., has totaled 48 goals and 52 assists for 100 points in 152 AHL games with Binghamton over his three pro seasons. 

In recognition of his achievement, Prince will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Senators home game.
