Maxime Macenauer became the 9th Condor to graduate to the National Hockey League, when he made his debut with the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night. The Ducks lost 4-1 to the Buffalo Sabres in the game, which was played in Helsinki, Finland, but Macenauer was a +1 with a shot on goal in 10:35 of ice time. He was also the 468th player in ECHL history to make his NHL debut.
Macenauer was a rookie for the Condors in 2009-10, assigned by the Ducks. He skated in 45 games that season, missing significant time to injury, and recorded 5g-16a-21pts with 49 penalty minutes. G Timo Pielmeier, C MacGregor Sharp and RW Dan Sexton also reached the NHL after skating for the Condors that season.
