Condors goalie Andy Chiodo keeps his eyes on the puck and is able to block the shot on goal by the Stockton Thunder in the 2nd period of their daytime game Thursday.

The Condors figured they solidified their goaltending when veteran Andy Chiodo joined the team last week.

Now they are back down to a single goaltender as Chiodo, along with defenseman Kyle Haines, left the team Friday to pursue opportunities overseas.

Chiodo, a veteran who has played extensively in Europe, is headed to Finland while Haines is going to Scotland.

"The Chiodo thing came right out of the blue," Condors coach Troy Mann said. "He's going to the Finish Elite League and that's too good an opportunity to pass up."

Haines started the season on injured reserve and had no points in four games.

"Haines said he had been contemplating Europe for a while," Mann said. "He said he wants to get his Masters and can do that in Scotland."

Chet Pickard, who was assigned to the Condors by Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League on Saturday, is now the lone goaltender. He saw his first action on Thursday, playing the final 15 minutes in relief of Chiodo.

Oklahoma City currently has three goaltenders the Edmonton Oilers assigned recently signed Ilya Bryzglov to the Barons for conditioning.

"Goaltending wise, we might know something next week," Mann said.

As for defensemen, the Condors are now down to six and looking to add one.

"We'll see if we can get a D in and we'd like to get a couple of forwards if we can but it's slim pickings right now," Mann said.
