Notable players

Journalist Ken Baker - Played one game as goaltender for the Condors in the 2001-02 season, finishing with a win, a 5.00 GAA and a 0.857 save percentage.[6] Baker's dreams of playing professional hockey were cut short due to a tumor that inhibited his ability to build enough muscle for the sport. His book "They Don't Play Hockey In Heaven" tells the story of his experience with the Condors.

Miscellaneous

Team Highs

The Condors advanced past the 1st Round of the playoffs for the first time in their history in the 2005-06 season. They defeated the Long Beach Ice Dogs in seven games. The Condors lost in the seventh game of the next round against the Fresno Falcons, making it the longest playoff run in Condors history. The condors did it again the following year, defeating Fresno, but then lost in round 2 to the Alaska Aces in four games.

Infamous moments

In the 2004-05 ECHL playoffs, Condor Ashlee Langdone checked Alaska Ace Scott Gomez (who was playing that season in the ECHL due to the NHL strike) hard, sending him hip first into the sharp opening of the bench door at the exact moment the trainer opened it for a line change. The resulting injury, a broken pelvis, knocked Gomez out of the rest of the playoffs, and resulted in Langdone being given a boarding penalty and a one-game suspension. The incident drew a rather negative reaction due to Gomez' status as an NHL all star.
