Wichita, KS - The Bakersfield Condors announced today that they have signed forward Jakob Stukel (Jacob STOO-kuhl) to an AHL contract for the 2019-20 season.
Stukel, 22, was loaned twice last season to the Condors. The second-year forward out of Surrey, British Columbia tallied six points (3g, 3a) in 10 games during his call-up. He had a solid rookie season for the Thunder, finishing with 42 points (19g, 23a) in 57 games.
