Condors Malone

Brad Malone celebrates a goal in December 2017 against the Ontario Reign. 

The Bakersfield Condors released their 2018-19 schedule on Wednesday. Here are some highlights, along with a complete schedule listed below:

Opening night: That would be Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m., when the Condors host the Stockton Heat at 7 p.m. It also marks the debut of first year head coach Jay Woodcroft.

Teddy Bear Toss: This annual fundraiser never seems to disappoint. Last year, close to 9,000 fans packed Rabobank Arena. This year the team hosts Tucson on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. Bring your stuffed animals and let ‘em fly.

Field Trip Day: School children throughout Kern County, as well as some outlying areas, converge at Rabobank Arena. The 10:30 a.m. puck drop on Thursday, Nov. 29 comes against the Ontario Reign.

New foe: Bakersfield welcomes the AHL’s newest addition to the Pacific Division, when the Colorado Eagles come to town Saturday, Nov. 17. The Eagles are an affiliate of the NHL's Colorado Avalanche.

Fresh faces: Ten different opponents come to Rabobank Arena this year. The list includes the Manitoba Moose, Iowa Wild, Texas Stars and San Antonio Rampage — all teams from outside the Pacific Division.

Of note: Monday through Thursday games get underway at 6:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday contests start at 7 p.m. while the lone Sunday game (Nov. 4) is a 5 p.m. puck drop.
