In their first season in the American Hockey League, the Bakersfield Condors will don a new primary logo on their uniforms. At a press conference on Thursday, in California, the Condors unveiled their logo for the upcoming 2015-16 season.
"This is another step in building the excitement for this historic move to the American Hockey League," said Condors Team President Matthew Riley. "The new logo is dynamic, fierce, and incorporates our new blue and orange color scheme. With this logo we are able to further our established brand of the past 17 years, while uniting us in our new chapter with the Edmonton Oilers, a team with great tradition over the past 35 years."
The logo is a modern, updated version of their previous condor logo. The condor now has orange skin, with royal blue colouring in the feathers, helping build association to the Edmonton Oilers brand.
"The new Condors logo is yet another great step in bringing Bakersfield fully into the Oilers family,” said Edmonton Oilers Assistant General Manager Bill Scott. “The iconic blue and orange colours, bold and vivid, will strike a strong chord with Condors fans and be a great symbol of the importance of the team and the City to the long-term success of the Oilers.”
The Condors will serve as the primary development team of the Oilers beginning this upcoming season. Click here to read more about the creation of the AHL Pacific Division and the Oilers affiliation with Bakersfield.
