Hershey Celebrates Its 11th Championship (The Photos)

The 2009-10 Hershey Bears Win Their 11th Calder Cup. Here is the group picture!

Tonight, we had the pleasure of having our own Hershey Correspondent Kyle M. down on the ice as the Hershey Bears celebrated their 11th Championship in Franchise History. And boy did he get some great photos.

Below the jump, check out Bryan Helmer hoisting the Calder Cup, the Bourque family celebrating Chris’s MVP Award, Doug Yingst getting a champagne shower from Michal Neuvirth and Francois Bouchard losing his dang mind. The overriding theme of these photos is “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!”

Alternate Captain Boyd Kane, Captain Bryan Helmer, AHL President David Andrews and Alternate Captain Keith Aucoin pose with the 2010 Calder Cup.

  • Rod Pasma, the guy who presented the MVP award to Chris Bourque, coached in Frederick for a bit. He was also drafted by the Caps in 1990 I think. Small world.

    It’s for situations like this that I love hockey so much, more than any other sport. Congratulations to the Bears and especially Chris Bourque.

    Love the priest in the background of Alzner’s picture. That beard is one epic entity. There must be creatures in it.
