Series: First meeting

Notes: The Condors head in a three-game swing through the midwest without one of the key cogs in their recent success — winger Iiro Pakarinen. The Edmonton Oilers placed Ryan Nugent Hopkins (bruised sternum) on injured reserve Thursday and recalled Pakarinen. Pakarinen, who was sent down to the Condors on Dec. 2, had 13 points (9g, 4a) in 18 games with the Condors and was a plus three … Forward Kyle Platzer has been sent to the Wichita Thunder of the ECHL where he started the season. Platzer has eight points (5g, 3a) in 23 games since being called up to Bakersfield … Goaltender Laurent Brossoit has played every game since being sent down by Edmonton, going 2-1-1 with a 2.37 goals-against average and .923 save percentage. The Condors still have three goaltenders and Eddie Pasquale and Nick Ellis are on the trip … Ty Rattie leads the Condors in points with 28 (16g, 12a) ...The Condors are 5-2-3-0 over their last 10 and are coming off a 3-2 loss in San Jose on Monday ... Iowa is 4-4-0-2 over its last 10 and is coming off a 5-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday … The Condors play in Chicago on Saturday and finish up the trip in Rockford on Tuesday.
