BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Bakersfield Condors’ highly anticipated return to the ice will take place next month. The announcement comes after months in which the American Hockey League and the team worked together on safety precautions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The season’s start date is Feb. 5, and fans will see the Condors play in a new eight-team Pacific Division.

“The safety of our players and everyone involved is first and foremost,” said Team President Mathew Riley. “Not to say there won’t be some hiccups or speed bumps along the way, but we wanted to give it a go.”
