Bakersfield, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors, host of the 2010-11 ECHL All-Star Classic and ECHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, will be back on the Mercy and Memorial Hospitals Home Ice at Rabobank Arena for a pair of games on Friday and Saturday after returning from a contest in Las Vegas on Thursday. The Condors will face the Stockton Thunder on Friday and then welcome the Alaska Aces to town on Saturday. For both games, the doors open at 6 p.m. with the drop of the puck at 7 p.m.
On Friday night, the Condors will be giving away Schedule Magnets to all fans in attendance, courtesy of ESPN 1230 AM and Three Way Automotive Group.
