The Hershey Bears
Hershey Bears
are an American professional ice hockey team based in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The current Bears club has played in the American Hockey League
American Hockey League
since the 1938-39 season making it the longest continuously operating member club of the league still playing in its original city.[1][2][3] The Bears currently serve as the primary development club for the NHL's Washington Capitals
Washington Capitals
and have been since the 2005-06 season. Since the 2002–03 season the hockey club's home games have been played at Giant Center, located less than half a mile west of Hersheypark
Hersheypark
Arena, the AHL club's previous home from 1938 to 2002. (The Arena was also the home to the EAHL Hershey Bears
Hershey Bears
from 1936 to 1938.) The Bears have won 11 Calder Cups, more than any other AHL team. They won their most recent title in 2010. Chocolate manufacturer Milton S. Hershey
Milton S. Hershey
first established the "Hershey Hockey Club" in 1932 to manage pro hockey teams based in Hershey. Now in its ninth decade, it has operated four different teams in three pro leagues, including the AHL Bears. Now called the Hershey Bears Hockey Club, it is a subsidiary of the Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company (originally called "Hershey Estates" and later "HERCO"), the entertainment and hospitality division of the Hershey Trust Company.[1][4] Gordie Howe, who was selected into the Hockey Hall of Fame
Hockey Hall of Fame
in 1972 and is known as "Mr. Hockey," once remarked, "Everybody who is anybody in hockey has played in Hershey.", although he himself did not play there.[5]

Team history[edit] The origins of "Hershey Hockey"[edit]

Hershey Ice Palace 1932 amateur hockey program

The history of Hershey hockey goes back to a series of amateur hockey matches played in Hershey between college teams beginning in early 1931. The first such formal hockey game ever played in Hershey took place on February 18, 1931, when Penn A.C. and Villanova University faced off in the 1,900-seat Hershey Ice Palace. Nine months after that successful inaugural contest, Swarthmore Athletic Club moved into the Ice Palace, where they played their first game on November 19, 1931, against Crescent A.C. of New York City. In the lineup that night for Crescent was a 23-year-old center named Lloyd S. Blinco, a native of Grand Mere, Quebec, who came to Hershey the next season and would remain continuously associated with Hershey hockey for a half century as a player, coach, and manager.[1][2] The popularity of these amateur hockey matches prompted chocolate-maker and amusement park-operator Milton Hershey and his long-time entertainment and amusements chief, John B. Sollenberger, to bring pro hockey to Hershey by sponsoring a permanent team. To that end Mr. Hershey established the Hershey Hockey Club (now called the Hershey Bears
Hershey Bears
Hockey Club) in 1932 which is now the oldest such continuously operating professional ice hockey management organization in North America outside of those operating the "Original Six" clubs of the National Hockey League
National Hockey League
in Montreal, Toronto, Boston, New York, Chicago, and Detroit, which were all established in or before 1926. The first hockey team the organization iced was the Hershey B'ars in the newly formed Tri-State Hockey League which included three other teams from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Atlantic City. After a single season in 1932-33, that circuit reformed itself into a larger, seven-club Eastern Amateur Hockey League in which Hershey played first as the "Chocolate B'ars" (1933–1934), then again as the "B'ars" (1934–1936), and finally from 1936 to 1938 as the "Hershey Bears," a name adopted in response to criticism levied by New York sportswriters and the league that the "B'ars" moniker was too commercial. (These writers had already informally dubbed the club as the "Bears from Penn's Woods" when they visited Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden
to play the New York Rovers.)[1][2] On December 19, 1936, the newly renamed EAHL Bears also moved from the confines of the Ice Palace (where they had to play on a small, 60x170-foot rink) into the newly constructed 7,286-seat Hersheypark Arena (then known as the "Hershey Sports Arena") built immediately adjacent to the older venue. Over the next sixty-six seasons, Bears' teams played a total of 2,280 EAHL and AHL regular season and playoff games at the Hersheypark
Hersheypark
Arena, which served as the home to hockey in Hershey from 1936 to 2002. Since 2002 the AHL Bears have used Hersheypark Arena
Hersheypark Arena
as their practice arena only.[1][2]

Since 1936, the Canadian- American Hockey League
American Hockey League
and International Hockey League had formed an eight-team "circuit of mutual convenience" playing an inter-locking schedule as the International-American Hockey League. However, just a month into the season, the Buffalo Bisons were forced to fold when their arena's roof collapsed, leaving the I-AHL with seven teams. On June 28, 1938, the Can-Am and IHL formally merged into a single league under the I-AHL name. One of the first acts of the newly merged league, which became the American Hockey League
American Hockey League
in 1940, was to grant an expansion franchise to the Hershey Bears
Hershey Bears
Hockey Club, which at the time still owned and operated the EAHL Hershey Bears, the then three-time regular season champions of that league. The new Bears took the Bisons' place in the I-AHL's West Division, allowing the I-AHL to play a balanced schedule for the first time in over two years. (While the new Bears began play in the I-AHL in 1938, the hockey club also continued to operate an EAHL team, the Hershey Cubs, for one more season before leaving that league altogether.) In 1977 Hershey became the only original AHL hockey club to have continuously iced a team in the same city since the league's inaugural season as a fully merged league when the Rhode Island Reds franchise was sold and moved to New York state as the Binghamton Dusters after the 1976-77 campaign.[1]

Defenseman Henry J. "Hank" Lauzon, an original EAHL B'ar, became the first player to sign with the new Bears. The former EAHL club's coach, Herb Mitchell, would guide the I-AHL Bears for their first three seasons. The Bears made a very good account of themselves in their first I-AHL campaign, winning the West Division with a 31-18-5 record--the first of 16 regular-season division titles. However, they were defeated in the first round of the Calder Cup
Calder Cup
play-offs by the New York Rangers' top farm team, the Philadelphia

Ramblers, three-games-to-two. Defenseman Herb Kalbfleisch became the first Hershey player to be named a First Team All Star that year while goalie Alfie Moore took Second Team honors behind the Ramblers' Bert Gardiner.[2][3] Former Boston Bruins' coach and Hockey Hall of Fame
Hockey Hall of Fame
member (elected 1971) Ralph "Cooney" Weiland guided Hershey throughout the War years winning regular season titles in 1942-43 and 1943-44.[3] The Bears' 13 losses in a 1942-43 are still the fewest by the club in a single season while Wally Kilrea's 99 points (31-68) that season gave Hershey its first of ten AHL scoring champions. Hershey won their first of 11 Calder Cup
Calder Cup
titles in 1947 under second year coach Don Penniston while also winning their fourth Division title in just nine seasons that year dominating the AHL's East with 84 points (25 more than second place Springfield) on a record of 36-16-12 behind All Star goalie Harvey Bennett, Sr. In the play offs Hershey defeated the Western Division champion Cleveland Barons in a four-game first round sweep outscoring them 24-3 before winning the Calder Cup
Calder Cup
finals in seven games over the Pittsburgh Hornets.[2][3] In 1948 then 21-year-old Winnipeg-born center Arnie Kullman joined the Bears, and except for 13 games with the Boston Bruins
Boston Bruins
in 1949-50 he would play his entire twelve-year career in Hershey. When Kullman retired in 1960 he had amassed 629 points on 253 goals and 376 assists in a Hershey uniform, a total which would only be eclipsed by Tim Tookey (with whom he shared number "9" that was eventually retired in honor of both players) and Mike Nykoluk. Kullman's 753 games as a Bear is also second only to Nykoluk's 972.[3] 1950s–60s[edit]

Arnie Kullman (1948-60)

From 1950 to 1956 the Bears were coached by a pair of former Boston Bruin defensemen: Johnny Crawford
Johnny Crawford
(1950–52), who guided Hershey to another Division title in 1951-52, followed by player/coach Murray Henderson (1952–56). In 1953-54, center George "Red" Sullivan became the second Bear to win a scoring title and the first to be named the league's MVP collecting 119 points (30-89) in just 69 games to set an AHL regular season scoring record which stood for almost thirty years while his 89 assists that season is still an AHL record six decades later.[2][3] Although never an All Star, another player to briefly skate in Hershey during this era was Don "Grapes" Cherry who as a coach (Rochester, Boston, Colorado) and later a broadcaster became and still remains one of the game's most visible and controversial figures. As a 20-year-old defenseman Cherry made his professional debut with the Bears during the 1954-55 season and also played for the club in 1956-57. As a TV personality and longtime commentator on Hockey Night in Canada, this former Bear is one of the best known figures in Canada

in any field.[2] With the demise of the AHL Pittsburgh Hornets in 1956, Bears' managers John Sollenberger and Lloyd Blinco were able to acquire the services of seven of the recent Calder Cup
Calder Cup
champion Hornets' best players including four-time All Star goalie Gil Mayer and the AHL's eventual all-time scoring leader Willie Marshall
Willie Marshall
(523–852—1,205).[3] The most important from Pittsburgh, however, was the AHL's only ever five-time First-Team All-Star defenseman Frank S. Mathers. who would remain active with the Bears for an unprecedented thirty-five seasons as All Star defenseman, player-coach, general manager, and club president. Under Mathers' leadership, Hershey won over 1,500 games and six Calder Cup
Calder Cup
titles while Mathers himself was honored with the Lester Patrick Award
Lester Patrick Award
in 1987 for his "contributions to hockey in the United States", and in 1992 he became the second individual to be elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame
Hockey Hall of Fame
based on a career in the AHL.[2][3] While the Mathers' era in Hershey started slowly with a fourth-place finish in 1956-57, he led the Bears back-to-back Calder Cup
Calder Cup
titles in his second and third seasons as the team's player/coach. With Bobby Perreault and Gil Mayer in goal, the league's top two scorers in linemates Willie Marshall
Willie Marshall
and Dunc Fisher, and Mathers himself earning All Star honors on defense for the sixth time in seven years, the Bears won both the regular season and play-off championships in 1957-58. Although Hershey finished the 1958-59 season with just a .500 record (32-32-6), they defeated the Cleveland Barons in the first round before upsetting the regular-season champion Buffalo Bisons in the finals, four-games-to-two, to win their third Calder Cup title.[2][3]

In 1958 the Bears also acquired the services of 23-year-old center Mike Nykoluk
Mike Nykoluk
who had split the previous two seasons between the Toronto Maple Leafs and their AHL club in Rochester.[2] When Nykoluk retired fourteen years later in 1972, he was the AHL's then fourth (now sixth) all-time leader in points with 881 on 195 goals and 686 assists and his 972 games as a Bear are 219 more than Arnie Kullman's second overall 753 in a Hershey uniform.[3] In 1972 his jersey number "8" also became the first to ever be retired by the Bears.[2] Although it was more than a decade before the Calder Cup
Calder Cup
returned to Hershey, during the first half of the 1960s five key players joined the club who would each stay from anywhere from seven to nine seasons: defensemen Barry Ashbee (1962–70) and Ralph Keller (1963-72), and forwards Roger DeJordy (1962–70), Michel Harvey (1963-71) and Gil Gilbert (1965–72). Together they would eventually account for 2,654 games played, 710 goals, 1,251 assists, and 1,961 points as Bears.[2] While these five and league MVP Mike Nykoluk
Mike Nykoluk
all helped the Bears win their division's regular-season title in 1966–67 for the first time since 1957-58 on a 38-24-10 record behind the goaltending of First Team All Star Andre Gill
Andre Gill
and a league-leading 52 goals by DeJordy, it would be another two years before the Calder Cup

returned to Hershey in 1968-69 defeating the Quebec
Quebec
Aces in five games. Gilbert led the league in scoring with 100 points (35-65) with teammate Michel Harvey close behind at 93 as the Bears also won their third consecutive Eastern Divisional title. That season also saw Frank Mathers

add the duties of GM to his portfolio with the retirement of Lloyd Blinco from that post.[2][3] 1970s-80s[edit] With the close the 1972-73 season Frank Mathers
Frank Mathers
ended his unbroken 17-year run as coach to devote his efforts full-time to his duties as GM. Including a brief return to the bench in 1984-85, Mathers compiled a personal coaching record of 610-513-134 for a career winning percentage of .539. His successor was former Bears' winger Chuck Hamilton (1973-79) who had spent seven seasons playing for Hershey from 1963 to 1970. In his first season as the Bears' coach Hamilton led a relatively inexperienced squad including nine rookies to a fifth Calder Cup

in 1979-80 under player/coach Doug Gibson who replaced first year coach Gary Green when he was unexpectedly promoted to the Bears' then NHL affiliate, the Washington Capitals, early in the season. Gibson also led the Bears in play-off scoring with a dozen goals and seven assists for 19 points in sixteen Calder Cup
Calder Cup
games while goaltending was shared by Gary Inness (6-1) who himself would later coach the team and Dave Parro (6-3). Although Hershey had finished four games below .500 during the regular season (35-39-9), the Bears defeated the Syracuse Firebirds

champions in 1980-81, under new coach Bryan Murray the club had its best regular season to that point with 103 points on a record of 47-24-9 and established a still standing record for goals with 357. Right wing Mark Lofthouse become the fifth Bear to win the AHL's scoring title (48-55--103), and on the night of February 7, 1981 he also set a team single game record eight points (4-4) as the Bears defeated the Rochester Americans

Among the Bears' rookies that year was a 20-year-old center Tim Tookey, who over three separate stints with the Bears (1980-82, 1985-87, 1989-94) over the next fourteen years collected 693 points (251-442) in 529 regular season games, second only to Mike Nykoluk's 808 on the Bears' all-time list.[2][3]

As had Gary Green in 1979, Murray left the Bears early in the 1981-82 season to become coach of the Washington Capitals
Washington Capitals
(replacing Green) and was replaced by former Hershey goalie Gary Inness under most unusual circumstances. Inness had retired as a player a year earlier but wanted to remain in Hershey and keep involved with the Bears. With no coaching position available to offer him, but in need of a new trainer, Bears' GM Frank Mathers
Frank Mathers
offered him that job. With Murray's promotion to Washington a month later elevated Inness the eleventh coach in the Bears' history. Inness would remain behind the Hershey bench until December, 1984, when Frank Mathers
Frank Mathers
returned to that post on an interim basis for the first time since 1973 and coached the club until then recently retired Hall of Fame Flyer winger Bill Barber
Bill Barber
took over for the final sixteen games of the season.[2] The 1984-85 season was also the first of a dozen year affiliation with the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Flyers who shared the club with the Boston Bruins that year before taking over as the sole parent club the next season and remained so through 1995-96. Former Flyer right wing and AHL Hall of Fame coach John "Too Tall" Paddock (1985-89) took over for the next four seasons and under his guidance the Bears averaged 45 wins a year, won two overall regular season titles, reached the play-off finals twice, and brought Hershey a seventh Calder Cup
Calder Cup
championship in 1987-88.[2]

HersheyPark Arena

In his first year as the Bears' coach, Paddock led the club to first place overall in the regular season with a 48-29-3 record and either four goals in the final game of that 1985-86 season, left wing Ross Fitzpatrick became the third Bear to score 50 goals in a season while rookie goalie Ron Hextall, now GM of the Flyers, set a team record with three consecutive shutouts at home. Both Hextall and defenseman Kevin McCarthy were First Team All Stars while linemates Fitzpatrick and Tim Tookey were both named to the second All Star Team. With five shut-outs and a 30-19-2 record, Hextall became the first (and so far only) Bear to be named AHL Rookie of the Year as well as winning the Baz Bastien Memorial Trophy as the AHL's top goalie. (As an NHL rookie the following season with the Flyers Hextall won both the Vezina Trophy and Conn Smythe Trophy.) Although th Bears lost to the Adirondack Red Wings in the Calder Cup
Calder Cup
finals, Tookey also won the Jack Butterfield Trophy as MVP of the play-offs.)[2][3] Although the Bears finished fourth in the Southern Division in 1986-87 with 87 points (43-36-1), their top line of Tim Tookey, Ross Fitzpatrick and Ray Allison finished first, fifth and seventh in overall league scoring with 124, 85 and 84 points respectively and accounted for a total of 125 of the Bears' 329 goals while center Mitch Lamoureux also finished in the top ten with 43 goals and 46 assists for 89 points good for fourth overall in the league. Tookey's 124 points (51 goals, 73 assists) also established a still standing single-season record for a Hershey player, made him the seventh Bear to win the AHL's scoring title, and just the third to win the Les Cunningham Plaque as the league's MVP. Tookey's 124 points that year is also still the sixth best single-season total for an individual player in AHL history, just fourteen points less than the current league record of 138 set by former Bear Don Biggs with the Binghamton Rangers in 1992-93.[2][3]

With the start the 1987-88 season, Hershey became the first professional hockey club outside of the NHL to reach the half century mark and that year also both won a then league record 50 regular season games and swept all three of its play-off series for an unblemished post season record of 12-0 and a seventh Calder Cup

title. After an unexpectedly slow 3-7-0 start, goalie Wendell Young
Wendell Young
was returned to Hershey from the Flyers and went 33-15-3 with a 2.77 GAA while rookie Darryl Gilmour appeared in 25 games compiling a 14-7-0 record and 3.68 average. Along with veterans such as Bears' leading scorer center Mitch Lamoureux, wingers Al Hill, Don Nachbaur, Kevin Maxwell, and defensemen Steve Smith and Dave Fenvyes, the team also had nine first and second year players including second-year winger Brian Dobbin who finished third in team scoring behind Lamoureux and Maxwell with 83 points (36-47) even though he had been recalled to Philadelphia
Philadelphia
seven times during the campaign and only played in 54 games for Hershey, and rookie center Glen Seabrooke also broke the 30-goal mark (32) and was fifth overall in Bears' scoring with 78 points. On defense the Bears had second-year blueliner John Stevens, now associate coach of the two-time Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, rookie Gordie Murphy who is now an assistant coach with the Flyers, and Jeff Chychrun, another sophomore. On May 12, 1988 Hershey completed its unprecedented 12-0 sweep to the Cup by defeating the Fredericton Express, 4-2.[2][3] Modern era[edit] The Washington Capitals
Washington Capitals
returned as the Bears NHL parent club in 2005 after a 21-year span with the Boston Bruins, the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Flyers, and the Colorado Avalanche. (The club has also had earlier NHL affiliations with the Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Buffalo Sabres). As of the 2009–2010 Calder Cup
Calder Cup
Finals, the Bears have played in 22 Finals series, a league record.[3] The Bears went back-to-back in 2008–2010 to win their 10th and 11th Calder Cups, winning their most recent cup versus the Texas Stars. The Bears became the first team in AHL history to win a Calder Cup
Calder Cup
series after trailing the series 0–2, going on to win 4 straight to take the series 4–2. On December 20, 2006, the Bears played their 5,000th regular season game at the Times Union Center
Times Union Center
in Albany, New York. The Bears scored seven times en route to a 7–4 win versus the Albany River Rats.[6] On May 2, 2007, the Bears played their 500th Calder Cup
Calder Cup
playoff game in franchise history at the GIANT Center. The Bears played the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins
and won 4–3. In 2010 the Bears set a new club record with 12 straight wins, topping their previous record of 11 set the season earlier in 2008. Over the stretch from December into January the Bears outscored their opponents by a 52–22 margin.[7] The Bears also set a new AHL record for consecutive home victories at 24. Hershey went without a loss at GIANT Center from November 29, 2009 to March 19, 2010.[8] Hershey has set an AHL mark for consecutive playoff series victories, with eight wins in a row. Besting the record shared with the 2005–2007 Bears and the 1990–1992 Springfield Indians. 2006 Calder Cup
Calder Cup
championship[edit] In 2006 the Hershey Bears, with new head coach Bruce Boudreau, returned to the playoffs after a two-year absence. The team came off with a strong start by winning their first two series, against the Norfolk Admirals and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, in four games each. In the Eastern Conference finals, the Bears played the Portland Pirates. The Bears quickly took a 2–0 series lead, but then lost the third game. The Bears then rebounded and won game four, to take a 3–1 series lead. However the Bears were unable to finish the job and were forced back to the Giant Center
Giant Center
for game seven. The Bears trailed throughout the game, but managed to tie it with a goal from Graham Mink just over two minutes remaining. In overtime, the Bears finished with a goal by Eric Fehr, to win the series 4–3. On June 15, 2006, The Bears won the Calder Cup
Calder Cup
by a series mark of 4–2, defeating the Milwaukee Admirals. This marked the ninth time the franchise had won the Calder Cup, which tied Hershey with the original Cleveland Barons for the highest number of AHL playoff titles. Hanging Ten[edit] The following season, Boudreau's Bears finished with a 51–17–6 record and appeared to be on the verge of repeating as champions. They rolled through the playoffs defeating Albany in five games, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in five, and won the Eastern Conference in a sweep of Manchester. The Bears appeared to have a tenth title wrapped up against Hamilton, who had finished the regular season with 95 points compared to Hershey's 114. The Bulldogs, however, upset the Bears 4–1. The next season was disappointing to the Bears – Boudreau was promoted to head coach of the Capitals, and the Bears would finish the season 42–30–2–6, losing to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 4–1 in the first round. The next season, the Bears bounced back. Finishing with 49–23–2 record, they would go on to sweep the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Phantoms in the first round, overcome a 3–2 deficit to beat Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the second, and then defeated Providence, 4–1, in the Conference Finals. They opened their 21st Calder Cup
Calder Cup
appearance with a 5–4 overtime win over the Manitoba Moose
Manitoba Moose
in Winnipeg, but lost Game 2, 3–1. Back home in Hershey, the Bears scored a pair of wins (3–0 and 2–1) before falling in Game 5, 3–2. In Game 6, the Bears scored 3 goals before Manitoba even got on the board, and then an empty-net goal sealed it. With the 4–1 Game 6 victory the Bears defeated Manitoba and finally scored their league-record tenth Calder Cup. 2009–10 season[edit] Following the Calder Cup
Calder Cup
win, head coach Bob Woods was promoted to Washington as an assistant coach. He was replaced by Mark French, a former coach in the ECHL. The 2009–10 Bears won a franchise-record 12 consecutive games and notched a 24-game win streak at the Giant Center. They went on to win 60 games, breaking the old AHL record of 57 and finishing a point shy of tying the single-season points record. The Bears rallied from a 2-0 deficit against the Texas Stars

wore simpler uniforms with the colors of chocolate brown and white. The previous logo used a silhouette of a skating bear with a hockey stick in brown centered in a white, ovular shield outlined in brown. For their move to the Giant Center, the Bears unveiled a new identity-its team colors being burgundy, black, gold, and silver. The primary logo was a maroon bear, outlined in black, swatting a hockey puck centered below the Hershey Bears

unveiled newly designed Reebok Edge uniforms, including the Hershey Bears. At this time they unveiled an updated version of the "old school" jerseys with the word BEARS written diagonally in Black on a white home jersey and the word HERSHEY written in white on a maroon away jersey. Both jerseys featured black on both sides, the Washington Capitals
