While first-year players have made significant contributions to the Bakersfield Condors' success this season, head coach Jay Woodcroft cautioned to not overlook veteran teammates who've enabled their younger brethren to shine.

The Bakersfield Condors dominated the San Jose Barracuda on the road for a 7-1 win on Saturday, adding their lead atop the division. The Condors (36-17-2-1) have won 20 of their last 22 games.

The Bakersfield Condors exploded to a four-goal first period, held a 6-1 advantage entering the third period and held off a late San Jose Barracuda rally to an 8-4 win on Wednesday in San Jose.

Bakersfield had just tied the San Jose Barracuda early in the second period when Condors goaltender Shane Starrett found himself facing a pair of San Jose players racing in on him with nary a Condor around.

Caleb Jones and Evan Polei each scored a pair of goals as the Condors rolled to their 10th straight victory, beating the Ontario Reign 6-2 on Saturday night in Ontario.

The Edmonton Oilers have assigned defenseman Caleb Jones back to the Condors. Jones was originally recalled by Edmonton for his first NHL stint on Dec. 12, scoring one goal and assisting on five in 17 games with the Oilers.

The Bakersfield Condors scored three goals in each of the second and third periods in a 6-2 victory over the San Diego Gulls 6-2 on the road Saturday night.

The month of January, with 13 games in three states and six different cities may appear to be a marathon, but heading into Friday night’s home game against Stockton, Condors coach Jay Woodcroft said it’s time for the stretch run.
