Ducks, Bakersfield renew affiliation.

The Ducks have renewed their affiliation agreement with the Bakersfield Condors, which served as the team’s ECHL farm team last season.

Anaheim assigned right wing Chad Painchaud, defenseman Andrew Thomas and center Matt Caruana to Bakersfield and a record eight Condors were called up to the American Hockey League, including six players from the Ducks organization.

“We are very excited to extend our affiliation agreement with the Condors,” said David McNab, the Ducks’ vice president of hockey operations. “The close proximately [sic] of Bakersfield and the Condors on-ice success make the organization an ideal affiliate for the Ducks and California hockey fans.”

“Last season was a get-to-know-each-other season, and I think in
Year Two the benefits to both organizations will increase and our fans will be pleased with the on-ice results,” Bakersfield president Matthew Riley added.

The Ducks have yet to name an AHL affiliate for next season.
