PHT Morning Skate: Condors’ ‘Seinfeld Night’ was real, spectacular


PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

A little late on this, but it’s too good to pass up: the ECHL’s Bakersfield Connors went all-in on their “Seinfeld Night,” including introducing players as characters – Keith Hernandez was a highlight, although one wonders about Kramer’s ability to lead – and some Elaine dancing.

Best news may be that their “puffy shirt” jerseys are going on auction.

Here are some video highlights of the evening:
