Stingrays defenseman Johann Kroll lifts the Calder Cup at Giant Center
06/15/2010 5:50 PM - HERSHEY, Pa. … The Hershey Bears completed the most successful season in American Hockey League by capturing the 2010 Calder Cup championship with a 4-0 win over the Texas Stars at Giant Center in Hershey on Monday night.

The Bears, the top development team of the National Hockey League’s Washington Capitals, become the first team to repeat as Calder Cup champions since 1991, winning the title for the third time in the last five years and extending their own league record with their 11th overall championship.

Hershey defeated the Stars four games to two, becoming the first team in AHL history to win the Calder Cup after losing the first two games of the Finals series on home ice. The Bears also set a record with eight overtime victories during the 2010 postseason, and finished with a 16-5 playoff mark after winning a league-record 60 games in the regular season (60-17-0-3). Under first-year head coach Mark French, the Bears eliminated the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (4-1), Albany River Rats (4-0) and Manchester Monarchs (4-2) before defeating Texas in the Finals. The Bears’ 2010 playoff roster featured 11 players who appeared in the NHL with the parent Capitals this season.
