Condors commemorate Pacific Division Championship on Saturday for Opening Night

Bakersfield, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors, host of the 2010-11 ECHL All-Star Classic and ECHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, kick-off the regular season on the Mercy and Memorial Hospitals Home Ice at Rabobank Arena on Saturday against the Las Vegas Wranglers. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the puck drops at 7 p.m. […]

When will we know who is on the roster? Wasn’t the roster due to the league on Monday?

Actually, it was due to the league today, Robert. Expect a press release about it on Thursday at some point. The ECHL will be sending out a release as well listing all the Opening Night rosters for all the teams. There will be more changes to the Condors roster over the next day or two (or three), especially since Opening Night isn’t until Saturday for the Condors, while much of the league opens on Friday. So that gives Head Coach Marty Raymond an extra day to make adjustments, and the roster announced on Thursday is by no means set in stone. For example, Stephane Goulet, who arrived only this week, will not be on the roster because as of today his immigration has not yet been approved, due to it being sent in a week later than everyone else.

Who is the Condors rival this season?

Dylan, We don’t really like anyone. Why don’t you tell us who YOU think is our biggest rival!

Okay… isn’t it a bit much to charge $5 for season ticket holders (who pay a decent chunk of change) to wish a family member Happy Birthday? I love to have it up on the big screen, but not to have to pay for it on top of our ticket fees. DISLIKE!

Thanks for the mailbag Penni. Because of the shear number of birthday announcements and the limited time we have to squeeze them into the game, we had to start enforcing the $5 fee. This helps legitimize each announcement and ensures we’re able to get them all in during game play. Though complementary birthday announcements aren’t one of the benefits, our Season Ticket Holders have some of the best benefits in the league!

Where is Eric Regan playing at these days? And second of all what happened to our Condors in that pre season game at home. I’m really hoping they don’t continue to play like that and it was only a pre season thing. Us fans want a Championship.

Eric Regan is under contract to the Anaheim Ducks, and attended training camp in Syracuse with their AHL team, prior to being assigned to the Elmira Jackals, their ECHL affiliate. As for the preseason game, just remember that it’s in the middle of training camp, and for the most part players are playing to try to earn roster spots. Guys were getting opportunities to play different roles than they normally would and haven’t had much time together as lines, and some eventually may not make the team. So we wouldn’t put too much stock in Saturday’s results, just like we wouldn’t put too much emphasis on how good they looked in Vegas two nights earlier, when the Condors picked up a 5-2 win. Neither game is overly indicative of what kind of team we ultimately will have.
