by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

BAKERSFIELD, CA - One was a Thunderbird, the other a Winterhawk.

One shoots left, the other right. 

One games Call of Duty, the other NBA 2K.

Both are Condors. 

Both are defencemen.

And both are navigating the professional level under the same roof.

GENE'S BLOG: What Happens in Vegas

In his latest blog, Gene Principe writes about the Oilers game against the Vegas Golden Knights

by Gene Principe / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas but I hope that's not the case for the Edmonton Oilers. 

Not after their performance in the Nevada city on Saturday night. It was another example of what the Oilers can do when they put their minds, hearts and bodies into a game. With their baccarat against the wall trailing 2-1 after two periods, Edmonton stepped it up. They could have sailed through the third hoping to win but knowing it wasn't expected by anyone outside their own locker room. Instead, they were all in. Equalizing in the final frame and winning it in overtime. Incredible night and way to end their schedule before the CBA-mandated All-Star break.

FEATURE: Mantha focused on becoming reliable player

Oilers defensive prospect Ryan Mantha is focused on his personal development and becoming a reliable professional player

by Chris Wescott / EdmontonOilers.com Head Writer

BAKERSFIELD, CA - In speaking with Ryan Mantha, you wouldn't be able to tell he was a rookie.

For a 21-year-old defenceman navigating his way through his first professional season in the American Hockey League, he seems mature beyond his years.

"He's a little bit older, he's a little bit more mature than some of the other guys, where they might be a little more carefree," said Bakersfield Condors Head Coach Gerry Fleming. "Ryan is very goal-oriented in the way he structures his life, not only as a player but off the ice as well."

In Depth: Condorstown

This week's Sunday In Depth is on the Bakersfield Condors

THE FOREWORD

BY MATTHEW RILEY, PRESIDENT OF THE BAKERSFIELD CONDORS

As anybody that witnesses it, hockey is a great sport. A great sport to play, a great sport to watch and our goal's been to get people to try it. We've done a lot of things to get people here and sometimes it's something other than the hockey. Then they get here, they see the sport and fall in love with it, which also helps grow it.

Grow the Condors brand, the Oilers brand and the sport of hockey in general while continuing to increase our value to the community. There's a pride factor in there but also, it's just good for the citizens who live here and in the surrounding areas.

That's been the plan and that's why sometimes we're a little bit outside the box.

We want people to experience the game and at the end of the day, have an enjoyable time for their entertainment dollar.
