2 Comments

There will be outdoor hockey in California once again this season.

The American Hockey League’s Bakersfield Condors and Stockton Heat will head outside for a game on Dec. 18 at Raley Field in West Sacramento, Calif.

The Edmonton Oilers’ affiliate and Calgary Flames’ farm club will be a part of the Golden State Hockey Rush – a six-week holiday extravaganza, which runs from Nov. 20 to Jan. 3.

“This event will be a special showcase for our Pacific Division in its inaugural season,” AHL president and CEO David Andrews said in a statement. “We look forward to this celebration of hockey outdoors and to sharing the experience with the terrific hockey fans in Northern California.”

The Condors and Heat begin play in the AHL’s new seven-team Pacific Division this season.
