The Bakersfield Condors of the American Hockey League have announced two key home dates at the Rabobank Arena for the 2018-19 regular season. The Condors will have opening night on Sat., Oct. 6 and then have their annual teddy bear toss on Sat., Nov. 24. It has not yet been determined who the Condors will play on either of those nights. 

The Condors will have a 68 game schedule, with 34 games expected to be at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield. They will play all teams within the Pacific Division and half the teams within the Central Division during the regular season. 

There are two other very special nights on the Condors schedule. There will be a Star Wars night and a jersey night, but those special games have not yet been announced. 

This is a very busy week for the Condors parent team, the Edmonton Oilers. The National Hockey League Entry Draft takes place this weekend at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Tex, and the Oilers have the 10th pick overall. There is a strong possibility that whoever the Oilers select could spend some time in Bakersfield either this season or in 2019-2020.
