Oilers prospect Joe Gambardella scored a goal and added an assist in his professional debut Wednesday night for the Bakersfield Condors.
After the Texas Stars took a 3-0 lead, Gambardella assisted on the Condors first goal of the game at 18:59 of the opening period.
The 23-year-old forward from UMass-Lowell potted his first career American Hockey League goal at 8:58 of the third period to draw the Condors within one. Gambardella pounced on a rebound to the right of the Stars' net to make it a 4-3 game.
The Condors would lose by that score, falling to 31-26-5-1 on the season. They continue this five-game road trip Friday night in San Antonio.
