Overview


The Broome Dusters played their first home game at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena on October 18, 1973. The game was symbolic of what was to come. Down 6-0, they fought back only to lose 8-7. Their fan support followed a similar pattern, lukewarm at first and then ferociously loyal. Hockey became a passion for local fans and has continued to be so to this day. When the Dusters disbanded, they were followed by the Whalers, Rangers, B.C. Iceman, and the Senators. Hockey in Broome County tells this fascinating story with more than 200 photographs and engaging text. Relive the heroics of the Dusters' Rod Bloomfield, "the little guy that everyone picked on." Then skip ahead to the crowd-pleasing toughness of the Whalers' Randy MacGregor and the more recent brilliance of the Senators' Jason Spezza.
