The Bakersfield Condors of the American Hockey League will have a special soccer ball giveaway on Dec. 1 at the Rabobank Arena when they host the Manitoba Moose. The first 2000 children aged 17 and under will receive a soccer ball with the Condors logo on it and its team colors of blue and orange. 

The Condors have a record of seven wins and five losses for 14 points, while the Moose are at eight wins and seven losses for 16 points. Bakersfield's leading scorer is Brad Malone, who has five goals and eight assists for 13 points. Manitoba's leading scorer is Mason Appleton, who has seven goals and eight assists for 15 points. 

The Condors have won four of their last five games and have got themselves back into contention in the American Hockey League's Pacific Division. Their last win was a 4-3 win over the Iowa Wild on Nov. 10. Malone and Tyler Benson each had two points for the Condors as they had one goal and one assist for two points. The Condors also got goals from Caleb Jones and William Lagesson. 

Two players have joined the Condors this past week from the Edmonton Oilers, while two players have been promoted from Bakersfield to Edmonton. Jesse Puljujarvi and Kailer Yamamoto have joined the Condors, while Patrick Russell and Cooper Marody have joined the Oilers from the Condors. 

Puljujarvi, who was the Oilers first-round draft pick, fourth overall, in the 2016 National Hockey League Entry Draft, has one goal this season in 11 NHL games, with six penalty minutes and is a -5. He scored the game-tying goal for the Oilers in a 5-4 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 16.
