The American Hockey League’s Bakersfield Condors have signed four players to one-year contracts, the club announced Saturday.
Forward Cameron Wright, goaltender Tyler Parks, as well as defencemen Connor Corcoran and Jake Johnson will all be joining the team for the 2023-24 season.
Wright, 24, spent last season with the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies appearing in 64 games. He scored 29 goals and 63 points in those games while adding 136 PIM. Come the playoffs, the 6’1, 194 lb. right-shot winger added two more goals and seven points in six games.
Parks, 31, spent last season in the Arizona Coyotes’ organization splitting time between their AHL and ECHL teams. With the Tuscon Roadrunners in the American League, he appeared in 21 games posting a 8-9-2 record, a .888 save percentage and a 3.27 GAA. His numbers improved over the same amount of games in the ECHL with the Atlanta Gladiators, with whom he posted a 13-6-1 record, .926 save percentage and a 2.48 GAA. Parks stands at a towering 6’6, 198 lbs.
Corcoran, 22, has been in the Vegas Golden Knights’ system since he was drafted in the fifth round, 154th overall by them in 2018 as a part of their second draft class. Standing at 6’2, 192 lbs., he appeared in 11 AHL games with the Henderson Silver Knights, and another 59 with the ECHL’s Savannah Ghost Pirates. In the American League, he drew in for 11 games scoring two goals and six points, while in the ECHL, he had 10 goals and 29 points.
Lastly, Johnson, 24, was already within the organization last year. The 6’0, 185 lb. rearguard wrapped up his NCAA career spending it with Quinnipiac University last year where he scored 15 points in 39 games. When his season ended, he joined the ECHL’s Fort Wayne Komets — the Oilers’ affiliate — scoring two goals in three regular season games. He appeared in seven playoff games scoring two assists.
