CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors and Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations Matt O’Dette have announced that the team has acquired F Max Campbell and D Dale Warkentin from the Toledo Walleye for D Olivier Dame-Malka.

Campbell, 25, had 20 points (11g-9a) in 30 games for Toledo thisseason.

He made a big contribution to the Thunder in the playoffs with 10 points (5g-5a) in 8 games.

The second year pro played his college hockey for Western Michigan University. With the Broncos, Campbell amassed 107 points (46g-61a) in 154 games played over four seasons. He was selected by the New York Rangers in the fifth round (138 overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Jake Varner Jerseys up for bid/Krush Cancer
Most of the jerseys worn by the Condors Saturday were bid upon after the game. Two of the jerseys – G Scott Greenham and F Liam Huculak – will be put up online next week. Stay tuned for bidding details. The proceeds will benefit League of Dreams.

In addition, a Chris Kushneriuk jersey was auctioned off separately, with the proceeds going directly toward the Condors winger’s medical bills as he battles cancer. The jersey brought in a staggering $5,000, just $200 shy of the all-time Condors jersey auction record.
