An official date has been set for the Bakersfield Condors' return to play.

The American Hockey Association on Wednesday announced it would return to regular season play on Dec. 4. The decision was made in a conference call among the league's board of directors on July 30.

The league and its 31 host cities are expected to spend the ensuing months developing guidelines for a safe return to play in December.

The league has been on hiatus since March 12, when the AHL announced it was suspending activities in wake of the coronavirus. Play was officially canceled on May 11.

There is only one disease out there today.... Covid.


If people don't wise up we will be drowning in Covid Dec. 4th. Flu season on top of that? People will wonder what they have?


You have to be one of the most negative people around. Please just stop. You seem to have all the answers, along with the intelligence just run for office already!

@RBHS12: Thank you for saying what many have been thinking.


Wouldn't it be great if he were in charge and could share all that wisdom? But spreading negativity is a full time job. As John Rowles would say, "If I only had time".
