“Burgy becomes an unrestricted free agent on Sept. 1 meaning that he can choose where he wants to play regardless of who has his rights currently,” said Condors head coach Troy Mann. “I’ve told him that I would like him back next season, but as a veteran, it is up to him to decide his plans for next year.”
Veterans are defined as any player who has played 260 games or more in qualifying leagues. They become unrestricted free agents on September 1 even if they are qualified by a team, and are free to sign with any team in the ECHL at that point.
Burgdoerfer, 25, has played 269 games with Bakersfield in four-plus seasons, second most all-time for a defenseman in team history. He had career highs in goals (11) and points (22) to go along with a plus-15 mark in 2013-14. He earned his first American Hockey League (AHL) call-up to Oklahoma City in December and notched an assist in three games.
